What's On This Weekend: May 19-21

May 19, 2017

If these things were up to me, my family would finally be making its way up to Great Lakes Kite Festival in Grand Haven this weekend. Or maybe watching the lambs run out to pasture for the very first time at the Critter Barn, because how ridiculously cute would that be? My kids would no doubt have front row seats to the Wild Kratts hijinks in GR.

Instead, we will be hunkering down on an airplane for 14 hours -- wheeeeee! So please clutter my Instagram feed with lovely pics of all these fun things while I throw back an in-flight cocktail and hope that the Kindle Fire batteries hold out.  


Have a lovely weekend, friends!
