More Costa Rica

For some reason, I can only post 4 pictures at a time, so here is more Costa Rica shots.

This is on the beach in Tamarindo, Natalie loved playing in the water, it is such a nice temperature!

This is the view from our house. If you look closely you can see me in the pool on the bottom. It was so beautiful.

Me and Nat chilling in the pool.

Me on the canopy tour of the jungle. It was so much fun zip lining through the jungle, woohoo! Posted by Picasa

Costa Rica

Well, we just returned from the Cook family trip down to Costa Rica. It was a blast, we loved it! Here are a few pictures from our adventures...more later.

Natalie was a huge hit down there, as you can see, she was not quite sure about this guy, maybe it's his leather jacket with no shirt underneath?

Here we are on our river cruise. Not the funnest two hours of my life with a tired baby who just wants to walk, but we did get to see a lot of neat animals between the wiggling and crying.

One of the several crocodiles spotted on our tour. Nice picture taking abilities James!

Natalie loved the sand. Here we are at Tamarindo, a famous spot for surfers. It was a great beach and we had lots of fun. Posted by Picasa

Phone Talker

Here is Natalie's favorite toy, the phone. She loves to hold it up to her ear just like Mommy. And push all the buttons, especially the "Talk" button. If you ever call and it's busy, Natalie just may be on the phone.

this is how she will hold the phone to her ear, way behind her head, it's hilarious.

Happy 1st Birthday, Natalie!

It is Natalie's 1st birthday today, I can hardly believe it. We had a party for her on Saturday and had so much fun with our friends and family that came to celebrate! It was polka dot themed and was at our pool by our house. Thanks everybody for coming! Natalie had a lot of fun and was so happy to open all her fun presents. She has been such a joy this past year and it's hard to believe she's not a baby anymore (well, not a little baby anyway). She is such a blessing for her family and we love her very much. Happy Birthday, Natalie!
