Have an amazing weekend and [City + Family]


These past three weeks have been full of stress and excitement. I went on a guerilla job hunt one week, got hired three times, quit one job, and tomorrow I'll be attending my final orientation.

I've been relaxing the past few days preparing for another week of chaos. Being home with the kids again has been bittersweet. In just a week and a half, I've noticed more tantrums out of them than ever--I'm sure out of a need for attention and the constant spoiling they've received from their grandparents' watch. But I've also come to appreciate all the little moments that we share with a less serious approach.

In that spirit, here's some City + Family This Weekend Only just for you:

The Ford Raptor Round-Up: Get a chance to drive a Ford Raptor around a professional course, eat, and be merry all day tomorrow 11.9.13. Even though online sign-ups are now closed, if you show up early, you may still be able to steal an open spot. Food trucks and a ton of family friendly activities will also be in attendance.

Tivoli Village Annual Autumn Harvest Festival: Beefed up even more than last year, this year's fall festival at Tivoli Village still includes the free petting zoo and gorgeous gourd displays; new to this year's festivities are a chili cook-off, a Chicago Brewery Beer Truck, and contests galore. Saturday from 8 am to 4 pm, enjoy the typical Fresh52 faire plus the added family-friendly fall events. For the full list of activities, check out TV's harvest fest page.

Mums the Word! Star Nursery Kids' Garden Club: At every Star Nursery tomorrow 11.9.13, the kids can plant their own mums, the flower of the season. Go between 10am-12pm for this free event.

Sesame Street Live "Elmo Makes Music": It's Sesame Street Live, people. Your kids will dance and sing along to their favorite songs as they learn about new "instruments" in a Blue Man Group-meets-Sesame Street kind-of-way. Tickets start at $23 each with two shows a day on Saturday and Sunday.

Family Storytime at Summerlin Library: A dragon-themed storytime awaits complete with a dragon craft for your kids to make and take starting at 11am.

Monsters University Screening at Windmill Library: The Saturday Movie Matinee of the week starting at 1 pm.

Teen Scene Movie [Hunger Games] at Summerlin Library: If your kids are excited for the imminent release of Catching Fire, send them to the library for a screening of the Hunger Games and free pizza at 2 pm.
