Things to do with families in Boston this weekend

This weekend is all about the butterflies, with not one but two happenings featuring these winged specimens at the Museum of Science and the Trailside Museum. We've also got two of MP's favorite August events including one with stars, s'mores, and meteors and the other a real summer campout. Music lovers should head to Jamaica Pond for an instrument playground followed by a jazz concert, and ICA Watershed is hosting it's interactive storytelling program again. Finally, let's all head to the Common to support our favorite baseball team at this awesome summer Out of the Park event
