The Land of Lost Relatives

Yesterday we spent several hours at the lake with the extended family. Among the usual holiday suspects were the surprise treat of the Missouri contingent of the McMains clan — my uncle Rick, his two daughters Audra and Liz, and one of his sons-in-law, Steve. (His son and other son-in-law couldn’t make it.) They’ve never met my wife or kids, and it’s been many years since I’ve seen any of them, so it was a great treat to get to visit with them.
