When I emailed Heidi to tell her that we were coming back just to pack up and go, her response was priceless (it was a great, spontaneous response, but I can't blog it ... so just use your imagination). Anyway, once we have their new passports, we can apply for their visas at the US Embassy -- and then it's back to San Jose we go!
While we are so happy that the adoption process is now moving along at a rapid clip, we will be sad to leave Nosara and say goodbye to the padrinos y primas. Tomorrow, we plan to spend the day and evening together. Papa and Evelyn may try and go horseback riding on Sunday morning or it may have to wait until our next trip to Nosara. Below are some photos at our favorite restaurant, Monteverde, midway between SJ and Nosara. Evelyn and Jose now recognize the place as soon as we approach it. It's a great "rest stop" with a playground and some dinosarios to boot.
