Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

I was trying to decide whether I wanted the 3″ of snow Friday morning and a snow day. Turns out we got a pretty morning, that has mostly melted by lunch time.

The big events this weekend are FoolMoon and FestiFools. We always have fun at FestiFools. However, we never seem to be able to make FoolMoon.

This weekend also marks the kickoff of National Library Week. with a couple of AADL events. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, the My Turn: A Sensory Friendly Sunday is at the UM Museum of Art.

  • Movies

    There are no significant new movies for families this weekend. However, we are a bit curious about Rampage next weekend. My husband and I loved playing that video game years ago. 

    Last week’s new release was Ready Player One. My daughter would rather read the book first – but we’re 39th on the hold list at AADL. At this rate, we’ll have to wait for video.

    Last weekend we saw A Wrinkle in Time. We did enjoy the movie. While I loved the book as a kid, I honestly don’t remember any of it 30 years later. My one complaint was that the movie seemed to spend a lot of time building the story and then reached the resolution fairly quickly.

    A Wrinkle in Time - Meg & Mrs. Whatsit

    Black Panther continues with a strong showing at the Box Office. Have you checked out our Black Panther Review with Parental Guidance?
