Canopy Tour

Hey Everyone!!

Happy Thursday! I can't believe the weekend is almost here! So exciting. I have been looking forward to the weekends more and more lately. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the weather is finally cooling off here in Germany, and you can actually be outside for more than 3 minutes without profusely dripping in sweat... ya, I think that's it!

One fun thing I have been wanting to share with you guys was of a canopy tour we did while we were in Costa Rica. My brother, Jon, and I took an afternoon tour with a group called Canopy Safari. Jon and I did this exact same tour when we were in Costa Rica during our honeymoon and we really enjoyed it so we thought we'd try it again. Come to find out, they had actually put up a couple more canopies and one of the highest lines they had was over 300 feet above the ground. Thats 3 football fields y'all!! Thank goodness I am not utterly terrified of heights.

Here are some of the pictures I wanted to share. There are quite a few so bare with me...

Me getting ready for the first zip line.

Jon gearing up!

And away we go!

What a goof!

Can you see me?

Jon lovin' life!

Look how little we are!
This was one of the highest canopies.

We were really zooming!

High up in the tree tops!
My brother, Jon, and me.

If you look very closely you can see Jon.

And me.

What a wild ride that was! It is definitely something I will do again!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
One more day til Friday!!

Is This Thing On?!?


Is anyone out there?!?

WOW! Has it really been almost two months since my last post? I can't believe it! Time REALLY does fly by... even when you're not doing anything exciting! And we have NOT been doing anything too exciting in the last couple of months, which explains my lack of blogging.

How are you all?? I hope everyone in blogland is FANTASTIC!

Yesterday I went shopping with one of my buds. We stopped by the thrift store on base in search of some "not so classy" white trash wear.

You see... Jon and I are throwing our first annual WHITE TRASH BASH this Saturday and to attend you must come dressed for the part. Needless to say the thrift store did not disappoint! We made out like fat rats, with Power Rangers sheets (to cover the furniture of course) and jean vests in tow! Yup you read the right... Jean vests!!

But what was even more awesome, was that I met a blog follower of mine. It was so neat to meet someone in person who actually reads my blog and finds it interesting enough to continue reading. So on her behalf I decided to get back on the ole blog and update y'all on what is going on in our lives! Which sadly is a whole lotta nothin! (You see, I'm totally getting into this white trash talk, so that I can be ready for our bash on Saturday.)

Since it has been a while I'll fill you in on what we've been doing here at The Adventures of Jon and Steph.

Jon and I went to Munich with several people from his office. There we saw the Passion Play which only plays every 10 years. It's really an awesome thing to see because the entire town of Oberammergau, Germany is involved in the play. The town suffered many deaths during the 1630's black plague, and made a vow to God to perform the Passion Play every 10 years if God would spare them from the plague. This was their 41st production.
They did an absolutely fantastic job re-enacting the Passion of the Christ.

We also had the chance to visit the downtown area of Munich.

My parents took us on a family vacation to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. We have gone as a family for over 14 years now. Sadly last year was the only year I wasn't able to go, so it was a real treat to be able to be there with my family this year.

We had an amazing time sitting on the beach and hiking through the forest.

Workin, workin, workin!!

And of course this weekend will be a-whole-nother adventure with our bash! Which of course we'll have pictures to share after the big event.

For now I am getting back to what I do best and that's cuttin' some hair!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday.
Glad to be back to blogging and hopefully we'll have some exciting adventures to blog about soon!
