Mom and Dad in Niger!

 

My mom and dad got here on Josh’s birthday so we went to an Indian restaurant to celebrate.

At Indian restaurant for Josh’s birthday
Very spicy food! Josh wouldn’t have it any other way.
We went to an artisan village about 15 minutes away from our house.

We stopped by the hospital to see Josh. These kids come visit Josh in his office every day.

Sunday morning, on our way to church.

The kids loved mom!

Sunday afternoon, we went to a restaurant that has a nice pool. As long as you order food, you can swim!

Of course, giraffes on the label!

Went to the market to buy fruit and vegetables, and stopped at the shoe repair man.

Mom's sandal strap broke in the middle of the market. A little boy saw us trying to figure out what to do and directed us to a shoe repair man in his little stall in the market. While he was fixing her shoe, he gave her a little pallete to rest her foot on. 🙂

  1. It look like you’re having so much fun! I love all the pictures!

    • It is so cool to show my parents all the places and things we’ve been experiencing for the last month and a half… and seeing their reactions to it all! I’ll post more pictures soon. 🙂
