TRADITIONS AROUND THE WORLD - FREDERIK MEIJER GARDENS & SCULPTURE PARK :/// Grand Rapids, Michigan
In efforts to make the most of the holiday season with the boys we embarked on an adventure to Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan to check out their winter exhibition “Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World.” We were extra lucky because we had a great tour guide…my Nana!
It was neat to check out their interactive table full of toys and holiday traditions from around the world. We checked out tons of beautifully decorated trees that represented countries from all over the globe. Chris became nostalgic and a bit homesick when we found the “England tree” with antique Christmas cards, mistletoe and crackers.
It was difficult to ask Jonah not to touch the ornaments. They were shiny, beautiful and enticing! Luckily there was a hands on play room, where we spent a lot of time in to let the boys run around…and touch stuff. In the play room they had a green screen! We took lots of pictures and videos and had tons of fun editing goofy stuff in the background of our shots.
We enjoyed a tropical conservatory, where pretty lights shined in a beautiful garden. Our favorite part- “The companion Railway Garden exhibition” a horticultural display that featured a unique garden, miniature buildings made from natural materials, and model trains! Jonah had a story for each building.
Thank you for watching! Please subscribe so we can adventure together each week!

Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Took a few days off from working on the Pontiac. Went to Grand Rapids, Michigan to the Meijer Gardens... owned but the same family that owns the stores also... and the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. What a fun weekend. Everyone should go to both places. The car museum is 55 miles south of the gardens... but is awesome. My next video will show the cars. It's a long video, but shows lots of great stuff, including the engines.

Grand Rapids is a Michigan city on the Grand River, east of Lake Michigan. On the outskirts, the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park has a tropical conservatory and multiple gardens. Its art collection includes works by Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore and Ai Weiwei. Downtown, the Grand Rapids Art Museum spotlights Michigan artists in its rotating shows. Grand Rapids is known for many breweries dotted around town.
A historic furniture-manufacturing center, Grand Rapids is home to five of the world's leading office furniture companies, and is nicknamed Furniture City. Its more common modern nickname of River City refers to the landmark river for which it was named. The city and surrounding communities are economically diverse, based in the health care, information technology, automotive, aviation, and consumer goods manufacturing industries, among others. Grand Rapids is the childhood home of U.S. President Gerald Ford, who is buried with his wife Betty on the grounds of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in the city. The city's main airport is also named after him.
Grand Rapids is the home of John Ball Zoological Garden, Belknap Hill, and the Gerald R. Ford Museum. He and former First Lady Betty Ford were buried on the site. Significant buildings in the downtown include the DeVos Place Convention Center, Van Andel Arena, the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, and the JW Marriott Hotel. The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts is located downtown, and houses art exhibits, a movie theater, and the urban clay studio. Along the Grand River are reconstructed earthwork burial mounds, which were constructed by the prehistoric Hopewell tribe; a fish ladder, and a riverwalk.
Grand Rapids is home to the Van Andel Museum Center. Founded in 1854, it is among the oldest history museums in the United States. The museum's sites currently include its main building, constructed in 1994 on the west bank of the Grand River (home to the Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium); the Voigt House Victorian Museum, and the City Archives and Records Center. The latter held the museum and planetarium prior to 1994. Since the late 20th century, the museum has hosted notable exhibitions, including one on the Dead Sea Scrolls, and The Quest for Immortality: the Treasures of Ancient Egypt. A non-profit institution, it is owned and managed by the Public Museum of Grand Rapids Foundation.
Heritage Hill, a neighborhood directly east of downtown, is one of the largest urban historic districts in the country. The first neighborhood of Grand Rapids, its 1,300 homes date from 1848 and represent more than 60 architectural styles. Of particular significance is the Meyer May House, a Prairie-style home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1908. It was commissioned by local merchant Meyer May, who operated a men's clothing store (May's of Michigan).
The house is now owned and operated by Steelcase Corporation. Steelcase manufactured the furniture for the Johnson Wax Building in Racine, Wisconsin, which was also designed by Wright and is recognized as a landmark building. Because of those ties, Steelcase purchased and restored the property in the 1980s. The restoration has been heralded as one of the most accurate and complete of any Wright restoration. The home is used by Steelcase for special events and is open to the public for tours.
Grand Rapids is home to many theaters and stages, including the newly reconstructed Civic Theatre (also known as the Meijer Majestic), the city's largest theater; DeVos Hall, and the convertible Van Andel Arena. In Grand Rapids Township, the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park combine 125 acres (1 km2) of world-class botanical gardens and artwork from such American sculptors as Mark di Suvero and Alexander Calder, and French artists Edgar Degas and Auguste Rodin. The Gardens' amphitheater plays host to numerous concerts each summer, featuring such acts as Jonny Lang, The Pointer Sisters, Lyle Lovett, Cowboy Junkies, and B.B. King.
