Smith & Ben

This morning Katie walked into the kitchen, saw Ben's sweet face and said, "I love you, Ben." to which he pointed at her and replied, "And I love YOU Random Citizen!" Too many super hero movies i guess.

Evening Timelapse

Costa Rica Timelapse from Florblanca Resort on Vimeo.

I stayed up till 4 in the morning babysitting my camera on this one. One big wave almost took my whole setup in the the surf so i decided to quit. The stump in the foreground was about 8 feet wide and weighed a ton. The waves started throwing it around like a toy as the tide came in.

The flashlights in the very beginning of the video are people fishing for lobster on the rocks.

Iguana Town!

Iguana Town! from Florblanca Resort on Vimeo.

I wish I could have shown the boys the iguanas at Florblanca.  They were so great.  They are really timid around people but very territorial with each other.  We were eating lunch one day when I heard this really loud slap on the ground.  Two of them were fighting and one fell out of the tree.  Another day I got out of the pool and one of them was on my table eating my chips!


Ben is 3 today. What a joy it is to be his dad. If there is anything that I will remember most about ben's 3rd year of life it will be, "Dad, can we watch a little bit of BBC life Series" or "Are we having a a blast?" or maybe "Will you tell me a story about cars?" right before bed. He is fearless except when you turn him upside down or try to wash his hair.

As I watch my boys grow up before my eyes my hope for each of them is that they are strong, tender, wise and humble. I want them to know God's Word so that when they encounter the storms of life they will have a solid ground stand on.
