Day 2-Spring Break

On Friday 2 April, we flew to Chicago and rented a car. We drove through Indiana and headed for a distant relative in Mendon, Michigan. We didn't even know these people but have exchanged Christmas cards for several years now. The warmth and love felt through the cards was all there in person. We were fed a great meal of homemade soup, bread, fresh fruit, and dessert. We talked about our shared family history. We learned about their maple syrup tradition. They took us on a walk around their place with the Portage River flowing through it. Beautiful people, beautiful spring weather...we are deeply grateful for their lovely hospitality.
