They arrived on Sat and we immediately met them over at our mutual friends Karen & Marty's home for lunch and a visit with Karen & Marty. The weather was cool and rainy so we didn't spend any time on the porch. That evening we had cocktails at home and then went to dinner at 1776 Steakhouse. Our steaks were fantastic (even coming from me who really isn't a steak fan) and so was the banana coconut cream cake we had for dessert. Afterward we returned home for more conversations and catching up.
Sun morning we had coffee and talked while some also perused the newspaper. Eventually we dressed and walked over to JD's Cafe for breakfast. It was cool but sunny so after breakfast we went for a nice walk through town, ducked into a few stores, and walked through Canalfront Park before returning home. We talked and laughed some more until it was time for Spouse & me to get ready to go to a wedding. Our dear friends Deb & Greer invited us to their wedding and reception nearby so we went to it while Ron & James and Mike & Clark went shopping at our wonderful, tax-free outlet centers. The wedding was a lovely event and we had a terrific time.

This morning Spouse went to work as usual and I stayed with the guys until they packed up and left at about 9:45.
We were really happy that our friends who don't have dogs were so comfortable interacting with Marvin and Walter and vice versa. We certainly wouldn't expect those who don't have dogs to play or hold our pets, but they did and everyone seemed to enjoy it. We had a great weekend, as always, with our great, longtime friends.
