What’s Up Wednesday: Henry Ford Museum

So anyone that knows us knows we have spent (some)  time at the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village in the last three years of Lalo’s life! It is always fun for me to take Lalo there because I grew up going there with my grandparents and have so many memories there so it is fun to see Lalo making his own memories! 🙂

 

This last time we went we took our friends Meg, Sophie and Eli and we had a blast!  Lalo was the perfect tour guide from his favorite Steam Engines to the cars and lastly the doll houses!  The museum was a hit and we can’t wait to start exploring the village next week! Hope you enjoy our trip summary!

until next week!

run often, smile more!
