2012 West Michigan Indoor Play Guide

West mi indoor play guide

I love the feel of Autumn in the air, but I also know that means rainy days and that snow is right around the corner.  To keep myself and my kids sane, we make sure to get out of the house at least a few times a week.  Here’s some places that we’ll be headed when the weather is not so nice.

Check over our list and let us know if you have any other foul-weather hangouts.
