Gerald Ford Museum and the lovely Lake Michigan

Yesterday, we toured the Gerald Ford Museum in downtown Grand Rapids.  It was the first Presidential Museum I've ever been to.  The building boasts some great exhibits, including a special exhibit about Betty Ford, which showcases her clothes and family pictures and traditions inside the White House.  There is also a replica of the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room.

Troy Wise - This was in the museum too!
Today was another beautiful sunny day, so we packed a picnic and went to explore Lake Michigan - only 30 minutes away.  The boys brought their skimboards, a raft, and plenty of sunscreen.

Nice form
Sharing the raft
Perhaps a perch?

This could be my boat...if I had lots of money.

We'll be sad to leave Michigan, but I am looking forward to exploring St. Louis and other parts of the midwest.  Time to load up on tuna, jelly, turkey, and desserts for camping!
