We found this old movie poster the other day.
We found this surprise on my desk one morning.
It did kind of look like a hamburger. But it was chocolate cookies from some of our favorite sisters!
It was MLC again this week. So fun to see the missionaries. We'll be saying good bye to several (6) of these elders soon.
When we went to Eikaiwa, we noticed that Elder M was favoring his arm. He had taken a little fall off his bike. Luckily, we have a couple of nurses that were happy to help out. They made a sling for his arm out of saran wrap from the kitchen! The x-rays showed a potential break, but they just told him to come back in a couple weeks for a recheck. It still looked swollen today, so....
We didn't go out to Kakuda this week. The factory was closed for a few days. We went out and found a bakery and a pizza parlor that were recommended to us. The goodies were packaged up so pretty.
And, they even tasted as good as they look. A fruit tart and apple pie. There's even a little ice pack to keep it cold.
Saturday, we went into Sendai to search out some restaurants we'd heard about. We saw all these people lined up at the mall.
Probably like a thousand people. The security guards had signs to tell how long of a wait it was going to be. (90 min, 60 min, 30 min) (30 minutes per section and we saw at least 5 groups) So, we asked the girl at McDonald's what was the big attraction. She said it was for "Gift Cards". Whatever!
This little hamburger joint is on a lot of the travel brochures we see
It's located down a little side street not far from the main part of the city.
Who knew they had a Casa Del Sol here?
And a Pepe Gonzales Restaurant with Japanese mariachis?? We may have to come back when they're actually open.
This is a Teddy's Hamburger Place
And Billy's New York Deli. (Well, that's its name anyway.) Tasted pretty good. And we found a muffin shop close to the Kamisugi chapel.
We walked by a school that had these cute portable planters. You can fold down the top to store during the winter.
So, it was a little bit warm to be hiking all over the city, but it was a pretty nice day.
Sunday was our ward conference.
They had a lunch afterwards before the meetings with the stake leaders.
We got to meet our new little friend Ryo
And see his big sister again! She was giving everyone a high five.
Our first peaches (mo mos) of the season. Very juicy!
We had a couple of birthdays this week. These photos are from the stake trek last summer.
Jacob Alan Duron turned sweet 16 (!)
And here is our favorite Peruvian DIL, Sandy with our William
This is a photo of my grandmother, Grace Hadfield and her 10 children. My mother is the pretty girl in the back. The William and Grace Hadfield reunion was held this weekend in Logan.
Our Seth was our representative for our family. Here he is with my sister Karine and Gordon and their granddaughter, Lauren.
Families are Forever!
