Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks September 16-18, 2016

We’re starting to fall back into the school routine. This week ended up being a busy back to school week for us with evening activities 3 out of 4 days. 

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - September 16-18

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup 

Looking at this weekend’s activities, I definitely see a few themes this weekend. Friday night is “date night” with two parents night out programs – Pets & Pajamas at HSHV and Parents Night Out – Kids Night at Flipside

Looking at the calendar, you can definitely see that Fall is in full swing with events like Sunday’s Pittsfield Township Harvest Festival and this year’s first Halloween events – It’s Scary Garden Time! at Nature’s Garden Center. For us, we are starting our Halloween celebration with a trip to Cedar Point for Halloweekends (and so I can attend Bloggy Conference). This is our 3rd year attending the conference. We can’t wait for the rides. We’re also hoping to convince my daughter to experience a few more of the haunted attractions this year.

In planning the weekend, UofM has another home game (the 3rd of 5 in a row at home) at 3:30p on Saturday. If you’re planning to attend the game, check our 6 Tips for Attending a Michigan Football Game with Kids. But for most of us, game day means dealing with the traffic. It will definitely make it interesting trying to get to some events on Washtenaw and downtown.
