Spent my last day of spring break making the two-hour trek to Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan to see the butterfly exhibit, which is only there for two months.
The indoor exhibit is a photographer's dream. There are more than 6,000 butterflies from all over the world. The display of exotic flowers is beautiful.
Outdoors you can walk through many different gardens, which were blooming with springtime flowers.
There are waterplay areas for dads and other children.
There are many sculptures adorning the grounds. The Chihuly Exhibit will be arriving soon.
Then we took a side trip to Holland and had lunch at the 8th Street Grille. Gary had pot roast, which looked delectable. I had the 1/2 salad and 1/2 sandwich combo, which was actually huge.
Spotted this ice cream shop on the way home.
