What's On This Weekend: August 25-27

On a whim last summer, we left our neighbor's 90th birthday party and headed to Kalamazoo for the Kalamazoo Nature Center's annual Mudfest. It is now one of my (many) favorite summer festivities. There is a giant mud bog to splash around in, a long slip 'n' slide (bring bug spray) and lots of other activities to entertain the whole family for hours. I cannot recommend it enough.

Whether you hit up the KNC or opt for something less dirty, enjoy this gorgeous end-of-August weekend, friends!
