What's Happening? May 6-13

By Sarah Boucher, Publisher Macaroni Kid Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Muskegon May 6, 2020


This week I'm thankful for sunshine and the opportunity to get outside.  Even when I'm in that "blah" mood, it's nothing a bit of fresh air can't fix!  We enjoyed exploring Grand Ravines North Park and seeing the eagle's nest.  The kids even took off their socks and shoes and dipped their toes in one of the little streams.  We have been spending a lot of time in our yard as well.  The kids new favorite game is bean bag toss (aka cornhole).  They are getting good, but I'm still the reining champion! They have now taken to teaming up to try and beat me!  I'm sure that my defeat is not far off!  Our goal is to spend some time outside every day, rain or shine, as it really does wonders for our body and mind.  I challenge you to get outside and breathe in the fresh air every day.  Then let us know your favorite places to explore and things to do outside!


Phew!  Doesn't it feel good to know we're all in this together?  Here are some articles to check out to find your family fun at home:
