Vacation Update: The Snook and I have finished the first leg of our trip! We spent the past 4.5 days with the Carbos in Petaluma, CA. It was great to get to spend some time with my nephew Penn and my niece Indie. Our goodbyes today were teary. Now we find ourselves halfway across the country in Chicago, bedding down for the night before driving to Indiana tomorrow. It’s hot here. It will be good to see the rest of my family.
