Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks August 19-21, 2016

The HUGE news in Ann Arbor this week is that M-14 will finally be reopened after months of construction. The westbound lanes opened on Thursday with the eastbound lanes scheduled to open on Friday. I have to admit that I was tempted to drive on M-14 just because I could. If the eastbound lanes were open, I definitely would have.

On a less happy note, the other big news this week is that Jungle Java Ann Arbor has closed. They’re hoping to reopen after the car dealership took over the building they had been leasing.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

The weather is looking questionable again for this weekend. That works fine for us since we’re planning to spend the weekend painting my daughter’s room – her much delayed Christmas present.

Goldfish 5 Year Anniversary Stone School Cooperative Preschool August 2016 Open House

Goldfish Swim School is celebrating their 5th Anniversary with a party on Saturday afternoon. Check out the fun party with a moon bounce, dunk tank, open swim, and more.

If you’re looking for a preschool for this year, I definitely recommend Stone School Cooperative Preschool. My daughter attended for two years and we had a great experience. They’re having an Open House on Saturday morning.

Do you have a child who loves Thomas the Train? Day out with Thomas is coming to Flint’s Crossroads Village starting today and running through next weekend. Get your tickets now.

Day Out With Thomas at Crossroads Village

The last event that I want to highlight is the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show at Willow Run Airport. Every year I say I want to go, but we never end up being able to make it. We’re often on vacation in August or have a project planned (like this year we’re painting my daughter’s room).
