He's now 6 weeks old, absolutely adorable. They hung out with us until it started to get dark. Just as they walked out of the door the lights came back on. Fortunately, it was cool today - 68F - so we didn't miss the a/c. Sunday is supposed to be 90+.
Oh geez. That sucks about the power going off, but at least you were able to pull off the meal in spite of that. And hooray for the nice temperatures.
