Grandparents Day is this weekend. If the Grandparents are in town, check out our list of Fun Activities with the Grandparents.

Ann Arbor Activities with Grandparents

Local Cider Mills are open! Some even opened last week and I missed the announcements. U-Pick Apples are ready at Spicer Orchards. We’ll be sure to update our list of Orchards and Cider Mills once more u-pick dates are announced.

It’s also the weekend that many of your child’s activities may be starting. I remember the years my daughter played soccer and we had to figure out how to navigate to games around football traffic. If you’re in that boat this year, we found using secondary roads made it much more manageable.
