Mortal Kombat, Homemade Boba, and Our Journey With Fostering and Adoption

Grab an Old Fashioned (or whatever you want to drink), and join us for Episode 7! We talk about Mortal Kombat (the video game AND the movie), family hangouts where everyone's fully vaccinated, our journey with fostering and adopting our son, Larissa's adventures in making boba, and Steve's growing love of golf.

What are we drinking?
