Vacation Plans

We have been working on getting our vacation plans nailed down for the summer and I'm really looking forward to our travels.  Due to the way vacation falls and priorities Josh & I have at work, it just so worked out that we will be taking two trips this summer.  One of them is a surprise so if you know me in real life, please don't mention it to my children! 

We are first headed to Orlando to do Universal Studios for a few days.  We were able to score nearly free tickets on Southwest from credit card points. Universal is running a special where you buy a two-day ticket and you get the third day free.  This trip turned out to be pretty economical all things considered.  We also plan to spend some time at the beach in Daytona and explore some of my old favorites from when I used to live in Florida.  This is the surprise trip.

Our next trip is to Guanacaste, Costa Rica.  We are headed to an all-inclusive RIU on the beach that backs up to a tropical rain forest.  Costa Rica has so many neat things to offer that we've yet to experience including all the wildlife (sloths!) and volcanoes.  We will be near Nicaragua while we are there so we may do a day trip just to check our where all the Americans are retiring.  We will certainly snorkel because my family loves to despite my snorkel challenges.  We will do a volcano tour as well.  Costa Rica looks beautiful and if it is anything like Honduras we should love it.  If you are interested check out this site:
