Lucas Loves The Pool

Lucas has been having a blast in the pool. He’s in there at least once a day. I recorded a couple of short (5 second) videos of him diving and flipping in. I want to test out the YouTube module for this web site theme and this short blog post will do the...

A Walk to Cobano

I walked the the four or so kilometers to Cobano yesterday. I wanted to get some exercise and see how tough a hike it was before dragging the kids along. We needed some groceries,┬áso I grabbed an empty day pack and headed out the door. It has been raining a lot here, but the clouds were not threatening for my trek. I’ll let the pictures tell the story of what the area we are staying in looks like. It took about 45 minutes to get to town. I didn’t take any pictures there, but maybe I will next time....

Our Home In Costa Rica

I hope you didn’t think I’d be blogging every day after I named my previous post Day One In Costa Rica.

Yes, we can go...

We have been so busy wrapping up loose ends in Calgary and getting the first couple of months of accommodation booked that we didn’t spend much time on the logistics of what to do...

Last Minute Details

We are getting down to the wire here. We are on the stand-by list for the flight tonight! I’ve been meaning to post more often leading up to the departure, but the list of things to take care of has been daunting. Daunting, but not insurmountable. Today we sold our second car, the 2014 Toyota Highlander we affectionately named BB. I’ll give a plug for Danyal Ahmed at Honda West. He did a great job helping us and Honda West gave us the best deal, even better than the Toyota dealer we bought it from. We still have some...
