I swear my friends and I used to do this same shit as teens!!! Meijer is da SHIZNIT!!
this is winter in GR!
oh… and of course in honor of summer fun… Grand Haven!
I could not imagine growing up any place else. As a kid in the 80’s and a teen in the 90’s there really wasn’t much to do here so I thought it was boring. I had dreams of Broadway and stardom so I was ready to bolt at a young age and move to NYC or LA. I had no appreciation for the city or Michigan. As I grew and matured that changed, and so did my lovely city. It has grown leaps and bounds and our downtown went from being dormant to vibrant, alive and fun. I am so glad to be from Grand Rapids, and I would not change it for the world.
