A few weeks ago Megan got a real treat.  We went down to Detroit to watch "Frozen On Ice."  Megan was in heaven.  All the characters were there singing all her favorite songs.  She loved it.

Butterflies In Bloom

"Butterflies In Bloom" is going on now at Dow Gardens.  The kids haven't done this since 2011, so they had a blast doing it again.  Every year the nursery at Dow Gardens hatches and releases various breeds of butterflies.  It's always popular with the kids.

Detroit Pistons

A few weeks ago we got to go to a Detroit Pistons game.  It was Ben's prize for being the "top popper" in his Cub Scout troop.  We got to watch the pre game warmups, we got free tickets to the game, and Ben even got his name up on the video board.  He had a blast.
