New Additions

Last Friday we met Holly, born to nephew Matthew and wife Michelle on the 3rd of June. She is a real cuty and her sister Ella is so good with her. Today Caitlyn came to meet the new puppy, Charlie, addition to Karen & Rick's family. She just giggled as she had never really held a puppy.
