... our friend who is allergic.

After the test and a medieval conference meeting Emily, Jacob, and I went to a restaurant in town and sat outside in the beer garden since it was such a beautiful day and snacked.

... a hill to end all hills. Every time we thought we saw the top, it just kept going. And when we finally got there, the view wasn't even that great (see pic).
