Las Vegas with Little Ones, a How To

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

We went to Las Vegas for our honeymoon, and I decided I never wanted to go back. Well that sounds awful doesn’t it? Not because of the company, but because of the town. After a few years I wondered if Las Vegas would have been fun if we hadn’t been so broke. I remember attending […]

Costa Rican Casado Plate

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 in cooking, Our Travels Worldwide, recipes

I told myself after I finished re-doing all of our business books for 2013 (my computer was stolen), figure out a new payroll system for Ty’s employees, filed and re-filed five million tax forms, and finished a family history project I have been working on for over a year….THAT THEN I COULD BLOG! I still […]

Lechería y Quesería en Esterillos, Costa Rica

Saturday, April 27th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

Finca La Florita is a dairy in Esterillos, Costa Rica (very close to Jaco) that makes their own yogurt, milk, cheeses, chile sauce, sour cream, and cream. Oh I had the most beautiful pictures of this place and our experience, just picture it! I have figured out how to do screen shots of my video […]

Waterfalls Cont.

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

We had heard that there was a beautiful little town high up on a mountain where the breezes were cool, farms were there, and a good place to eat. So one day we decided to head on up and check it out. On the way up it started getting steeper and steeper and we soon […]

Surf Lesson with Poppi

Sunday, April 7th, 2013 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

We were looking for something else for the girls to do and checking out surf instructors that give kid lessons. But then Tyler thought well hey why not I try to teach them first. The first lesson went really well. Abby got up at least four times and it made her ecstatic. Cameron got up […]

Third Crocodile Tour

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

Tyler’s parents were here last week and we had such a great week. We of course had to take them to see the crocodiles. It is a fun thing to do because it is COOL (climate wise) and easy enough to do with four little ones. Sadly it was the worst tour we had been […]

La Iguana Chocolate Farm in Costa Rica

Monday, March 25th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

La Iguana Chocolate Farm in Costa Rica is beautiful! It really is in the middle of no where and hard to find due to no one giving real accurate directions. “Just further down that road” they say. “How much longer?” we ask. “Oh 15 minutos mas o menos” they answer. Thirty minutes later we ask […]

Costa Rican Sodas

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

I remember when we came out here last year to vacation that I thought everyone loved SODA! It was odd because every single little restaurant advertised that they carried SODA. How weird, we thought. We soon learned that “sodas” were the name for just small, inexpensive, local food, family run restaurants. Something to that effect…some are quite popular […]

Day at the Water Park

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

About 3 weeks ago I woke up wanting to be in America. I just wanted to take the kids somewhere like Color Me Mine or Thanksgiving Point and veg out. Then I wanted to go get a sub par sandwich and cup of soup at a busy restaurant. Why? I have no idea. It reminds […]

Los Suenos in Costa Rica

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013 in Our Travels Worldwide

Los Suenos is in Herradura Costa Rica, just 10 minutes away from us. I see it in travel articles all the time. Once and awhile we get visitors at church from America and they always are staying there. There is a higher end Americanized grocery store in Herradura where I go to get whole grain […]
