Magic memories

Somewhere deep inside of me, lurking behind my laziness, is a mind blowing blog describing everything I’ve been up to while my sister and niece have been out here on a visit from Melbourne, Australia.  Laziness is up 10 – 0, so all you’re getting is a bunch of pics.  If inspiration scores a point here or there, I may throw in a caption or two.
