Just back from a two-week trip visiting the German side of the family, John, Calista, Cally and Sylvia came down from Maryland to report on their travels and to celebrate John and Calista’s double birthday (born on the same day in the same year, but on two different continents).  Cally and Sylvia helped Monika make a Black Forest Cherry Cake (recipe from our local friend Todd).  A great visit!
