Sunday Michael welcomed two little guys who were going to spend a couple days with us while dad and mom went on an anniversary getaway.

Mike discovered a patch of ripe wild black raspberries in our woods, so we had a berry-picking date this afternoon!
I need to wrap this up because the Argentina/Chile game is on--the finals of the Copa América Centenario!!! Go Messi!!!
