We left Michigan! But just for two days. :) Our Area Conference for employment was in Toronto, Ontario CANADA, so we had to get out the passports and leave the good old USA. Here is outside my window just before crossing the border on the way back into Michigan, the American and Canadian flags side by side.
Crossing the Canada USA Michigan border
We were surprised to learn that the chapel where we were having our conference was just across the parking lot of the Toronto Ontario Temple. This Temple was dedicated in August of 1990, making it Canada's second Temple. When Jay served his mission in Canada(in the Western part)from 1959-61, the Cardston Alberta Temple (dedicated 1923) was the only Temple here, so this was particularly exciting to him. Canada now has 7 Temples, 4 of which were dedicated during 1999-2000 and the latest one dedicated just 4 months ago in Vancouver.
And yes, we did go into the Temple for just a brief moment before the conference started!
