Nauyaca Waterfall

The day started with a picturesque drive down to Dominical. Our destination was the Nauyaca Waterfall. Instead of hiking 5 miles in the blazing hot sun, Halle and Blake opted to ride horses to the falls. So fun. Josh did his best to avoid any and all contact with the caballos.  The hike was hot…

Los Campanillos

We decided to venture into the rain forest again today. This time we went in search of hanging bridges. The drive there was quite the adventure. We were on a small dirt road almost the entire time passing through small villages. Then up into the mountains on the steep windy roads.  While we were hiking…

Palm Springs

Ahhh….sunshine. I’ve missed you. For our yearly winter getaway, my parents generously used their timeshare points and took us to Palm Springs over President’s Day weekend. Palm Springs has never been on my radar before–I loved it! I’d definitely go back again. Especially because President’s Day is Modern Week! Palm Springs is a mecca of…

Christmas 2021

The best Christmas story this year is about Blake’s present. Santa was bringing him a Lacrosse Rebounder. Santa ordered it on Amazon and sent it to G&G Cornell’s house. Well, Santa went to check out that box late on the night of Dec 22rd. Santa opened the big box and inside was a SOLAR PANEL.…

40 on the Big Island

Is there anything better in the whole wide world than a surprise 40th birthday trip to HAWAII with your besties?  Micah hatched a plan to surprise Rachel foe her birthday. He very generously used his air miles to purchase our flights, and we stayed in their Condo in Kona. What a kind and thoughtful gift—for…

Disneyland

I don’t even know where to begin. I am so glad we took this trip. We had a blast. I forgot how magical disney really is. Let’s just start at the very beginning. A very good place to start. Halle REALLY wanted to go to Disney at Halloween time to see all the fun decor…

Aug 2021 Recap

We hiked Gray’s and Torry’s Peak with Josh and co! Josh’s first 2 14ers and #2 and 3 for me! It was quite a challenge to get to the top for these boys. So, so steep. Josh was amazing! He was just like this mountain goat. He could scramble anywhere. When we got to the…
