Remember back in grade school, when the teacher would ask you to regale the class with your oh-so-exciting summer vacation stories? Well a few weeks ago, the hubbie, Evan (now 16 months) and I headed east to Michigan for a family visit. One of the fun things we did was visit Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids. This place is amazing! First of all, it’s enormous…about 180 acres. This place is so full of life and creativity. There’s an outdoor sculpture park, which features some amazing, large scale artwork.

As well a great children’s area and garden, indoor art exhibits and greenhouses. Oh, and the cafeteria has some beautiful Chihuly sculptures. I have to admit…I was never a Chihuly fan until I saw his work up close. Kind of mind blowing actually.

What creative adventures have you guys been up to this summer??
