Michigan Trip

Last week, we went to Michigan for my Grandma Eleanor's memorial service. Each day I aspire to be like my grandma. She was a woman of quiet faith, a wife and mother and always took time to listen. My scanner is broken so I can't add any picture of her right now, but I will as soon as I can.

The kids and I stayed with my cousin Rick and his family (thank you for your hospitality Barber family). We spent a day at the zoo. It was a perfect day for the zoo with the temps in the high 80's.

Here are a few pictures from our trip.
