We took the boys to Meijer Gardens on Monday in an attempt to help them forget that the counselors were gone. First thing Friday morning, Jack came into our room crying because the counselors were leaving and he didn't want them to go home. Which, of course, made me want to cry.
It was a really good summer.
Anyway, we were trying to come up with something fun and new to do on Monday in an attempt to ease them into life without 70+ people to dote on them at all times. We have a zoo membership and have been there quite a few times already, so we opted for Frederik Meijer Gardens because we had never been there before.
We really enjoyed it! There was enough to do, without being overwhelming. We didn't get to everything, so we'd like to go back. It was a little pricey, so we'll likely wait until next summer for a return visit.
I wish I had more pictures of the flowers and sculptures, but I ended up with plenty of the boys!
