BEFORE:



With the little energy we had left around 7:00 PM we cleaned ourselves up, then headed to Portillo's (love their Italian beef sandwiches!) for dinner with Amy, Dirk, Jersti, Kale and Brigs.  Nephew Tristan was at his Dance Force Class.  (He is an amazing dancer)

We thought we might play some games when we got back, but we were all pretty wiped out, so sleep was the most popular option!

Day two report tomorrow.
