Weekend in Roatan

Last weekend, we headed over to Roatan for one last weekend getaway before the packing starts! We stayed at the Henry Morgan Resort in West Bay, which we loved! We had stayed there one year ago when Tom's mom visited, and we liked it so much that we went back this year!

This resort is an Italian-owned, all-inclusive resort. Since it is a pretty hot time of year here, there were some great specials being offered, and we were thrilled about how affordable it turned out to be!

Of course, you just can't put a price tag on certain parts of the vacation...

Like sunset walks on the beach with your family



Like first steps in difficult-to-walk-on sand


Like Zeke's first bucket at the beach


Like the elephant in the room


What a great little getaway it was!

Goodbye House!

This is the house we'll be leaving behind when we leave Honduras in June. We've made some great memories in this home. I'm posting the slideshow below to help those that have always wondered out of curiosity what our house is like, and those that might be interested in renting after we leave.

Easter Apple Hunt

We usually try very hard to keep our American traditions alive while living here in Honduras. I had hoped to make an Easter ham today, but the only 3 hams for sale in La Ceiba cost $50 each. I guess that's the price for importing ham! Tom made bacon and egg sandwiches today instead. :)

I also looked high and low to find packages of those brightly colored plastic eggs in La Ceiba. I had no luck. This was probably just as well since Zeke definitely doesn't need the candy usually found inside. I could have dyed eggs without the handy Paas kits. I even found instructions on the internet! But the thought of eating hard boiled eggs for the next 2 weeks was just too much to handle.


Luckily, the Easter Bunny did not forget us here in La Ceiba. It turns out that he does things a bit differently for us when we live in Honduras. The Easter Bunny brought APPLES to our house. It was so much fun for Zeke to do his very first Easter Apple Hunt. He located about 14 apples that the bunny had left around our house.

If a rabbit can lay eggs, isn't it conceivable that he might leave apples too???

Apple pie or crisp to come later!

Super Sweeper

Here is Zeke practicing his favorite sport. Look at the intensity on his little face. He knows there is dirt on the porch and he knows that it's his responsibility to sweep it up. He does this every afternoon. It's not his only chore around the house, but it is his favorite.
