The last beach I was on was Paradise Beach on Santorini in Greece. If you’ve been following my blogs, you know that was in October of 2006. Since it is now mid-June of 2007, I decided it was about time to hit the beach once more. On Saturday my friend Lindsey’s younger brother, Jalen, (you might remember them from the extreme croquet entry) had a baseball tournament in Holland, MI. Because Ann Arbor, where their family lives, is about three hours from Holland, and Jalen’s first game was at 8 a.m., Lindsey’s family stayed in Grand Rapids with her grandparents on Friday night.

Festival of the Arts
Every June Grand Rapids celebrates the beginning of summer and the cultural diversity within the city with a Festival of the Arts. My friend Emma and I decided to check it out last weekend, and we definitely liked what we saw. There is so much to see and do at the Festival. To begin with there are 19 different food vendors, and none of them are selling the same things. There are Thai, Chinese, Lebanese, Greek, Dutch, and American foods (and I know there were others too, but I can’t remember them all).
