Random pictures

This was taken up North from us on one of our mini vacations. This was quite the wiggly creature. It's a brittle starfish and quite creepy. On this trip I had one of the most relaxing 10 minutes of my life {but since then haven't had a relaxing moment to write about it, until now}

It was beautiful...try to imagine...all my kids at the beach below me {with my honey} up on a cliff about 30 feet above them...silently swinging in my hammock, book in one hand... glass of ice water in the other...ocean breeze massaging my pedicured feet.

Hold on, I need a moment to wipe the tears of joyful remembrance from my eyes.

That hand coming in from the left is, of course my delicate little daughter's. She caught this little guy on the same trip mentioned above. My little sweetie doesn't look too sure about this big tummied fellow.

Wes' sister Brie was here for Thanksgiving and we enjoyed a nice "gringo" style meal at Lemon Zest here in Jaco. Delish.

O.K. I know the picture is sideways, but I'm on a strange computer and can't figure out how to switch it.
With that said, I have to show you this amazing invention. The magnetic escalator. WOW! Isn't that cool? There is a store in San Jose called Hiper Mas. Pronounced E-per-moss. It's owned by Wal-Mart and the prices for items found in the states are decent here. Except for the make-up which can go for over $35 for Loreal liquid make-up. Crazy! Anyway, you get your cart on the bottom floor and take the MAGNETIC escalator up.

Hey Shawna, my lone faithful commentor.

Cute pictures of your family. Love the frog! So if you're on a strange computer is your computer down?

We're all planning on spending the day enjoying our last day of freedom before schedules and responsibilities start again.
