Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks August 12-14, 2016

We’re entering the home stretch of summer. Personally, we finished our last summer trip earlier this week. Now that August is here, back to school information is starting to trickle out, so be sure to check our Back to School Information for AAPS.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks August 12-14

Personally we’re planning to spend more time watching the Olympics over the next week. So far my daughter’s really enjoying the Olympics, especially the swimming. I think she’ll really like the track & field too.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Activities usually go through a lull in August as people go on vacation, but there are still some great events this weekend! Both Saline and Dexter are holding big events this weekend – Saline Summerfest and Dexter Daze

Unfortunately there’s a high chance of thunderstorms particularly on Saturday, so indoor activities may be a good choice (it is finally raining as I type this). Friday is the last of Quality 16’s Dollar Movies showing Despicable Me 2.

Twelve Oaks Mall is a good destination this weekend after the opening of their temporary American Girl Store last weekend and the opening of Hanna Anderssonthis weekend.

We’re hoping make a trip to Rolling Hills this weekend, but we’ll have to check on the weather. Don’t miss our water park picks in the 10 Places to Get Wet this Summer.
