We left Nosara on a high note. On Saturday, we went to the playa with the padrinos y primas and the kids had a blast. The beach was quickly followed by one last dinner at Evelyn's new favorite restaurant, Rancho Tico. And this time, the girls joined the crowd on the dance floor.
We said our sweet farewells to everyone late this morning, but not until after papa and Evelyn went horseback riding together. She came back positively glowing. Now if only we could have closed our eyes and tapped our heels together three times and found ourselves back in San Jose. Five hours of traffic and temper tantrums (and not just from the kids) took a bit of the wind out of our sails. We hope that all goes well tomorrow when we apply for the children's passports and then we plan to take them on a couple of spectacular day trips.
