OK, while wild horses couldn't otherwise get me to travel back to Los Angeles county I can't deny the lure of visiting our oldest daughter and her family. Mary and I look forward to visiting and enjoy the road trip with the exception of the last 130+ miles west of Barstow. That's when we join the traffic returning from Las Vegas.
We arrived with preparations for the coming school year in full swing. The visit started with our traditional Very Merry Unbirthday Party to celebrate everyone's Unbirthday. It's what we do when we can't be present for every individual birthday.
As usual, there were a few opportunities for photos after we arrived.
