A vacation day

For the most part, while our time in CR has been fun, it hasn't exactly been like a vacation.  I have tried to cook a lot of our meals, walk instead of take taxi's, and just be frugal in general.  But now that we are in our last week (boo hoo) and Luke is back (yay!), we are "vacationing" a bit.

Today we went to Hotel Leyenda.  It is located on the outskirts of Carillo, and is a little bit isolated.  Because of this they offer free shuttle transfers for parties of 4 or more.  They came and picked us up from our villa and brought us back.

Once there, we were able to enjoy the large pool....

Have what Luke deemed the best guacamole he's ever had (it had hard boiled egg in it)

Order too much delicious food (at really reasonable prices)

Play fuzball (sp?), ping-pong, and pool.

Zeke enjoyed the playground

And we adopted a little tica.  =)
Okay,  not really.
Actually this little girl was playing with my kids and just plopped herself right beside me for the family picture.
She's pretty cute though!

Of course the other picture (with the bonus child) was better

We just made a day of it and it was really fun.  There were a few tico families vacationing there and our kids all played together.  G is doing great with her spanish.  She seems really comfortable when talking with other kids.

Dane is still taking in the spanish, but still manages to play fine with the ticos.  He slipped and fell on the wet tile today, knocking his 2 top front teeth loose, and chipping the one next to them.  Looks like he might be losing them early.

Zeke pooped 6 (or was it 7?) times today.  Not once in the toilet.  We'll just leave it at that. 

The days are ticking away and I don't know how I'm going to say goodbye to this place.
