A Costa Rican Wedding

My sister was married in Costa Rica a couple of weeks ago.  So we packed our bags and off to Costa Rica we went.  I will not wax philosophical on the merits of marriage, but rather simply share our the images of our adventure.

I will add we should have took pictures of the food, because we ate some of the finest food we have ever had in Costa Rica.

Delicious breakfast that began everyday with a plate of fruita.

It's a Croc!

Just minding his own business

It's a capuchin monkey! He's minding our business.

There's a monkey on the boat.

 Wedding Time

By 9:30 p.m. the children all tuckered out climbed up on 
the sofas at the edge of the dance floor and went to sleep.

Except for Alex

St. Banjo

My son turned to me whilst completing his lessons today and asked, "Can someone be named Banjo?"

"Yes, a person can be named most anything. Do you know what a banjo is?"


"It's an instrument like a guitar.  It makes a cool sound."

"Well I think it's a good name.  Someday if and when I get a wife, I want to have a son and him Banjo."

"Oh that is interesting.  You know there is a famous Australian poet named Banjo Paterson.  He wrote   one of the most famous songs ever, 'Waltzing Matilda.'"

"Mom, is there a St. Banjo?"


"Can a person named Banjo become a saint?"

"There's a first for everything.  Anyone could become a saint."

"I want to have son and name him Banjo and raise him to be a good Christian so he can be the first St. Banjo."

"Amen, Little Man. That's a good goal."
