What do you do for weekend fun?

The weekend is here and I am dreading tomorrow. What will we do? Will we go to a store (I do NOT like going to the store with all three boys...sometimes it's okay, but other times, not so much)? Will we play outside? (That might be a good thing, finally!) Will we just sit around, do nothing, then wonder where our day went?

What do you and your family do on Saturdays? I'm looking for free/cheap/easy ideas.

4 Words to brighten my day:

I know this will not help you this week, but I have found a free thing to do with the kids on Saturday. It turns our Home Depot & Lowes run free workshops for kids.

blogged about it here http://melaniescrafts.blogspot.com/2008/10/saturday-fun.html

From my blog (there are links on the blog)...
The first Saturday of every month Home Depot holds a kids workshop from 9am-noon and twice a month on Saturdays, Lowe's also does a build & grow workshop from 10am-11am (next one is Nov. 8th). This week my son made a skeleton at Lowe's. This week you were supposed to make a pumpkin, but they ran out. I found out we should really sign him up for the Lowe's ones. At each one of these workshops they get the kit to make, an apron, and a certificate of completion. At home depot they give them a pin with a picture of what they made and at Lowe's they give them a patch.

Hope that helps. =D

I packed up the kid and went with my BFF to the zoo. We are going to be on zoo overload, since we are going again monday. It's just so nice out, though!

My weekend consists of running all the errands I didn't want to do by myself {or without Troy's help}. So our weekends are usually kind of lame! If you figure out anything cool, you'll have to let me know too because we need to get out more and do something!
