Yesterday, for Father's Day, Matt and I took the kids to Detroit for a festival. We moved to Michigan five years ago and we've never been down to Detroit RiverDays. We've been to Detroit for sports games, and a few theater shows and such, but never for a festival. We were pleasantly surprised. The Tall Ships were there, which is something we've never seen before.
Payton loved it, despite his skinned knee.
His favorite parts were playing in the water fountains...
and seeing how close we live to Canada. He kept calling it China. So cute.
Maxwell said his favorite parts were the dog we met named "Max" and seeing the "really big boats". Both of those are typical Max.
Matt and I enjoyed being on the river and being together as a family. It was not a planned adventure and only happened because Matt's work let him go early yesterday. Other than the price of some of the activities, there was no cost. We stuck to the free stuff and really enjoyed ourselves and the little family.
We truly do live in a beautiful and underestimated area. It's a shame people, including me, don't see what Detroit has to offer. Now that we've been, I think we'll be more inclined to head down for events.
