Friday nights my DH goes out to his chosen weekly night off (mine is cheap tuesday movies but I only go once every 3-4 weeks). Saturday if DH works the kids and I go visit my mum and step dad or go to a local event like a school fete or whatever we can find on. Saturday nights we usually have a few friends over for dinner.
Sundays DH never works, so we do family stuff. Go to movie world or sea world or somethint, the beach, park, on a day trip somewhere. But 90% Of the time we get out of the house and do something.
Our weekends rarely include child free time for me. My mum will babysit the kids once in a blue moon and then we'll go out but no one else babysits our kids so our time revolves around family stuff

Friday nights for us are generally movie / TV series catch up for us, if nothing planned. We play with DS and spend time with him in the afternoon, going for a bush walk or getting out the front and playing.
Saturdays- beach day, bush walk day, park day. We try to limit our spending by taking our own lunches. If it's raining, we will stay in and laze about.
Sundays- generally DS and I will visit my parents for a few hours and DP will have a nap or clean up the house.
Sounds boring, really.

DP and I generally take turns going out on the weekends. Tomorrow night I'm going out and then Saturday DP is (that's rare though- most of the time one of us doesn't go out at all). Saturday mornings I go for a run and DP does a bit of housework, then he often takes the kids out (usually to a friend's house) while I have some time to myself, or we will spend the day running errands. Sundays I often do something just with DS in the morning, then swimming lessons and we all go for lunch. By the afternoon the kids are exhausted so Sunday arvos we generally stay in and the kids watch tv while I do some batch cooking and DP either chills out and plays games or goes out with mates. We rarely do outing stuff like zoo etc on the weekends. I prefer to do that in the week when it's not so busy.

Nothing different any other day. DF works nights as a bartender Thursday-Sunday plus any other shifts he picks up on days he isn't working.
Tuesday & Wednesday is usually our 'weekend' if he doesn't pick up a shift. We try to go for a nice drive and have lunch somewhere.

I am back at work now and our eldest 2 are back at school, so we are tending to keep weekends quiet at this time of year- we generally have fun at home. Friday nights is always a glass of bubbly and some special food on the verandah for DH and I after the kids go to bed at about 6. We have made that a bit of tradition, instead of going out for a date night. I love doing a weekly shop at about 730am on Saturday mornings on my own, then swimming lessons, then bbq in the afternoons, usually we have some family or friends or neighbours drop by. Also lots of cooking because that is what I love to do. I try not to do too much household work on weekends, except gardening and cooking.

Our weekends are pretty much:
Saturday: ballet for DD and soccer for DS (during the season) in the morning. Rest of the day we chill, go to the beach, bake, do jobs around the house. We generally catch up with friends in the evening.
Sunday: church in the morning. We normally go out to lunch with church friends. Afternoon is a lot like Saturday. In the warmer months we normally spend the late afternoon at the beach scootering/ bike riding and have a picnic dinner.
Of course birthday parties get factored in and special occasions. I love weekends!

Anything from: cafe date with DS and DH; visiting my mum; visiting DH parents; visiting friends; go for walks down to the water; do stuff around the house.
We don't socialise a whole heap on the weekends. DS and I mainly do that during the week

Saturday mornings we pretty much just go to my mums, then relax at home for the rest of the day.
Sunday we go to church, then relax for the rest of the afternoon. Every 2nd Sunday of the month we have a luncheon at church and catch up with everyone.

Saturday is usually like any other day for me, my partner works Mon-Sat. Sometimes DD and I will do something with my sister if she's not working. We don't have any other friends in the area, so it doesn't make a difference it's a Saturday.
Then Saturday night my partner comes to bed with me :O He does a lot of his work at night, so Saturday is the only night we sleep in the same bed. Sunday we BOTH get up at 7am (or I get to lay in bed for a bit while he gets DD breakfast), then we try to do fun stuff as a family. Usually a festival/markets/playground/beach, or sometimes we'll go see his family. We'll often do some shopping as well, and then do stuff around the house while DD naps.
