been a while

here are a few pics from my camera. sadly i didn't take a ton of pics in costa rica- mostly cause it's the rainy season and they mean that. it rained from about noon through the night every day.

Here is Damon getting the first sun of the summer, which is quite obvious. The water was a bit dirtier than normal because of the class two hurricane that hit the night before. The waves were still fun and the sun was bright. We had a BLAST!

This was my first taste of coconut water. An old man was walking the beach selling them. I thought it would be wonderfully delicious and to my unpleasant surprise it was pretty bad. Then I learned that it is a natural laxative. Luckily enough for me I didn't suffer these ill effects.

One of the highlights of the trip was the Zip Line we flew down in Monteverde in the cloud mountains. The 13 lines ranged in length and height. Some we would ride down the line with trees on both sides of us and other lines we would fly a hundred feet above the canopy top flying for 1200 meters. It was spectacular, and worth traveling all around the world to do it again.

This was a red eyed tree frog that gave us a smile. We had to travel through the thick jungle in the middle of the night to find this phenomenal animal.  Actually...... we went to a frog museum.

I put this picture out of order. Well, most of them are out of order, but this is back at the zip line where Damon did the "Tarzan Swing."

Damon took a picture of the storm before the BIG STORM hit. The water in the road was two feet deep in spots and overflowing over the sidewalk in others. Later that night the big storm hit and tore down trees and the power and water was out for the night. It was a night to remember.

This bug was the grossest part of the trip. It was HUGE! But I guess the picture tells the story for itself.
This is our new puppy. We brought him home yesterday and Damon loves to him to death. He barely lets his sleep, because once he falls asleep he picks him up to let his sleep on his chest like a baby. It's kind of cute while he can because this dog is going to be BIG.
