pura vida

we are back from costa rica. i want to start off by saying that yes my baby does remember me. or he seems to at least. i know you were probably concerned because of my last post but i survived. lets move on shall we?

we went with brysons work. it was a club trip for those reps who hit their numbers last year. whatever that means... all i know is that we got to go to costa rica all expenses paid and we went to an all inclusive result. way to go bryson.

our flight situation wasn't exactly ideal. we left tuesday night and got to costa rica wednesday afternoon. we had like three hundred layovers. luckily there was a little time to catch up on some prison break. i would like to point out that i am not bald. although this picture certainly makes it look like i am.

we stayed at the riu guanacaste. it was super pretty and clean and fab. the food was not the greatest but it was mango season and they were SOOOOO good. the resort had a huge pool with a swim up bar where we had plenty of pina coladas and strawberry daiquiris (virgin of course) , and the beach was within walking distance. it was bloody hot and we both got 5th degree sunburns. never hear of them? theyre pretty serious.

when we walked into our room this little guy was just waiting for us. its not exactly like you can step on them... so it was rather entertaining watching bryson try to catch it in a cup and set it free. which he did successfully. but by the time we saw the second one we were over it and we all cohabited just fine.

this was our first day there as you can tell by our pasty white bodies. the more i look at this picture i'm just not sure why i put it up... its pretty hideous

every night we would go down to the beach and watch the sunset. it was so pretty i wanted to marry it.

this is what happens when you don't have anyone to take a picture for you .

this was our little spot by the pool. we would have stayed at the beach all day except there wasn't any shade and it really was 150 degrees.

bryson being the adventurous man he is went zip lining through the jungle. he loved it. i stayed at the pool and got burned.

more beautiful sunsets

our last day, drinking our last drinks. we were sad to leave but ready to get back to our baby. i only had one minor meltdown while we were there so i'm going to chalk it up as a success. and its a good thing because in three weeks we're going on a cruise and i'm abandoning my baby all over again. sigh.

remember when you invited me to go on the cruise and then decided the next day to go without me?

Funnnn!!! You guys are so tute. I want to go. And I want to go on a cruise with you guys. And I cannot wait for when you come visit us in California. And I cannot wait for you to get a Disneyland year pass with our address. And I cannot wait for you to use it monthly. Because Bryson will finally realize school is not worth all the effort he puts into it. And I cannot wait to continue to be Sawyer's aunt. I have to go Bad Girls Club is on
