I tell you, the week absolutely flies by when it’s my turn to come up with the weekend activity lists. That part of the job is not actually so pleasant (really, I don’t need things to move any faster around here), but what I do enjoy is getting inspired to spend family time at some really cool places around town. And since I’ve got a little time on my hands this weekend, here’s what I came up with to choose from — and share with you all as well:
