We have been busy with our usual menu of soccer and marching band practices but we have also had a wonderful visit from some of our extended Australian family. A cousin who I hadn't seen since I was 18 who had been vacationing in South America for the last 3 months came to stay. We had an absolute blast with her and her partner. We gave them the full American treatment. Beer and a hotdog at a baseball game. An afternoon at the winery sampling local wine. A day on the lake enjoying some stand-up paddle boarding. And of course the good ol' reliable neighborhood BBQ.
