villinng.jpg: A visit with Fred overlapped my sister's visit for a day. They went canoeing with my mom, and when they came back I joined them for a bite at Village Inn. Jeaux came to the dinner too.
villinnf.jpg: Everyone got their food and chowed down.
And unfortunately they had to go back to Japan shortly after that, though I did get to hang with them one more time at my mom's over pizza and pictures and fun stuff. It was a great visit!
