Christmas Date

Our evenings before, on, and after Christmas are mostly spent at parties with family and friends.  This year was no different, except that we had one night with no plans - the Friday before Christmas.  We decided to plan a relaxing night out together in the midst of the busyness of the season.  

We spent the evening in Grand Rapids - starting with dinner at a new restaurant to us - The Green Well.  It was excellent...seriously...go there!

Our next stop was Frederick Meijer Gardens.  They have a Christmas tree exhibit displaying trees from around the world. The middle picture on the left is a representation of an African Christmas tree.  They also had a cool train exhibit and thousands of Christmas lights outside to see.

For our last stop we planned to go downtown to Rosa Parks Circle to ice skate, but the wait was way too long for skates.  We decided to just watch the skaters for a bit and then get some dessert...not a bad 2nd choice!  Plus, while we were there it started snowing!
