At approximately 4:55 am on Thursday, Raquel and Jason arrived in Costa Rica!  Miguel and I have been rushing around like crazy people to prepare for their visit.

Last weekend, we had three days off and went to the beach.  As soon as we returned on Monday, we made a list of all of the things we had to do.  The list included grocery shopping (Raquel is pregnant and we wanted to make sure we had the foods she likes on hand), buying flowers, gifts, making sure we kept the house clean after Sonia’s visit, washing sheets, and confirming our millions of reservations.  Needless to say, we were pretty busy.

On Tuesday we went to the mall and picked up a few gifts and went grocery shopping.  There is actually a grocery store in the mall.  It’s a great idea, I think, but it’s also a little awkward walking through the mall with a cart boy following you with all of your groceries. When we got home, we did laundry and hung up all of the paintings I have made lately.

The house all ready to go

Neither of us slept very well Tuesday night.  We were both too wired.  Wednesdays are long days at work, and we took off as soon as we were allowed to leave.  We went to a random barbershop and bought tickets for a soccer match (Jason really wanted to go to a sporting event while here).  After our barbershop experience we went and bought flowers… this was an experience because I couldn’t remember the correct words to describe what I wanted, but we came away successful.  After all was said and done, we were both tired and ready for company.

Guest Bedroom... Check!

Miguel woke up early Thursday morning, got totally ready for work and took a taxi to the airport.  He called me at 5:45 A.M. kind of panicked.  I guess the rental car booth at the airport wasn’t open and said it wouldn’t be open until 7:30 (too late for Miguel to make it to work on time).  He called me wanting me to call Budget Rental car and see what was going on.  In the end, they all ended up taking a cab to the rental car company garage and it was open.  They arrived Thursday morning, tired and excited to be in Costa Rica.  They also came bearing packages of an iPad2 for Miguel and a replacement Kindle for me!  We are super excited they are here!  We will be updating this as things go on… On the list of things to do are Arenal Volcano, zip-lining, beach visiting, a soccer game, and some fun touristing.  Pictures will be aplenty!
