Trip to Michigan

We spent five days in Michigan visiting Tim's sisters and parents. The kids enjoyed fishing, bouncy castles, swimmiing and jumping on grandpa Phillips' trampoline while Diana took us shopping.

For the fourth of July Weekend we spent two days at Niagara Falls. We walked across the bridge, had one foot in the US and one foot in Canada and enjoyed a ride on the maid of the mist. We ate at the rainforest cafe and visited with Andrew and Nikki Gray and their three children. The Grays are raising support to come to Sahel to take our place while we are on home assignment next year. It was great to touch base with them and to meet them. They are a wonderful family and we expect they will do a fine job next year.

We took the kids down town Toronto by subway on Canada day. The MacLeod cousins came too. First they went up the CN tower, ate cotton candy and icecream then they rode a mini train and capped the day off with fireworks at the church.
