Costa Rica to Chicago

For posterity: Liz captured the moment where Lauren finally passed the slow moving truck – and in the river, no less! I’ve passed a lot of cars while driving in my time, but I’ve yet to pass another vehicle while in the water.

Chicago to Costa Rica

Woke up super early (4:00 AM) so that we could catch a ride to O’Hare, along with Julie and Bob, for a vacation in Costa Rica. We got invited to stay with Liz’s Uncle David and Auth Beth, and to trade in our cold Chicago days for some warmer climes.

Found Notes

The couple had some kind of “emotional support animal” certificate, and their dog apparently had some kind of anxiety thing as well? To the point where they had Xanax for the dog? I’m not sure what the deal was.

Prep and Travel

Lots of veggies, and lots of plates! I forgot to take a photo until after I had already fed them their dinner, so it’s a total of 12 plates if you count the ones they’re snacking on in the back.

Scenes from the Road

My first thought was to get around this guy as quickly as possible, because the movies taught me that the straps were going to snap at any minute. And every single one of those things was going to be bouncing on the highway like basketballs.

Have Sign, Will Travel

I’m still laughing, looking over these photos. And I still can’t wrap my head around the odds and the sheer randomness, of how these dots all connected together.
