Arbor Annie’s Weekday Roundup – August 27-31

It’s the last week of summer. It’s your last chance to visit pools and water parks, and enjoy time with the kids before they head to school. Highlights of the week are the Saline Fair and Summer Games Wrapup.
Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - August 27-31

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

This is the last week to visit most of the local pool or water park options. Over the weekend, we had great times at Jump Island and Rolling Hills Water Park.

Ann Arbor Swimming Pools & Other Places to Get Wet

This week is also the Saline Fair. For toddlers, preschoolers, and younger elementary children, I definitely recommend Children’s Day on Thursday – it was one of my favorite events of the year when my daughter was younger. The fair offers rides, animal interaction, and more.

If you’ve been playing the AADL Summer Game, don’t miss the Summer Game 2018 GAME OVER Gala on Friday night.

    Movies

    Our top movie pick this week is Sing Along Beauty & the Beast on Tuesday at Michigan Theater.

    New last weekend is A.X.L. about a robotic dog. I don’t know much about the film, but it is rated PG.

    We saw Christopher Robin last weekend. While we all enjoyed it, the movie is better for adults and older kids than younger kids.

    Christopher Robin - Pooh on the bridge

    Continuing in theaters are the animated films Hotel Transylvania 3 and Teen Titans Go! Of course Incredibles 2 is our top animated pick.

    If you haven’t seen Ant-Man and The Wasp, we really enjoyed it. Be sure to check our review and parental guidance before heading to the theater.
