What did the Thompson clan do to bring in the New Year?
Of course, we went to the 30 acres to ride horses...
and cook hot dogs. We forgot the hot dog roasting sticks so we improvised with a pitch fork, farmer style. We used the logs for our new home as a table.
We played at the beach and shot off rockets in the back yard.
That night we enjoyed steaming and eating two large bags of fresh Florida oysters to give us good luck and stamina for the new year while warming ourselves around a bonfire before shooting off our own fireworks.
The next day we went camping for three days at Hontoon Island state park on the St. John's River.
We hiked through the jungles of Florida and found plenty of manatees.
Do the explorers look happy?
What a great way to start the new year!! Happy New Year, everyone!!
