When we got married, one of our gifts was a membership to Frederick Meijer Gardens. We live about 15 minutes away, so that membership got lots of use. When that expired we started to think about what else we could get a membership to. As it was winter, we were thinking indoors.
Since I love history, my first choice was the museum, which we went with. It, too, has already gotten lots of use. We are about 5 minutes away from out local public museum, so every once in a while we go and hang out there.
I am currently working a long stretch of days at work, so after I got done Saturday (I worked the early shift, 3:30-11:15) we headed out to the museum. I needed to relax and unwind after a crazy stressful day.
This whale skeleton hangs over the main walkway. He is huge!
We enjoyed a cup of coffee, watched a planetarium show and wandered around my favorite places. After all that we had to take a ride on the carousel!
Andrew was in the horse riding spirit. He plans on wearing cowboy boots and hat next time to pull it all together.
What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
