Here’s your weekend list! If you’re headed north or south, you’ll want to check out the list over at ThriftyNWmom compiled by super bargain sleuth Sia of Centsible in Seattle. If you’d rather stay around the South Puget Sound, I’ve got a whole list of events right here. If you’re new to the site, I write about affordable fun for kids and families in the South Sound. I have new ideas every day, and weekend activities lists like this one, every Friday.

Last day for Norman Rockwell at the Tacoma Art Museum Enjoy hot dogs, beer, and family art making activities.
