Last week Nathan’s mom came to visit us. We had all been looking forward to this for a while. It was fall break for her so it was the perfect time to visit. We didn’t have a lot of stuff planned to do because she really just wanted to be a part of our daily lives.
Sloane said she got tired of making new signs when people visit so she decided to make one awesome one that she can use every time someone visits. I made a Costa Rican dinner of picadillo, lizano beans and gallo pinto. After we visited for a while we had to break into the suitcases for our “goodies” from amazon and from Nana. I ordered the kids Halloween costumes ahead of time so they were excited to see them.
Sunday morning we went to church and we got to introduce Nana to our new church family. She, like my parents, felt so much better about us being here after being at the church. Early in the week we went to Nathans office and met some of his coworkers. We did some cleaning and rode bikes for exercise. I showed her the grocery store and our equivalent of sams. We worked on a few projects . And disposed of a poor bird that had run into one of our windows and inadvertently killed himself. One of her last days here we got to take her to our favorite local place, La Paz. We feel like it is a great way to take on Costa Rica in one day. There is so much to see there. One of our favorite things to do while Nana was here was to play cards. We had some great nerts tournaments! We enjoyed introducing her to the local foods here. The picture below is at one of our favorite restaurants. There we introduced her to chifrijo and patacones. Unfortunately our week had to come to an end but at least we know we will see her again in 2 months!!
