We're Back!

Yes we are back, Home Sweet Home. The trip did not start how we expected it but hey at least we survived 5 day out of the country with the kids. To start off, on Thursday we woke up late, then when we went to the Airport the Airline (Spirit) made us pay for Anthony, even though I called back in April when we bought our tickets and asked if he had to pay full price or just taxes, the retard on the other line said No, both of the kids just have to pay for taxes. What sucks the most is that we paid more for Anthony's ticket then Jose's and mine combined. Then when we got to Costa Rica it just got worst the Airline LOST the kids luggage, everything we had for them was gone. I mean everything the outfits for the wedding, shoes, pj's, everything, I had to buy them new cloths, because there are no little kids in the family except for my kids. Then when we get there it turned out that we had to stay at my grandmothers house because my cousin apartment had issues with the hot water and that was another thing I did not want to do because my grandmother has major issues, I would write about it but I could spend ALL day on it. Then every time I would ask how to get to the bus, to go outside the city, to the beach or a volcano, my mother especially, wanted to freak us out and tell us that we would get mugged or stabbed which is not true. She just wanted to mess with our plans, I don't know why maybe she was mad or jealous of the cool things that we wanted to do. Anyway besides ALL that we had a pretty good time, Friday we did a coffee tour, Saturday we went to the wedding. After the wedding Jose and his sister and her boyfriend went to the Pacific Ocean. I stayed back because it was a 3 hour bus ride and I did not want to do that with the kids to stay at the beach for a couple of hours and then come back. I stayed back and talk to a friend of mine that actually moved to Costa Rica 3 years ago and we got together and spoke for hours she met the kids and spent the night with us. The next day the 4 and my friend went to the capital walked around and bought some souvenirs,while Jose sister and her boyfriend went to a Volcano. Then on Monday we went to a National Park and did the Canopy thing and a Sky Bucket which was pretty cool and walked around the park. When we got back from that The Airline called my aunt told her that the bag was found and that we could pick it up, but it was to late then since we were leaving Tuesday anyway. We just asked for our bag when we were at the ticket counter. It turned out that the bag was at Fort Lauderdale airport for 2 days and then it was sent to the Dominican Republic and then to Costa Rica. So I am going to call our friend who is an attorney and have her write a letter about the whole ordeal and see if maybe we get get some our money back. I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines ever again.

The main reason we went to Costa Rica, my cousin's Wedding. It was beautiful.

The wedding was at a Amusement park, on a part of the park call Pueblo Antiguo, meaning Old Town. It supposed to be how Costa Rica used to look like back in the day. It had everything there a little Market which is were the reception was held and they had a City Hall i mean everything you would find in a town they had it there even a train.
