We also got to go to Grand Rapids to visit people and for me to do some research, and we also had a few days of rest with friends at St. Gregory's Monastery (Three Rivers, MI). And everywhere we went, we seemed to manage to buy books!
But the highlight was still family, as you can see by these pictures taken by Janice and Matthijs:

As much as it was great to visit, it is also nice to come back home to normal life in Amsterdam - which looks like this a lot of the time....
