ADD A MEMORY

Fond memories of spending summer vacations as a kid with Leland, Kevin, and Collin at their farm. Laddie, playing cars in the sand beside the house, jumping off the hayloft in the barn, tobogganing in the dugout in the winter, getting eggs from the chicken coop, taking Aunt Margies' lunch out to Uncle Al harvesting in the field, eating porridge for breakfast, driving Uncle Al's car (while under age), with Leland in the summer fallow was especially fun. Great times - these memories will never fade.
