We are lucky to stay with Darryl's sister and her family when we travel to Ontario. One of the conversations we had while there was about how expensive it is to travel in your own country. It is expensive for us to come and visit them, but they make it worth it. It makes us feel like celebrities they are so excited to see us. They cry when we leave. They give us there bed and bedroom to sleep in. They are excellent hosts and we do lots of fun and relaxing stuff.
Plus they have raised this amazing daughter. I admit I was a little apprehensive about how Mackenzie would take to having young kids around. I remember being a teenager and so I was a little nervous that now she is becoming a teenager that she would be spending most of the time with her friends. But she was amazing. She was so good with Lucas. One day he was so exhausted he fell asleep on the couch after dinner. They were lumps, she would read him books, they would make things with lego and run outside in the sprinkler. He misses you already.
Thank you so much for putting us up and putting up with us.
