Lots of Pura Vida

We were blessed with an amazing trip to visit Aaron’s brothers family in Costa Rica this April. It was so fantastic to see Justin, Lisa, Caleb, and Jacob! We have missed them since January, and had a blast!

Costa Rica is so beautiful, it’s hard not too! We enjoyed the weather, food, drinks, and fun!

Here is a brief recap of our lovely week a house guests!

Wednesday and Thursday were fun mornings with Lisa, I, and the kiddos, while Aaron and Justin worked. While the boys had school, Lisa, myself, Addy, and Max enjoyed some coffee, as well as errands and the Market! After the boys were home on Wednesday, we enjoyed the lovely community pool in the Bloomer’s Santa Ana neighborhood! On Thursday – we went horseback riding at the lovely Finca Caballo Loco. We had a blast!

On Friday, the crew of 8 of us ventured off on a 4 hour trek to Tamarindo. We made a pit stop at the Monkey Lady on the “side of the road” (literally!) on our way there. What fun!

We arrived to 105 degree weather and a desire to hop right into the pool! After checking in, we ate lunch at the Barcelo Longasta Beach and got our swim suits on – only to be met by swarms of bees! Caleb and Max both got stung (Max in the EYE!) and overall, the hotel left a lot to be desired – but we had a blast anyway. The waves were awesome, and we even took surfing lessons. What an experience!

On Monday, Lisa took Caleb, Jacob, and the four of us to Poas Volcano, as well as La Paz Waterfall Gardens – WOW! What a fun time! Toucans, Snacks, Buterflies – Oh My!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Lisa, talking, enjoying her guacamole and salsa, and lots of laughs!
