Costa Rica - Sunday to Tuesday

We have had a great few relaxing days here in San Jose! We have stayed mainly at the house, and it's been wonderful! (I'm almost done with Book #3 on this trip!) Here is a look at what we've been up to!

On Sunday, the original 5 Tidwells went white water rafting (the wives were invited - we all said no thanks!), so us ladies stayed with the kids and had fun! We loaded them up into the car and drove down to the Villa Real pool! 10 of us loaded into one car!

The kids have done pretty well for spending ten solid days together! AJ, Cason, and Brenden have really bonded on this trip!

Caedmon hanging out

On Sunday evening, the kids put together a church service for us - it was PRECIOUS. I love their hearts! Caedmon preached, while Keysi translated into Spanish!

Cason called himself "The Introducer"

After church, we had a family birthday party where Bmaw gave everyone a shirt she had made that said Tidwells on the front and our name on the back, along with a Scripture verse she had picked out for us!

The kids also got yo-yos, tops, and bubble gum!

Monday was a pretty low-key (book-reading!) day! We sang a LOT of karaoke, and the kids watched Moana and Trolls.

Once we got the kids settled down that night, we called a cab and went to TGIFriday's for dessert and drinks!

I love my Blu.

The girls!

Cherry 7-Up and Monster Oreos!

That's a big table!

The topic of conversation was "Most Embarrassing Moments!" I love this picture because it looks like Paw is falling asleep during Shade's story!

We all wore our shirts! The Tidwell Tornado invasion!

And I survived the taxi ride there...and back!

Tuesday is a National holiday in Costa Rica, so Cloud suggested we stay off the roads and out of the city! We slept in, had Blu's cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and then spent 3 1/2 hours at the pool! We played basketball, swam, ordered pizza, and had a blast!

The weather has been PERFECT!

Six cousins! (Where's AJ???)

A good hair day for Cambree :)

Paw & Caedmon...waiting on someone to play soccer with him!

So handsome :)

Cambree & Keysi

He loves the water and is SO tan after 1 month in the USA!

Me and Paw :)

Even though it was warm, we all enjoyed the hot tub!

Everyone ended up like this... :)
