Feeding a Monkey, Picking Grapefruit & Baby Horsies

December 19th, 2012 in Our Travels Worldwide

Yes, HORSIES. It is a word in this house and I am pretty sure that is how you spell it.

In one of our first weeks at church there was another American couple there that were brand new like us. And they were from South Jordan, just 5 minutes away from where we lived in Herriman. Both of their spouses had passed away and they had just married each other, they were newlyweds. They were here in Costa Rica for a work project; getting a group home up and running again. The group home was built about 7 years ago and it was a place for troubled youth to come. Things happened and it closed down 3 years ago and this couple were sent in to start getting it put back together. Although the owners of the property didn’t get money they were planning on and the project was on the outs again. So this sweet couple who planned on staying quite a bit have already left back to Utah. They were so positive about it though, they just looked at it as a nice honeymoon.

Before they left they had us come over to see the grounds; all the buildings, show horses, the pet monkey, the fruit trees, etc. Boy this place was beautiful! And Tyler has always wanted to meet a monkey, actually he has always wanted to own one (that will never ever happen). We all got to feed the monkey banana peels and Tyler was the only one that wanted to touch his hand, so he did.

Let me show you some pictures from our tour:
