This weekend Sarge and I had to go to Grand Rapids to attend a yellow ribbon event for his unit.
We stayed at the Amway Grand.
The view from our 9th floor room when we checked in
Lunch at the event
For dinner we went to a local Tapas bar
Where sarge had his first Scrumpy since coming home
and I had one too (this is what helped me get through the evening)
Crappy photo of us, but the only one I have of the night
Walking back to the hotel I saw one building reflecting off another. Thought it was cool.
After dinner drink were had and then we headed back to the hotel room.
This was the "after sunset" view
Then up very early on Sunday
We decided to get breakfast on our own. I am very happy we did as this was the best coffee of the weekend.
Sarge and I needed it!!
This was our view at the breakfast table
We walked off breakfast on the riverwalk before heading back to the conference.
After the Yellow Ribbon Event, we went across the river
to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.
The first lady past away last week and the books were still out for signatures. We signed and then went out to the final resting place.
Sarge liked this eagle that is outside the museum.
The calm was only interrupted by the fountain which gave the place both a peaceful feeling and soothing noise.
