O Canada

Well, we're back from a whirlwind trip to Montreal! We spent one evening and one full day there. Max and I decided that the most cost-efficient way to see the city was by foot... So we walked for ten and a half hours on Friday. We maybe could have gotten away with just seven hours of walking, but we got lost twice. Here are some of the highlights of our trip:

Eating crepes. This one is made with ham, cheese, and egg. Yum!

Here we are at the top of Mount Royal, overlooking the city.
Gorgeous views! It was worth the hike and the 250 stairs!

We walked through many streets like this one. Sometimes I had to remind myself that I was still in North America!

Here I am enjoying a giant plate of "Moules frites" which is French for "mussels and fries". Kudos to Montreal for serving my fries with mayonnaise instead of ketchup (they're more French than I gave them credit for!). This picture was taken after eight hours of walking. We were sunburned and sore and oh so hungry. We walked another two hours after dinner, trying to find Old Town to buy a magnet. Both of my legs broke from all the walking, but at least we got our magnet! Proof that we were there!

You guys look great! You, especially, Princess, are gorgeous! We would love to see Montreal someday. Kudos to Max for his great, and spontaneous, idea!

We're taking Peter to a mountain lake in the Vosges to swim, for Peter and I to take our run, and,for all of us to have an ice cream dessert! I'm packing the car with beach chairs, sun umbrellas, sandwiches, and cold drinks. School is still in session, so Lake Gerardmer should be fairly deserted and, 30°C, sunny, and no mosquitoes!

Mom will have nine ladies for a Bible study/lunch tomorrow, then the both of us will have the rest of the week filled with ministry outreach.

Continue enjoying your summer. We love you both and pray for you EVERY day! Dad and Mom

I bet you're making your brother jealous with the picture of the moules/frites! Guess we'll break down and have it here at some point! Glad you both had such a great time. Love, Mom
