My brother got married in Costa Rica a little over a week ago and while the travel there with the kids was umm, not the most pleasant thing, seeing him get married in such a beautiful setting, to the perfect gal for him, was so incredibly special. We are so excited to have Sarah as part of the family and I only wish we could have stayed longer (but maybe with the help of a Nanny). I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
On our first day in Costa Rica, it took Finn approximately four seconds to ask if he could dig. Which shouldn't have come as a surprise because when Miles asked him, "Do you like Costa Rica?" Finn said, "yes, there's lots of dirt"
And sister squealed in delight while she played in the mud:
Occasionally Finn would take a break for other activities like "surfing" with dad:
We enjoyed a boat ride to see some Costan Rican wild life:
But afterwards Finn wanted to get back to digging:
And Mary wanted to get back to eating:
Then washing her food down with a cold beer:
|Does this mean we are in trouble?|
|That is a REAL bowtie I had to learn how to tie.|
And forget about taking any pictures mom - there is sand to be played with!
When the sun set, we made our way to the reception:
Rob and Sarah were both cadets on the Air Force Academy Parachute team, Finn saw this cake and laughed and said, "Planes don't go on cake." I wish I got a better picture of the cute plane and little skydivers, but you get the idea:
|Mary is wearing a suit given to my sister when she was a baby!|
It was a really fun trip and I'm so glad we had such special time with my family:
|The boy with the Yellow Hat|
|Nothing screams tourist like an Air Force Academy hat and shirt|
And while I'm grateful for the time with family, I'm especially glad the flight back was a million times better and shorter than the flight out there:
