Spring Break, Chicago Style

An adventure to the aquarium

by Published: Mar 20, 2013

How’d you spend your spring break? In front of a TV or sleeping all day? While that is fun, you have to have a little adventure away from Big Rapids.

I went to Chicago for spring break to explore.

Can you say you’ve been in a mall three levels tall with over 300 stores? If the answer is no, you need to experience Woodfield Mall in Illinois. It’s one of the largest malls in America. The mall is very overwhelming, but yet convenient with the variety of stores. (more…)

For the Love of Photography

by Published: Jan 16, 2013

Have you ever wanted to relive your childhood, when you played in the snow all day and retreated to the warmth for a glass of hot chocolate? My brother and sister relived my childhood for me.

We’re from Ohio, so excuse my brother’s Ohio State hat, and over winter break we received about a foot of snow, which was optimal for winter fun.

The kids made snow angels, went sledding, built a snow fort and tried to build a snowman. They also tried to start a snowball fight with me while I was capturing their good times. So the next time you want to play in the snow, just act like a kid and have fun. (more…)
