Little Getaway

The highlight of our little getaway for Wallace was watching the cranes outside our hotel room window!

The tropical greenhouse at the Frederik Meijer Gardens is like balm for the January soul. We could have stayed inside all day.

My dream mini greenhouse!

The only thing they would have changed about visiting the conservatory? Being allowed to explore in bare feet!

I rummaged around in a box of hand-me-downs, looking for a swim suit for Wallace just before we walked out the door to leave for Grand Rapids. When Jeff looked in my bag, he asked, “What is this smurf costume doing in here?”

At the Dennos

We spent a wonderful morning at the Dennos Museum completely drawn into the work of Cory Trepanier. Amabel said she could sit in front of just one of his paintings for days. I completely agree. The way he captures light on the landscape is breathtaking.
