We were given a wonderful blessing this weekend… probably one of the best gifts you could give our family… A weekend at the beach – in a beachfront villa nonetheless on the stunning Caribbean coast. Some of the highlights included… watching Kai surf! He really got into it and was standing up. Playing in tidepools finding crabs, snails and shells. Hanging out with the Cruce’s in their jungle home and playing at the beach with their two beautiful little girls. The Cruce’s have a ministry for the youth of Puerto Viejo… including a skate park and home church and they’re in need of staff, email us if you’re interested in serving with them. We even got to attend Makenna’s 6th birthday beach party, which the kids loved.
There was one downside, unfortunately… Jude ended up getting really sick – a high fever and an intense asthma attack. Scott ended up taking him into an emergency clinic at 3 a..m, returning at 6 a.m. Poor little guy. He’s all better now, but he didn’t get to enjoy the beach very much, and Scott and I traded off hanging with Jude in the “villa” and playing with Kai and Ezzy on the beach. It’s pretty amazing that even with that, we really had a fabulous time as a family and created memories that we will cherish forever.
by the way, if you’re headed to Puerto Viejo, I highly recommend this hotel – perfect location! www.villasdelcaribe.com
