Knowing what to expect, when and where is a comfort to me and definitely characteristic of a career in public relations/marketing that carries over into my personal life. Our family's weekends usually include a family outing in-between board games, homework and chores. That time is precious, so I make sure we head out the door with a fully-stocked diaper bag and all that we need to know about where we're headed. However, the stars do align unexpectedly sometimes. Whether you want to plan your weekends in detail or just read more about what's happening in the community, check out MetroFamily's calendar and Weekend Picks. There's something for everyone, no matter what works for your family.
