Christmas in Costa Rica

For the holidays and winter break, we had saved most of our personal vacation days from the past months and were able to spend 20 warm, lovely days with our family in Escazu, Costa Rica.  We left Tbilisi on December 20 and arrived there about 27 hours later on the same day!  It was late at night so we had to wait for the morning to give hugs to the boys and have our first meeting with our new granddaughter, Eliana . The boys, Kylan and Auden were up by 7 and greeted us with big hugs.

In the following days we had many adventures: some with the whole family, a few with just us and the boys or other combinations.  We also got to meet many of Stephen and Dana’s friends who joined us for dinners and barbecues with various numbers of children. One of the big highlights was a 3 night visit to Manuel Antonio beach where we had spacious accommodations, great weather, monkeys outside our windows, and the Pacific ocean just a few minutes drive away.

Here is a sampling of our pictures and videos.  More can be seen at the link below.

We are including a link to Dropbox where you will find lots of pictures and a few videos of our adventures.
