Wow Honduras






Hello Everyone (that meaning the 5 people who check my blog :)!!! We are back from Honduras and doing well. The reason that I included the word wow in the title of this post, is because that was officially Sofia's new word in Honduras. From the take off of the airplane to spotting turtles in a pond, Sofia said "wow" to every new thing she saw. Many have told me that I am crazy to make a trip like this with a toddler and over 6 months pregant... and you are all right, but I am so happy that we did. Although there were a few stressful parts of the trip, we essentially spent our vacation at the family property swimming all day long, eating, napping, and laughing with family. Neither Chris or I had a watch, so we usually didn't even know what time it was. No news, no internet, no t.v..... it was so nice!!! I am not even sure how everyone there was related.. but if someone is much older than you.. just call them tio or tia.. and if they are closer to your age... primo or prima works well. It was so fun to see how Sofia really chsrmed and connected to the older family members. Everyone down there said that she is pure Becerra, and they loved how she ate up all of the Honduran food, because in that culture food=love. Although I had a great time, once again I come home grateful for all that we have here... drinkable water, warm showers, cars..... Life is good... but with that said, I must also mention that I think that I am ready to stay home for awhile!! More posts to come soon friends!!

I love all those photos. I'm so glad Sofia got to meet her family there and I have no doubt she charmed and entertained them (that is a great mix of Becerra and Olsen!) You and Chris deserved some time to really relax. I'm glad you got it. Maybe this can become a semi-annual event?

WOW! Kris is leaving a message....okay....glad y'all are back. Iceland is unique and beautiful but crazy expensive ie: burgers and fries for $20! Camping cost per person $10-15 a night. Youth Hostels $80-120 a night. We have made a game of beating the system. Coming late, leaving early to avoid paying. Getting free coffee and hot chocolate at banks. We haven't lowered ourselves to thievery...yet. Anyways, one weeks left to survive. I am sure we will be headed your way to get berries and visit soon after.
