Ten short days of August, 2008
with Mireille and Savannah in Chicago and South Bend

After seeing off Chris and Olivia on their trip back to Austin, Mireille and Savannah spent 10 days with us before going on to Washington DC with TMore and family for Kylah and John's Vietnamese wedding.

Here are eighteen pictures, (beginning with the Chicago peanut portrait of all of us), followed by a few others of a spectacular South Bend fire which happened one morning, about half-a-mile from our house.
