I think this is the latest we ever went to Grand Rapids. We were to go earlier but forecasted thunderstorms had us choose a different day (rain never came but just as well, it was lovely yesterday). Despite the many times, I've gone to Grand Rapids (Michigan's 2nd city 150 miles away)
I never bother to remember street names. I navigate according to landmarks. Where we park is across from the BOB, a big red building. However I went right pass it as new construction covered it up. Just as well, we ended up at a private structure that was cheaper and much less crowded.
I took many photos; these above are only the tip of the iceberg. Perhaps I will post more later.
While I was out and about, Steve was babysitting Allie. She wanted to ride her trike to the park. Steve somehow (!!!?) forgot how to get to it and relied on directions from a 3 year old. The trip was very long (should be only a few blocks). Steve finally figured out that Allie would not turn down a street that had a lawnmower in one of its yards. She hates lawnmowers and other loud things. Steve ended up having to carry both Allie and the trike.
The clouds seemed to have lifted. I am no longer on the verge of tears so yay.
