Costa Rica Round 2

We loved Costa Rica so much last year we decided to come back.  The Myers joined us on the trip along with Mike's parents, and Izzy.  How could we leave Izzy this time?  We flew out of Salt Lake with the Myers Tuesday night.  Izzy slept that flight, the layover in Denver, and the flight to San Jose.  It was awesome!  We landed in San Jose at 6 AM and were though customs and off in our rental car by 6:40.  That's what I call good service!

Wednesday we took naps, went grocery shopping, and laid around the pool.

More naps
Melisse and Rob were smart and left their kids at home.  Of course, they skype every night. 
Izzy loves swimming on her own in the pool.

Thursday morning we headed to the beach for a run.  Running in the sand is hard! For some reason, I picture this fun, nice, run with sand in your toes.  Yeah, it's never that luxurious.  It's more like sweat dripping, mud weighing me down, and heavy breathing. Louise offered to watch Izzy since Richard was not arriving til that night.  We went with the Myers to the crocodile bridge, toured around Jaco, and headed to the beach to soak up some rays.
You don't want to fall off the bridge. 
These things are big!
Love the view!
Pura Vida!!

Friday we went ziplining.  This is one of my favorite excursions.  The first couple ziplines I am scared, but by the 12th I feel like a pro.  The rest of the day we spent at the black sand beach in Hermosa.

Izzy became quite the dare devil in the water.
