Weekend Guide, May 4-6

This is a sponsored post.

Who’s enjoying the spring weather this week? Me! Me! Shorts on? You bet! Lunch on a patio? Is there any other way? Sleeping through thunderstorms? Absolutely! And it’s Children’s Book Week AND Star Wars fans are looking forward to May the Fourth Be With You and Revenge of the Fifth Day AND ice cream is the best treat on a warm day. BEST WEEK EVER!

And there is SO much going on this weekend! Not only is Saturday Cince de Mayo (psst. check out our Mexican restaurant guide), but it’s also the Kentucky Derby. Are you headed to a party to celebrate one or the other, or both? Or will you be spending your Saturday morning checking out a farmers market?

ICYMI: Lake Country Family Fun has teamed up with Chiropractic Company in Oconomowoc and Julie Collins Photography to create our first annual Love Your Belly event honoring pregnancy and motherhood. The event will be on Saturday, May 12 from 9:00 am to noon. For more details, RSVP to the event on Facebook and invite your friends. Can’t wait to see you there!
