Detroit Riverfront

While in Michigan, recently, we took advantage of the opportunity to drive into Detroit to check out the Riverfront.  This family photo was taken outside of the GM Center, where there is a HUGE world map.  We tried to stand on Missouri, but I am sure we were off by a few hundred miles.  LOL.

Detroit River WalkThe kids really enjoyed themselves, and actually allowed me to snag a few fantastic photos with my Canon Elph!

There was an awesome Riverfront Playspace that we stopped at to play a bit.  We all had a ton of fun!

After we exhausted the kids, we headed back to the van to head home.  It was a great, and CHEAP, way to spend the day!

Of course, we couldn’t leave without a picture of the Canadian border and Caesar’s Palace.


Hubs was such a good sport!
