Grandma and Grandpa come to visit!

Last week my parents came to visit from Oregon. It was so nice to have them here!!! It makes them seem so much closer now. It was the first time for either of them to travel to another country aside from Canada or just over the border into Mexico. They loved it here and plan to come again soon and often! Yeah!!

Here are some pictures from their visit~~

We went to the beach for the day. The water was clear, warm, calm, and perfect for swimming and playing in. We found a nice shady spot close to the water, perfect for playing in the sand.

We visited the produce market in Turrialba where we do our shopping every week.

We saw the sights of Cartago, visiting the Bacilica de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles, a pilgrimage site as well as Las Ruinas de la Parroquia which are 16th century ruins of colonial Cartago.

Lastly, we went to Atenas to show my parents the eMi office and to let them see our future home town. We stayed at a B&B where we all shared a room, enjoyed a yummy breakfast, and the kids and I had fun swimming in the pool. Thank you grandma and grandpa!
