From Liechtenstein to Eagan

My penpal since high school, Monica Grigis, and her husband, Peter, arrived from the Principality of Liechtenstein via California on Tuesday. Yesterday, we drove around Eagan and attended the Eagan Rotary lunch. Our family visited them for a week in Liechtenstein in August 2012!
