Kalle and Aila Visit in 2003 -- Post 385 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

The parents of Mia, one of our 1994 Exchange girls, visited us in May 2003.  Kalle and Aila traveled from Tornio, Finland to San Diego, and we then visited Victorville (to see our daughter Tami), Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and Lake Havasu in Arizona.   We had a wonderful time sharing our lives together, sightseeing, and took a few good photographs.

1)  This the four of us in our family room before our travel adventure:

2)  At the Grand Canyon, here is Kalle and I resting after walking around the rim:

3)  Randy at the Hermit's Rest area:

4)  Kalle and Aila on the canyon rim:

5)  We took the train into the Grand Canyon from a town outside the National Park - here are Aila, Linda and Kalle posing in front of the train:

6)  Linda and Randy with a stuffed buffalo in one of the nearby towns.  Big guy, sharp horns!

We enjoyed the two weeks we had with Aila and Kalle - they are really happy and friendly people.  They learned a lot about United States history, geography and politics on this trip.
