More Visitors

For the last days of this month we've hosted some fun visitors:
Cowboys from up north...
My brother Chris and sister-in-law Pam from Oregon who wanted to drive on Daytona Beach...
And a bald eagle from somewhere.

Kim's Surprise

Kim stopped by from Chile for a two day visit on her way to a conference in Atlanta. Half the family (including 20 nieces and nephews) greeted her at the airport or at the cabin for two days of Thompson fun on the farm and at the beach. Chrissy and Randy even popped in from below zero weather in Minnesota. We celebrated birthdays for Victoria, Tatum, and David. Note that each birthday child had candles grouped on their own section of the cake so they could blow them out together and all get a wish. We'll let the pictures tell you what we did before we sent her on her way (though it was too dark to show the piles of ribs, hot dogs, and hamburgers we ate.)

Jungle room staged

We're preparing for our visitors who are escaping the frozen Northland for fun in our Florida log cabin. We just finished the jungle room. You should understand the name when you look at these pictures. One side of the room is to make parents feel comfortable, the other side is for their children. There are lots of adventure books to read and animals to play with.
