A Birthday to Remember

Daniel carefully arranged for my sister and a friend to come to Panama for my birthday! They had a wonderful visit, and I had the best birthday ever. We filled their days here laughing, talking, story-telling, sight-seeing and smiling.

All too soon Tiffany and Kristen had to go home. But I’ve officially decided that it’s grand having visitors here, so if anyone else wants to come visit, just come on down! The weather is great! The food is cheap! We just bought an air mattress, so sleeping accommodations are better now, and we just killed the only scorpion we’ve ever seen. So all is well!

P.S. A word of advice though: If you northern folks do decide to come, bring sunscreen. I’ll remind you to actually put it ON before we walk to town.
