We wanted to escape the DC summer heat so we decided to spend a week in Michigan. Jeremy used to visit Michigan on his way home from summer camp so he was excited to plan this trip. First stop Grand Rapids. We went to a beautiful sculpture garden with a Japanese garden. They also had a section for kids which we look forward sharing with a child. We ended the day with a historical walk in the city. The owner of last house in the tour was outside and he said we should look at the garden out back.
