For those of you who haven’t heard, I broke my hand on Christmas (how fun…). Everyone has been so great though, helping me out and taking care of me. Drew has been especially great, barely letting me lift a finger. He decided to use this opportunity to break out one of his birthday gifts.
This weekend, my mom and I were given an excuse to spend the day in the city (Detroit, that is). We are always looking for fun ways to spend time together without breaking the bank. This past weekend, some close family members had to go out of town unexpectedly and had purchased show tickets that they were going to be unable to use, so they called us and asked that we put them to use. Of course we happily obliged and decided to make a full day out of it.
Having been out of town for a couple weeks (and having missed Mother’s Day), my mom and I decided that it was high time for a ‘girls day out’. So, on Friday morning, we rolled out of bed (a little later than expected), and headed downtown. The weather has been unseasonably warm here, and we decided that we couldn’t let this lovely weather go to waste and headed to the Detroit Zoo.
Things are finally starting to slow down after my cross-country trip this past week, which means that I finally have time to share some of the things that I’ve seen and done with you! Though it’s a little out of order, I thought that the best place to start would be the Grand Canyon.
One way to really get to know a city is to go see one of their sporting events. There seems to be a sense of camaraderie in a city while they are all coming together against a ‘common enemy’, and there are always more people wandering around on game days, which can help ease any anxiety about exploring alone. Also, you can usually find reasonably priced tickets to these events if you aren’t too picky about where you sit.
