Mother's Day Weekend Events Round-Up

Happy Mother's Day from one Ann Arbor mom to another!
I wanted to wish all the wonderful Ann Arbor Mom's a fabulous Mother's Day. May you each get a fantastic breakfast in bed, a few extra minutes of quiet coffee, time to take a leisurely bath or whatever it is you wish for the most. Mostly though, I hope each of you take a few moments for yourself!

For the rest of the weekend though, let's see what events are happening around town!
Friday, May 9:

Attention all Ann Arbor Moms, tonight would be a great night to drop your kids at "Kidz Night Out" with Bricks 4 Kidz (Ages 5-12 - Ann Arbor Senior Center, 1320 Baldwin. $30/$25 for siblings). at 6:00 p.m. Kids will enjoy a variety of craft activities, games, challenges, and open play using motorized Lego sets, plus get pizza, dessert, juice & water. 

After dropping them off, head down to Ladies Night Out starting at 5:00 p.m. Many of the stores and restaurants in Downtown Ann Arbor will be having in-store specials and activities. Be sure to pick up your Ladies Night Passport too - Filling it out will enter you in drawing for a prize package worth over $3,000! The first 1,200 shoppers will also receive a fun, flashing light up ring and with a purchase of  $25 or more you can get free parking.

Saturday, May 10:

Is it time for the kids to Touch a Truck or perhaps swim during Safety Day at Goldfish Swim School? There are plenty of crafts for Mother's Day at Whole Foods (10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.) and the Ann Arbor District Library and Ypsilanti District Library. Although some of the free events require pre-registration so be sire to check the library websites.

For non-Mother's Day activities there is Nature Fun for Kids (2:30 p.m.) at County Farm Park for kids ages 4-7, free dinosaur tours, planetarium shows, and family history day at the Ypsilanti District Library at 11:00 a.m.

Sunday, May 11:

On Sunday perhaps a stop at the Domino's Farm Petting Zoo is in your near future, they are now open 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. You should also consider checking out the Hands-on DNA science demo at the UM Museum of Natural History at 11:00 a.m. If you wanted to get out and about I heard about a great Mother's Day Wildflower Hike at the Leslie Science & Nature Center (1:00-2:30 p.m.)

Regardless of what you choose to do, please enjoy your weekend plans, take some time for yourself and be sure to leave time in your weekend planner for YOUR mom!
