Grand Rapids, Michigan

The next day of our Michigan sojourn was spent in Grand Rapids. The only thing I knew about the city before visiting was that my Mom went to college there. We ended up driving by the school at one point.

We started our day by walking around the extensive Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. I loved the juxtaposition of natural, plant life with man-made sculptures. There were so many amazing pieces throughout the gardens!

This sculpture is by Kiki Smith. The name immediately sounded familiar and it's because one of her pieces, Wolf Girl, was shown in a Gilmore Girls episode. I also featured Wolf Girl at my Gilmore Girls themed birthday party.
After the Gardens, we headed to Robinette's Apple Haus for lunch. Walking in, it smelled amazing from all the apple cider donuts and other goodies. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed sitting outside at one of their picnic tables and did some people-watching. Later my mom was telling us she would go here for lunch while in college.
