With the break in the weather this weekend, outside activities are the way to go!  This weekend is a bit light on organized activities; so, I have included a list of other fun outside activities to consider.  I might even hit a few of these myself as I have Saturday off from photographing weddings! Maybe I will see you at the City Market Saturday morning, or at the Wyandotte County Fair that evening.  Be sure to say “hello” if I do!
