Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – September 21-23

The weather forecast this weekend is for a gorgeous fall weekend. After a few hot days this week, I’m glad to see temperatures a bit lower and less humid than last weekend.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - September 21-23 Sponsored by Brickworld

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

The weather this weekend is summer like, but fall activities highlight the weekend.

Our top pick of this weekend is our sponsor, Brickworld. My daughter loves LEGO so she has been looking forward to the event.

You can revamp your child’s wardrobe for the coming winter months at the Mom2Mom Plus Expo planned by the Ann Arbor North Girl Scout Troops or at the Saline Rec Center Mom2Mom Sale.

Mom2Mom Plus ExpoSunday is Ypsilanti Fall River Day. We had a great time at the Gallup Park Huron River Day in May, so I know my daughter would love to go to Ypsilanti River Day too. She discovered she loves kayaking this summer.

With temperatures in the upper 60s, it’s a good time to celebrate fall at an apple orchard. We went apple picking two weeks ago and are slowly working our way through our apples.

Ann Arbor Outdoor Activities - Ann Arbor Orchards & Cider Mills

Since we’ve already picked apples, I’m considering a Corn Maze for this weekend.

    Ann Arbor Free Morning Movies at Quality 16 - Fall 2018

    The House with a Clock in Its Walls opens this weekend, and is a great pre-Halloween movie. We haven’t seen it, so we don’t have a review to share.

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

    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.
