Day 3: Today is my birthday, I turned 36 years old :) Today also is when I drank coffee for the first time... I can't say I like it, but I'm scared I will get into it. If you ever seen movie "Kicking and Screaming"... you may know what I mean.. I think that could be me :)

The tide was pretty low and exposed a bunch of rocks, so we decided to go for a little walk on the beach in the morning.

After lunch, Oliver went for a nap and I decided to go for a hike in a search for monkeys :) Good thing I brought my hiking shoes with me!

As soon as I got to a pretty steep hill, it started to rain... hard! And that is when I found a few monkeys.. they were very close and If not for the rain, I would love to stay and take better photographs but I had to turn back and head down.

Here is a view.. you can see a bit of our hotel down there and our beach, of course the visibility is not the best due to the pouring rain :(

To celebrate my Birthday we decided to go for some sushi here at the resort. Not the best sushi I ever had but not too bad :)

Day 2: Second leg of our journey... Houston to Liberia, Costa Rica. Waking up very early in the morning in Houston was tough for Oliver and the rest of us but it had to be done :)

Once in a while Oliver would take my camera from me and would ask if he can take a photo... he is actually pretty good at it for a two and a half year old. I have a collection of his good images now... Here is a photo of me that he took when we were taking off :)

Loading into our personal mini bus to travel to the hotel, some people prefer to stay close to the airport but I love to see some of the country before we get to the hotel.

2015-10-16 09:46 Dawn: Looks like Oliver is liking the sand under his feet. Those chairs look like fun to. So nice you have a jetted tub and a fan on your balcony, nice way to end the night.

Day 1: Travel begins!

We got lucky! Our plane was pretty much empty. I had three seats to myself and Tracy and Oliver shared another three seats. This was probably the best flight I have been on in all of my travels. Great food, great views, everything just worked out perfect!

2015-10-15 09:12 Dawn: Great pictures of your first day... So happy for you that it was a wonderful flight and all went well...

Yesterday Tracy had her big bike ride with her company as Calgary Corporate Challenge. Oliver and I went as well to support her, and after close inspection of the bike, Oliver was ready for the ride. If you look closer you will see Oliver is on Tracy's back fro the actual ride :)

Earlier today Tracy, Oliver and I went for some family fun at a corn maze farm. After photographing a full day wedding yesterday, I tried not to take photos today, but of course I couldn't :)

Right after we made it back to our campsite it started to rain. Luckily it was time for Oliver to go down for a nap so I had a bit of time to do some work.

After Oliver's nap the rain stopped and we decided to go and spend some time at Sylvan Lake.

What a better way to finish our camping trip but with a great fire pit and some traditional Belski camp fire bacon! Tonight should be only +4C (39F), hope we will not freeze :)

DAY 2: Well, it was an interesting night... thunder, lightning, rain, very cold weather. When we woke up, in the morning, it was still raining.

Last night a few friends of ours joined us. The plan was to camp together for a couple of nights... Because the weather forecast predicted that it will be raining at least till 3pm, we all decided that we should drive to Red Deer and spend our day with some indoor activities for the kids.

We decided on a lunch and than go see a movie. Unfortunately, our first time camper friends decided that they can't survive another scary rainy night and headed home.

For the next hours and hours we spent setting up camp... It took us forever to get all the pegs in for our tents into the gravel. It was raining pretty much the whole time we were setting up. Lucky the rain stopped in the evening, when, exhausted, wet and tired we had a nice fire.
