A big family trip.

The PNW for Charlie's Ps, and a visit with Justin
Illinois for the Ljung Family, particularly to have an April Thanksgiving, to make up for the fact that we couldn't be in Illinois for Thanksgiving in 2020. (Or 2019, thanks to the little man's birth).
Then out to Indiana to see Mike's new farmland palace.
