23 May 2017
Today the kids and I went and took the free tour of the Renaissance Center downtown. It was okay, but I was really looking forward to getting to go up to the top and look out, and turns out that it's closed for construction. Boo. We did get to see a cool glass sculpture called 'Borealis' and a neato model of downtown Detroit that we wanted to spend more time looking at than we got to. Fortunately, there was also a giant granite map of the world outside with key cities marked that was fun to run around on, followed by a picnic lunch on the river walk, and then a splashpad that I didn't know about. So overall a successful trip!
Tonight was the last OHMI concert for Rose Pink. Although Mr. Brown and I have been frustrated many times by how OHMI is organized, there is no doubt that Rose Pink and Nut Brown have both benefited from and enjoyed the music lessons they've received there, and we'll miss it for sure when we move. Fortunately my parents agreed to stay to the end of the concert and bring Rose Pink and Nut Brown home afterward, which will fulfill a wish of Rose Pink's. I just put Rosebud and Bobo in bed - they are exhausted after today.
