Over the last four years I have taken well over 10,000 photos. I have many favorites, but worked hard to very subjectively narrow this post to 10. The captions for each picture will give you the context, the month and year, and why that particular shot is one of my favorites. I couldn’t rank them, so I decided to show them in chronological order. I hope you enjoy both the photos and the back stories.

We had a combined Christmas and Thanksgiving day (Thanksmas) with our two oldest and their families that started at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids. We toured the conservatory gardens and admired the Christmas trees that were decorated in the manner of countries around the world. We had a picnic style lunch at the Gardens, viewed an indoor statue display, and then headed to our middle son’s house where we hung out and enjoyed a grilled-in-the-snow pork tenderloin. Here are a few shots from the Meijer Gardens.
