Odom's Visit

Last week Father and Mother Odom made a visit to the great white north. It was great to get to see them and to have a bit of a mental break from Lent. One of our outings was to the early 19th c. village of Harmony, PA that was settled by German religious separatists. Once they decided that celibacy was the way to go, they died out. Go figure. They did leave behind some beautiful old buildings though:

And sausage-making equipment:

And beer-making equipment (note that I got shots of the most important things):

A new niece

Vi har fått ännu ett syskonbarn. Den 30 mars fick min andra syster Mikaela en dotter. Hon föddes med akut kejsarsnitt, men både mor och dotter mår bra.

More babies.... My other sister Mikaela gave birth to a daughter on March 30th. She was born by c-section, but both mother and baby are doing good. We are looking forward to meeting her in the summer.
