Fredrick Meijer Butterfly House


Each spring Schaeffer Jo and I look forward to going to the Fredrick Meijer butterfly house with my parents, sister and her kids. It never disapoints, and we create treasured memories.

Before we made our way to the Gardens, my mom surprised the kids with butterfly cookies bearing each of their names (yes, Schaeffer’s ‘grandma nickname’ is Rena) from Marge’s. As an aside, if you haven’t had one of their iced sugar cookies, you haven’t lived. Go there. Now.

This year was especially fun because the weather was warm (barely!) enough to venture outside into the children’s garden–so much fun!

We especially enjoyed the ‘tree house’ which was made entirely out of sticks and different varieties of trees and the beaver damn–where lively beaver tales were shared by Schaeffer Jo.
