Many of the houses in Costa Rica are made of tin. This one was taken in January of 2006, when Spencer and I came down to scout out moving here. This little boy reminded me of Nathan, who was also missing his front teeth at the time.
A sweet friend of mine, one I would not offend for the world, gifted us with this Amazon Parrot. We named him Dave, after another good friend. We are working on training him to speak. It is interesting to learn about Parrots, and as they can live for 50 years, we have plenty of time.
Another interesting pet we picked up just today. No name as of yet, but my vote is for Creepy. The boys are fascinated! I feel a study on scorpions coming on.
