FINALLY!!!

Okay, I hope that you will all forgive me for slacking and for all of the pictures. To pick only a few would not do the trip justice! Costa Rica was beatiful! Many of you have been asking for evidence of our conquering the zip lines and as you can see from the pictures below....we did it! Summaries of each group of pictures would probably bore you all to tears so let me just say this - we were very spoiled on this trip! We stayed in wonderfully nice hotels, ate fabulous food, and were surrounded by great people. It was a trip that we will always remember! Check out the zip line picture and imagine is "zipping" through the rainforest on a series of 8 ziplines. The longest was the length of 8 football fields...800 yards! It was an amazing experience! Enjoy!


View from our hotel, volcanos, beautiful birds, and crazy bus drivers that stop in the middle of the road for nutty tourists to take pictures!


San Jose Costa Rica temple, small plane ride that made us sick, dirt runway that we landed on, view from the plane and my view of the cockpit!


Waterfall the we hiked to...3/4 mile down on man made stairs, some wildlife that we say, other pretty pictures of Costa Rica scenery!


Proof - the zipline! Very unflattering outfits, beautiful views, great friends, upset tummies because we were SO nervous but wonderful memories of flying through the rainforest strapped to a piece of metal that could break at any time! Were we crazy!???! The little dot you see in the middle picture on the bottom row is my husband! Yes, we are crazy!



Our last few days in paradise, the Four Seasons Resort, the pool we swam in, the ocean we kayaked in, the white outfits for our "white beach" party, our tour guides for the trip and the monkey that lived outside our window!

Wow, looks like an amazing trip! I so could use one of those right now. I'll just have to settle for a day or two in St. George I guess, (sigh)...
