Meijer Gardens

Today we ventured out to Meijer Gardens - a botanical garden and sculpture park that we have heard so much about since moving here almost a year ago but have not yet checked out. Matt and I had the same reaction - why did we not visit this sooner?! It definitely lives up to its reputation! The gardens are beautiful and there is plenty for the kids to see and do. Today was an especially warm day for April and the kids had a blast playing in the little fountains and with the boats (there is a water-model of the Great Lakes for the kids to float boats in). A fun time was had by all and we look forward to going back soon!

Addison was geared up on the way with a real flower in her hair from home

The "big kids" were a little excited to be there

Addison had more fun trying to wash her hair in "Lake Erie" - it's cleaner than the real thing

Group pictures aren't so easy anymore
