Jacob and Tiffany Peugh and their children Tyler, Collin, Kenden, and Jaidyn, and Chip and I visited Liz Steinsiek and her children, Michael and Tonja and their families on Thursday evening. Michael, Tracy, Jordyn, Madison, and Lani were visiting from Schertz (near San Antonio) and Will, Tonja, Gabriel, and Kristina were in from Chicago.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal of smoked brisket and all the trimmings, prepared by Will and Tonja. Guests brought side dishes and desserts to share. Following the meal, we had a good time visiting and playing games.
