Costa Rica

December 27 - January 3: The Johnston family and the Gore family traveled south to Central America!

The entire trip was spent spraying sunscreen, surfing, and spraying sunscreen (in that order). The food was notoriously amazing and delicious. We learned that fresh water is hard to come by and iguanas run fast. New favorite drink: Estrella Damm.

Throughout all the excitement, I avoided taking photos. Weird...but I wanted to enjoy it and live it, not document it. Getting out from behind the viewfinder was refreshing and relaxing. However, I still managed to scramble together a few pictures around our incredible house:
