Fourth of July Week Fun!

Though it was a shorter week, we still packed in a lot of activities to celebrate the 4th of July! Check out the awesome flag (pictured above) we made with our hand-prints 😎

On Tuesday, we donned our best red, white and blue gear and trekked over to Central School playground to do some chalk painting. It was very festive! After, we made an impromptu trip to the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, where we met local fur trader Edward Robinson. He told us all about early fur trade in Grand Haven- so interesting!

Yesterday, we took the Harbor Transit to East End Park (or East Grand River Park, if you want to be formal) for a picnic and a playground adventure. This park is awesome! It's located at the far east end of Franklin St. Did you know that, while it's been a boat launch for many years, it did not become a park until 1994, and was chosen as a memorial to Officer Scott Flahive? It has a great playground, but our favorite part is the boardwalk that takes you out to a lookout on the river. If you're lucky, you might catch a sighting of a muskrat or even a swan! 

Stay tuned for more adventures next week, but in the meantime, you can enjoy the photos from this week:
