I made a quick trip to Grand Rapids to take in the sites of Art Prize. I enjoyed the event so much whileliving in Grand Rapids for the last 2 years, that I had to come back and see what the artist would come up with this year. The boys and I joined the Grkids.com team on the Art Prize trolley that made strategic stops all over the downtown .…Continue

I love when plans work out for a spontaneous adventure. My friend was already coming to town, so I just offered her the "choose your own adventure" option for her visit. Try the luge, cross country skiing or attend an ice sculpture festival. I was sooo excited that she wanted to try the luge too.

Our local gym also has a rock wall. I only go on it every once in a while when my kids REALLY beg me. Why? Because it's located…Continue

I have always had some kind of bucket list growing up. Not necessarily always written down but it seems the more I try something outside my normal comfort zone the more I want to add something new to my "to do" adventure list. So far one my favorite bucket list items was trying the trapeze. We had noticed a trapeze rig at one of the popular tourist spots in town. After I saw it I knew I had to try it.
Conveniently, a friend of mine and I wanted to do something adventurous for our…Continue
