The Boll Family YMCA in Downtown Detroit is beautiful. BE participates in Girls on the Run there and both kids attend the Y’s school break camps. BE was really nervous when I first signed her up for winter break camp. It took a while, but now she really loves going. BC enjoys it as well. All the caregivers do a great job, and have been very helpful. Both kids will be there again this summer, and I know they’ll have a great time. It’s another great resources for those of us raising kids in Detroit.
On the way to BE’s school every morning we drive by Campus Martius, and right now the park is beautifully decorated and lighted for the holidays. The kids have been watching as the decorations are put up and ice rink is built.
They were both begging, so we went skating the first weekend the rink officially opened. A few weeks before, the kids and I had been there for lunch at the Fountain Bistro. They split a cheeseburger and fries for only $10 total and I had a great veggie sandwich. And, the kids were so excited when the waitress brought them a whole box of crayons and told them they could color on the paper tablecloth.
The park is a wonderful for families and I’m happy that we live close enough to walk!
