Happy 2008!

I am going to try this one last time for this post. Believe it or not I've tried 4 different times and it hasn't been saving my changes. Instead it just wanted to post my heading and leave everything else blank...isn't that special?! Where to begin...

After Christmas Courtney and I decided to take it easy and relax. We then began to go stir crazy in our house so we had to get out. We went towards Santa Isabel in search of a new beach or just something fun to do. We didn't find any beaches but we did find a nice restaurant for lunch. It had a beautiful view of the water and it was out of the way. After eating lunch we went to see the 2nd National Treasure at their new big cinema. I thought it was a wonderful movie...if you haven't seen the first one you should see it and then go see this one! Here are a few pics from the restaurant.

Next came New Years. We were going to have a very low key, stay at home night when we saw Sara. She wanted to have a bonfire and we thought it was a great idea. When we got to the beach to get wood it was so windy. We thought we might not be able to start a fire let alone keep it going. We had also taken our little BBQ grill out for dinner. We ended up being able to start the fire and keep it going, we just had to continually add firewood which meant we had to find wood. Sara gets the firewood finder award for the night. She had a little lamp on her head and she went hunting. Overall we had a great time - very relaxing - and I can't wait to have another bonfire!!

We took it easy on New Year's Day and then the following day we went to Fajardo in search of a beach we had heard of. We had to go to one beach and hike past it to another beach but it was worth it. Beautiful soft sand, calm water, and plenty of things to see if you snorkel. We had a great time there until it started to rain which is when we decided to hike back and go home. We ran into a woman on our hike from Connecticut who has been living in PR for 2 1/2 years now with her husband. She told us about a few things that she likes to do that we need to go check out now. Overall it's been a great start to 2008 and we know it will be a full and exciting year. We start school again soon...but not before some more fun!
