We had a great time with the four of them and my sister -- take-out dinner from a favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant, an early birthday party for a little miss who will be 8 years old in a few days, and lots of good conversation.

They headed home very early this morning -- it's better if possible to drive through the desert in the fairly cool morning hours.
Our house is very, very quiet without them.
The dog-girls are catching up on the sleep they missed the last couple of days!
