The Peterson's Visit

Last Wed. (Feb. 22), Daniel's parents came to visit. They came in on an evening flight on Wed. morning, and Daniel went to pick them up from the airport. On Thursday, they walked to our school and got to experience a day at JCS. They met our students, had a Dominican lunch, and watched some of our classes. It was so fun to have them there seeing what we do! That night we ate dinner on our patio (pasta with okra and mango, and grilled veggies). On Friday we took the day off and went to the Bamboo Hole (a waterfall). We had a wonderful time there and relaxed, got some sun, and played in the water (a little). That night we took them to a Pico Pollo stand (little fried chicken- Dominican fast food). The next day we headed off for the beach. We stayed at a beautiful all inclusive resort, jogged on the beach; went snorkling, wind surfing, sea kayaking; and basically enjoyed ourselves and being with them. We even got to watch the closing ceremonies for the Olympics! All-in-all, we had a great time with them and are so glad they were able to come. It was hard to say good-bye on Monday. :(
Daniel already posted some pics from the trip (see below) and I'll add some more. :)
