Anniversary

Danielle and I celebrated our first anniversary this weekend. Among other reasons, I had a big job interview to prepare for, so we stuck around town instead of traveling to Lake Michigan. We'll probably spend this weekend at her family's cabin.

We went to Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, a unique and very impressive place in Grand Rapids where we haven't actually been. They had fantastic collections of weird carnivorous plants, vast garden landscapes, and cool galleries of sculptures, including this DaVinci Horse.
 


For dinner, we ate at Cygnus 27 on the 27th (get it?) floor of the Amway Grand. Apparently it's been around for a while but was recently renovated on the interior. It's a very nice looking place. We sat right about where this picture was taken from, but looking out over the city instead of into the restaurant.


We exchanged gifts and sampled our wedding cake. I don't really understand this tradition but I understand that it is one. Anyway, it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It helps that it was so good in the first place.
