We decided to escape the snow and cold (-21 with the wind chill when we left). We spent last week in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. It was wonderfully warm...low 90's and not a cloud in the sky. The kids loved being able to swim every day. We did a few excursions: 4-wheeling in the country, zip-lining through the rainforest, mud baths and hot springs at the volcano basin, and deep sea-fishing.
The whole group from Wisconsin.
Ian and Ella zip-lining. One of the guides hooked Ella to his harness.
Yes, we cheered on the Packers in our swimsuits. All the commentary was in Spanish!
The beach was dark, volcanic sand. A nice beach, but I think we prefer the white sand beaches. The dark sand stained everything!
The guys took Ian fishing. 3 hours and 45 minutes of boredom, but the last 15 minutes were worth it. They caught a Rooster fish that was as tall and weighed as much as Ian! Unfortunately Rooster fish aren't good eating, so they didn't bring it back for the resort kitchen to cook for us.

It's been a while since I posted some pictures. We've been extremely busy with Ian in 3rd grade. He turned 9 in October. And Ella will be 3 the end of this month. She'll start "big girl school" after she turns 3. They are both growing up so fast!!!

The hotel was beautifully located along the Li River. The scenery was breathtaking. Even though it was the rainy season, quite hot and humid and very overcast, we hiked through the local villages. We had planned on rafting on a bamboo raft down the lazy river, but with all the rain, the river wasn't as 'lazy' as we'd hoped, and they cancelled all rafting trips. The next day we had planned on biking through the rice paddy country, but again it was raining, so we just hired a van who drove us around the countryside, through the rice paddies, and to a town with the 600 year-old Dragon Bridge. Yangshou was definately one of the highlights of our trip to China...it was so beautiful and gave us all great memories of the province where Ella is from.
