6 Fun, Family-Friendly Events to Check Out This Weekend (August 3 – 5, 2018)

Are you ready for the weekend? Travis’ birthday was on Monday and our wedding anniversary is tomorrow so we’re celebrating both special occasions this weekend! We always celebrate our anniversary with the kids and then on a different day we have a date night to celebrate just the two of us.

If you’re celebrating something special this weekend and don’t know where to go, then check out my top picks for family events going in Detroit and the metro area!

Hope you have a fun weekend!
