The Motor City





And yet the Cope family discovers another beautiful place. The Detroit metro area, of all places. We finally got a chance to visit the Carters, and Emily, their sweet baby.

We started off Saturday by hearing a loud "boom" from their neighbors cannon. Evidently each year at Labor Day, their neighbor feeds the neighborhood with pancakes and the fixins. What a great culdesac to live in. We also visited an orchard, and a beautiful park complete with sandy beaches (off of 26 Mile Road), and drove approximately 14 hours to church on Sunday (just kidding).

All in all, we really enjoyed just hanging out with J & A. Benny loved the doggy door, and got in trouble several times for climbing in/out of the house. I also squeezed in a great book about when Scott O'Grady got shot down over Bosnia. Right now I am trying to finish The Good Life (Charles Colson). So far I recommend it.

You picked the right time of the year to go north. It is amazing how beautiful Michigan is in the summertime.

Let me get this straight...

You went to Detroit, heard a "boom", and didn't get shot?!?

Does not compute...
