Chalk Flood

Over the weekend of April 17th the weather was wonderful. Matt and I could not stay inside ... we did some yard work, we took some old computers down to the Zoo to be recycled, we took a drive in the country, we had dinner outside on the patio and we attended the Grand Rapids Chalk Flood. What is the chalk flood you ask? Well it was a massive public art project, in which thousands of participants used 30,000 multicolored sidewalk chalk sticks to draw all over several blocks of the city’s downtown. We didn't spend too much time on our own drawing, but we made a good effort with our names. After we finished our work of art we took some time to walk around, some of the drawings were amazing; I should have taken more pictures.
