Birthday cake, lambs, punting and more

My college friend Karlin, her two boys John and Thomas, and her husband Todd just paid us a visit during their long vacation in England and Wales. The three days went by fast but we crammed in a lot--walks through the city, fun on the local playgrounds, a fiercely contested soccer match in the park, a tour of King's College Chapel, a sunny punting trip on the river Cam, a double birthday celebration (amazingly Karlin and I were both 39--again!) complete with yummy toffee cake and a candle blowout, delicious visits to Hotel Chocolat, and a nice afternoon at the Wimpole Hall estate and farm, where we saw lots of newborn lambs and piglets. And did I mention the stroll through the cemetary to the pub and lots of SpongeBob Squarepants? Whew, I'm still tired. See what you all are missing? Come visit!--JT
