An account of the Swope family's travels through life and Earle's observations following a series of unforeseen events. Earle (Dad) experienced a near death experience and subsequent PTSD in 2008. In 2013 their 3rd child Gabriel was born with HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome) which means no left ventricle and 3 open heart surgeries. In spite of or because of, we realize how blessed and rich are our lives and how wonderful this human experience.

Chihuly at Meijer Gardens
Dale Chihuly spent 3 years developing 15 different site specific works integrated into Meijer Gardens for their 15th anniversary.
8'-9' tall glass cylindrical "reeds" mixed in with the cattails.
Lime Crystal Tower, 25 feet tall, Beth thought it looked like giant rock candy. The scale he works in is incredible.
