Dutch cousins Sander & Cory, 2007

Last year in Groningen, we met our cousin Sander at the family reunion. Last weekend he did a presentation at MIT in Boston and today, we will be welcoming him to our house in Grand Rapids. We are so excited!

Sander looks really young to be giving presentations at MIT. Have a fun visit!

That is so nice to be able to entertain an international guest in your home.

If Sander is still in hanging around in the Grand Rapids: say hello from his cousin Siert :)

Nice blog and nice pictures!

Greetings from Holland,

Hi Siert,

Good to hear from you! We just got back home from taking him to O'Hare airport in Chicago. I hope to post photos tomorrow!

Hi Jewels! Tonight, at my dad's birthday party, Sander told me everything about his trip to the US. He sounded very enthusiastic about his experienes.

Tonight I saw the pictures aswell. It seems like you are a very good photographer!

If me & my family have the opportunity we'll go to the USA. Perhaps we can combine it with our holiday. Is there some place in the Ohio region you recommend for a holiday? (we love quitness, sun & swimming)

Hi Siert - We would love to have you visit here! My parents have a nice place on Kelley's Island in Ohio (Lake Erie). You could come up to see us in Michigan also to see where the Dutch settled. You can e-mail me at juliasmilde@comcast.net
