Miles favorite activity at Uncle Matt's... tractor rides.
Had lunch with Uncle Chic and Mary (my Mom's brother), who I haven't seen in probably 17yrs.
We would be in BIG trouble if we did not visit Mrs Smith. She was our neighbor growing up, Matt and I mowed her lawn for years, for $5. Mr Smith would go deer hunting, paint the nose red, and tell us he shot Rudolph every year.
