In taking the kids to explore Michigan we, of course, had to stop in Detroit and show them what it was all about. D-town is kind of a sad place. You try to be hopeful.. Some of the graffiti kind of amazed me.
Astoria Pastry Shop. When Nick worked in his government job he had a conference in Detroit. Something about parks and your people or something, I'm sure. Anyway, the kids were very small but my mother-in-law graciously watched the kids and I rode a train to Detroit to join Nick. Anyway, we were able to kick around downtown for a few days and it was a lot of fun. We stumbled upon this bakery during that trip and I've been hooked ever since.
Detroit is such a neat place with such history. I loved showing kids this city and hope you'll check it out too :)
