It's always fun to have company - especially when it's your own family! Thank you, Nathan, Kristy, Christian, Michael, Finn, and Esplan for coming out to see us. We had a great time showing you around. Sorry we couldn't tell you what a Hoosier is. No one really seems to know! Haha. Anyway, your visit was a blessing to Grandma and Grandpa.

Sporting their Indiana shirts - Yes, there is one Michigan one in there,too.

Our day reliving the past - in Shipshewana.

After our movie (Planes, Fire and Rescue) the grandkids just had to eat at Steak 'n Shake. After all, it's one of the Elders favorite places!!!

 Thanks to the Stanleys, we enjoyed a fabulous afternoon and evening at Clear Lake.

District Meeting

Christian and Michael - future missionaries

Those four days went way too fast!

July 4th

 We enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July with the Angola Branch. President Robison grilled up some great hamburgers and hotdogs. The sisters provided some amazing side dishes. A good time was had by all.
