Happy Birthday to Trey

Well as many of you all know it was in fact my Birthday on the 25th thanks to all of you that wished me a happy birthday. As for us we had a interesting day and would love to share it with you all. So we awoke at 4:40am to go and climb the highest mountain in Cost Rica. With a harty breakfast of peanut butter and honey sandwhiches we where off climbing at 5:20am. we made it to about 8000ft in about 2 hours and I could tell Jenna was not feeling good. As many of you know Jenna is known to get altatude sickness no fun. But she was not leting me know and was trying so hard to not let it affect her because she knew that this was one thing that I really wanted to do so sweet I love her don´t you. So at that point she was walking all over the trail and almost falling so I said "babe you ok" ya I am fine she says well that is not a usual answer from Jenna so I said to her "lets go back down and hang out in the hot springs and what not" and she says no no but I insisted. So we start our way down and she tells me that she was not feeling good the whole time and I knew it is that not amazing. It is like that movie What Woman Want. So we get to the bottom and can not get a refund on the 54 dollars we just spent on the park permets and a stay at the top of the mountain. So we look in the money bag and figure that with a stay at the hotel that we stayed at the night before and the bus ride back to San Isidro we had 1500 colones left (3 dollars U.S.). Humm we said what should we do the hot springs was 3 dollars per person so we said lets do it anyhow mabe they will give us a discount. NOPE and it was more like a pool with some hot water in it and it was warm out that day anyhow. So insted we sat on a bridge for about 2 hours and watched the beautiful day go by it was probably the best day yet the river was moving so swiftly and then out of nowhere some horse came and was eating on the bank of the river it was awsome. But that is not all after that we said lets go all out and get 2 ice creams so we did that we both had a cone with the chocolate on the inside you know the ones we like so much Janine. The I went to call my mom and thank her for giving birth to me and she did not answer like the whole trip love you mom. But despite fighting off the crowd of young american kids that were in this small town painting the school house I was able to call and my mom did answer. We had 4 min left on the card and it just cut us off so bye mom and I love you. Well that was about it o ya the birthday dinner consisted of you ready for this it was amazing BEANS, TOP ROMAN, AND HOT TORTILLAS. It was good because it was the first time having hot top roman on the trip and then the owner of the hotel was very nice and gave us some homemade bread that was really good so we made out like bandits that night well we love you all and are trying to get to this coffee place now wish us luck .

Jenna and Trey, George and I loved your post this morning. It was great. I was worried about Jenna and altitude sickness and I think you did what you had to do to come off the mountain. And Jenna, how sweet of you to try to hang in there for Trey. He is right, you are sweet, that's just one of the many reasons why we love you! Regardless of the plan change, it sounds like your day turned out to be an awesome relaxing birthday for Trey. Darn, I can't believe you couldn't get your money back! I am glad you finally got to talk to your mom. She was freaking out that she kept missing your calls. We can't wait to see your climb pictures. We will all be together today at your mom and Steve's. We love you! Take care!!

I love the two of you!! First I have to say, Trey I'm so glad you found someone like Jenna. Second, Jenna you're awesome and I love you to death. I can't beleive you attempted the climb. I know how you get up at Brianhead, I've seen you have to get oxygen...you're a trooper. I love it. Trey, I'm glad you had a nice birthday. You may not have had a cake, but you had ice cream and homemade bread, who could ask for more? Also, maybe you could talk Miranda into trading you cars for a day. The green machine is very easy to drive; she'll get a ton of attention, as it's very appealing to the eye; and, if she wants AC all she's got to do is roll down the window (and drive in the middle of the night). :-) Please continue to be safe and if you're coming back on schedule we'll be seeing you soon. Love you!!

Trey you are and always have been one of the greatest joys in my life. Thanks for choosing Jenna for you wife, she is a super tropper! Oh, I actually think it is quite funny that your grandma said that I was freaking out, I was but it is funny to have her write it. Enjoy!

Hi guys. Call us soon. Trey did you get our birthday card wish via your email? Check for it buddy. We are toying with the idea of meeting you all half way and hiking in those caverns. I don't know - you know Derek does the planning. Maybe in October? We love you guys and are glad you had such a great time. Our internet connection was screwy for a bit so that is why we stopped commenting - we always checked on you guys though.
