-the park is fun even in the rain and it's pretty exciting to play in warm rain
-nice security guards that kick you off beaches because it is after sunset have the courtesy (in awesome Creole accents) to ask if we are the 'Utah van' and then proceed to give us 'safety tips' like taking our GPS off of our dash (a sincere thanks on this one--I never even thought twice about it).
-no bugs. I was SO worried about this one, so far we've seen LOTS of lizards (we watch them regularly while eating breakfast and lunch out our porch door) and a few little tiny spiders and things that one would normally have around, but nothing major.
-when it rains, it feels like a sauna. Literally. But when it's sunny outside there is always a beautiful ocean breeze and it doesn't feel too bad-I like it.
-the trees here look fake because their leaves are so thick. Also neon pink and purple flowers EVERYWHERE. Also these trees with orange blossoms are everywhere.
I know there is probably a lot more I could say, but I'll just post some pictures for now.

|Best niece ever.|
|I took Danica to the ocean for about 3.1 minutes while the Elders Quorum were unloading our van. I am pretty useless and it was probably more helpful to take the kids elsewhere than stick around.|
|My heart. I am so in love with this photo.|
|He should be on a postcard.|
