  Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
  Friday, Aug. 29th @ about 8:20 PM......Sweet granddaughter Violet, 18.5 months old, all set to go on the 'Bulgy The Whale' ride, all by herself, at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. She was 'up' for the ride, even after a busy day and also riding the 'Jet Copter' with Blake and the 'Riptide' with daddy Bill and mommy Melissa. Violet is so very sweet, disposition wise, and stayed awake until the ride home at 10:30 PM. No fussing, ever, with her. She loves her family and the Santa Cruz beach.
  Tillamook Cheesin'
  Tillamook Cheese Factory, early July 2014. Ben, Diane, Julia and Danny on their very first visit to the Oregon Coast's most popular tourist attraction, the Tillamook Cheese factory. Sue and I, along with Melissa, Bill, Blake and Violet accompanied them.
  We toured both interactive floors of the building. Had a terrific lunch (Tillamook Cheeseburgers and Tillamook Cheese toasted sandwiches) and finished it off with waffle ice cream cones. Great day. Lots of 'Team Thompson' fun. This was Ben and family's second trip to the Oregon Coast; the first being last year in 2013.
  Tillamook Cheese Factory
  Early July, 2014......Ben and Julia getting in line for an ice cream cone at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. They are pointing to the board that lists all the flavors, trying to decide what to order. It's a tough decision, but fun to figure out. Absolutely the best ice cream on the planet.
  Yvonne, Alexis & I stopped at the Tillamook Cheese Factory way back in 2011 on our way to TTHQ for Thanksgiving weekend and paid for the following 'cheese-mail' video.
  EZFun Fact: Cheese Mail is Cheesy!
  EZThompson Video Vault

  Friday, Aug. 29th.......Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk......Bill & Melissa laying flat and getting locked in before the ride takes them high in the air and whirling them around in a circle over the boardwalk. They loved the ride. Weather a perfect 67 degrees.
  Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
  Friday night, August 29, 2014......Concert on the beach at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, featuring 'Papa Doo Run Run'. Sue and I, Melissa, Bill, Blake and Violet took in some great Beach Boys music.........and some great rides as well. Blake introduced me to the Riptide ride, which didn't scare him one bit.

  TTHQ Bird Feeder
  Bring on the birds.
  Dad writes:"I built a platform and some twigs onto our new bird feeder. Three benefits......1. Birds can relax and sit on the twigs/platform while they eat (making it stress free for them). 2. Considerably less bird seed falls to ground. 3. More birds in the feeder and far fewer birds on the ground."

  Summer 2010. L to R: Kris, Betty and Sharon enjoying a relaxing afternoon. No cares, no stress, no burdens. Just a beautiful mother/daughter day to be at the beach.
  Summer 2010. Sunday community breakfast at Coronado Shores clubhouse. Late cousin Betty loved the beach and loved going out socially. We played some BINGO that week, as well (Betty brought some BINGO hats that we all wore). Loved her spirit, as she kept doing things no matter what ailed her. Sharon (L) and me (R).
