An adventure to the aquarium
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.

To help keep all participants warm, there was a fire and complimentary hot chocolate. For a little fun, people could roast marshmallows for some s’mores. They also made a Harlem Shake video during the event, so make sure to look out for that. (more…)

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.
