Costa Rica

How lucky was I to take a vacation in December when temperatures here in Utah were ZERO DEGREES? Paul and I went to Costa Rica with his firm. I’m a little behind (a whole month) in posting this, but nobody reads anyway. This is just my journal. Smile

This is the hotel we stayed at, nice huh?

Ate in cool restaurants in the tree tops….don’t I look happy and well rested? That’s what a week of no dishes and angry children will do for ya.

OH the food. Beans and rice cooked in the most delicious ways. Of course I bought a Costa Rican cookbook. Mmm.

Zip lined through the jungle with Paul. Ok, I can’t lie. He did the zipline, I took the photos. I wasn’t gonna sign that waiver stating that I won’t sue if I plunge to my imminent death. One of us has to raise the kids.

Dinner’s in cantinas. We don’t drink, so yea, we had delicious tropical smoothies every night.

The best part? This says a lot about me: The hotel will bring food to your lazy butt by the poolside! (This ‘meal’ cost me $20 bucks, but hey, it’s vacation!)

Now Paul looks well rested too.

I like reading your blog Cynthia when I can find some extra time. Your post on Costa Rica grabbed my attention although I do love visiting and getting embroidery advice on your site. I love looking at your embroidery machine and drooling! I've had a Singer Futura for a little over a year now and feel I'm ready for something a little nicer. Not sure the 830 is in my future anytime soon, but would be interested in your advice on the next step. As for Costa Rica, my husband and I went there (Tamarindo area) on our honeymoon about 5 1/2 years ago. We went in June during the rainy season so it was HOT and HUMID! How was December? But we loved it and want to go back one day.
