This morning we headed out to Critter Barn about 20 minutes west of us. It's a working farm that allows you to come through and visit with the animals.
Grand Rapids Comic Con.
So Chris's dad came out today with his chainsaw and cut the large branch into smaller more manageable chunks. Quinn and I spent our time watching from the deck.
He did enjoy some mac and cheese once food arrived. Progress on that front! I look forward to hiding vegetables in mac and cheese in the future.

He thinks they're ok and will occasionally ask for them. I consider that a minor success.
Frederik Meijer Gardens and quite a while since I've actually been anywhere outside. I've actually only been to the sculpture park and part of the children's area, so I wanted to take Quinn and see more of the gardens.
Corinne, who works downtown there. Quinn fell asleep on the ride over there and was pretty committed to his nap, even after we'd parked.
Today was senior day (where admittance is free for the tri-county area), so there was a lot of traffic getting into the zoo.
Polk Penguin Conservation Center. I loved the old Penguinarium so I wanted to see what the new penguin exhibit looked like.
It's amazing! It was very crowded, but it was still amazing!
Amphibville. That section of the zoo today was not as popular as others (bingo was going on in the picnic area) so Quinn had the whole building to himself. It was a nice break from people for him and he really enjoyed the building. I was never very big on it myself, but its definitely going to be a place I make a point of stopping at for him since it's great for little kids.
Deer Tracks Junction is about 20 minutes north of our house. I've been seeing ads for it on a kids activity website all summer and today we decided to visit.
They have two halves to their facilities. The first half we visited has goats, pigs, bunnies and more. You can purchase cups of feed and, if so armed, will be swarmed but adorable little animals.
Quinn had fun in the bunny house. There are also parakeets flying free in the building which provides a nice atmosphere.
The other half of the place is a new area with deer, elk and more. They have safari rides at night as well.
Out front they have a large play area. There is a train and a fort with an underground tunnel system. I'm a little jealous I couldn't fit.
It's a really nice place and we'll definitely be bringing Quinn back again.
We've lived her for four years and never power washed the deck, so it needed to be done.
