    #47 Flat Tire

    HI! Yesterday, my friend Sarah invited me to see the new movie “How To Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World” in Spanish. I KNOW that it will be better in English, but . . . it was still a lot of fun to see. If you have not seen it yet, SEE IT!!! AWESOME MOVIE!!! After the movie Sarah’s mom Fran came and picked us up. We were suppose to just drive to my house and drop me off. That did not happen the way we planned.  About 5 minutes from my house we got a flat tire on a terrible road. We had just made it to a…

    #45 Cacao Plantation

    Hi! On Friday the 18th (after school) our family and our friend Fran and her daughter Sarah, decided to go on a small vacation/one night and one day vacation. We went to a Cacao Plantation and a Dairy Farm in La Fortuna! At the Cacao Plantation we learned how they get the cacao beans ready to make into powder which is made into CHOCOLATE!! We tried the fruit of the cacao and it is a strange flavor. Its like the flavor of a banana and it is a little slimy.  Later into the tour we got to try 100% cacao bean! It is NASTY!!! Fran loved it though. . . that…

    #44 SOY!!!!!!

    Hi! I’m back from SOY and I loved every single minute of it!! It was the best thing that has happened to me. I meet tons of other youth that believe the same things I believe.       Let me explain a little more about what SOY is. SOY is a camp for youth that are member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is 4 days full of firesides, talks, shows, lesson, activities, sports, dances, and much more! It is a way for the youth to gain and strengthen their testimonies. Oh, and it is  a way for us teenagers to have the RIGHT kind of…

    #11 Family Photos

    HI! It has been a really long time since we have had our picture taken professionally. So my parents asked a talented photographer to take our picture at the beach. Because if you live in Costa Rica you have to get you pictures taken at the beach. The pictures turn out great. Without further ado . . . (i had to look up the definition to “without further ado” because i had no idea what it meant) . . . the pictures (Look to the light)  (Look at that 😉 smile)   (Be ye a lighthouse) (Stand ye in holy places and be not moved) (Epic Pic) (Those eyes are…

    #1 Termales Del Bosque – Day One

    Hi! This week, well . . . just Monday and Tuesday, we went to the Termales Del Bosque with our grandparents (my dad’s parents), who came the 26th of March. (Our parents went on vacation to Tamarindo) Termales Del Bosque is an amazingly beautiful place to visit. There are two ways to get to Termales Del Bosque. The first way is a bit crazy. It is very curvy and it might make you sick if you are in a warm car, but it gets you there. The other way is still a little bit curvy, but the road is super smooth and the scenery is breath taking, and you get to drive past…
