The MacDonalds stop by en route to France

The MacDonald family stopped in Grand Rapids for a couple of days last month. They left Hawaii and are making their way to Lille, France where they'll spend the next couple of years or so. And, after a couple of nights here the four of them headed off for stops in Virginia, Connecticut and Maine to see more family and friends before flying to Paris and then a train to Lille where they expect to arrive, well, right about now I suppose.

The kids were all in fine form and it was grand to see them all. It's been far too long since we've all been together let along spending quality time hanging out. And given this was Michigan with winter and all, hanging out is pretty much what we did. But it was really important for those kids to see gram and great-gram -- and for her to spend time with them, too, of course. Mission accomplished.

Oh, and no need to ask -- we are planning on a stop in Lille later this fall when the two of us head back to France. More about that later.
