This weekend I am enjoying all things Grand Rapids has to offer! This weekend is the Michigan Early Childhood Conference where preschool teachers come from all of the state come to share ideas for the classroom. This is always one of my favorite weekends of the year!
This photo was taken on a walkway above the Grand River behind the Amway Grand Hotel. I think the black and white really emphasizes all the lines in the walkway and the hand rail.
My most recent vacation was a weekend trip to Chicago after New Years. It was a busy, museum-filled trip with my favorite being a traveling Disney Archives Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. We got the CityPass for this trip and it really paid off! It didn’t make much of a difference at the SkyDeck or The Field Museum (although we did arrive at the Field in the afternoon when there was no line at all) but it really paid off at the Shedd Aquarium where the line was down the steps and people were waiting out in the open with slush falling from the sky. If you are planning on visiting Chicago and you want to see the sights without worrying about arriving early to avoid lines, the CityPass is definitely worth it!

This photo was taken near dusk on the steps of the Field Museum looking out at the city. I really like how the statue stands taller than the skyscrapers in the distance.
Today is the big day for college basketball fans, The Final Four. To celebrate The Spartan’s underdog run, I’ll share with you a photo from The Michigan State University Campus. The Demmer Family Hall of History is located in the Scandalaris Football Center and celebrates memorable moments in Spartan Football History. On my visit to the Hall, I enjoyed seeing the Paul Bunyon trophy and the mural of the 2013 team.
