Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

Summer has finally arrived in Ann Arbor with temperatures forecast to be well into the 80s later this week. We just have to get through a rainy Monday first.

That makes it a great week to check out local pools, water parks, and spray grounds. My daughter braved the water all last week for swim team, but maybe we’ll head to a pool just for fun this week.

Top of the Park continues this week (except for Monday. Be sure to check out our Top of the Park Kids Guide for the daily schedule, tips for attending, and more. I’d love to go to Black Panther Tuesday night, but my daughter has a softball game. While the game will be over before the movie, she’s usually pretty worn out afterwards.

Strawberry picking should continue to be great this week. I am still hoping to get out one day this week. I want to make strawberry preserves and a strawberry sauce for ice cream.

Our top AADL picks for the week are Paper Airplanes on Monday, Ultimate Design Challenge or DIY Flashlight Building on Tuesday, Harry & the Potters Concert on Wednesday, Survival Camp! on Thursday, and Puppet Show! on Friday. Start collecting your codes now!
