Ecuador!

it's friday at kelly's korner. this week's theme is share your fav. vacation spot. i don't know that i have a favorite, but i loved going to ecuador last fall (even though i was in the first trimester of pregnancy and threw up every night). here is our travel group (james' brother and best friend from high school and their now ex-girlfriends). both of the girls have all of the pictures from the trip (i didn't take many with my camera since i was sick and yucko, but i am too scared to message them and ask for the pictures since the breakups weren't too pretty. oh well, still a great trip!

oh and what made the trip so wonderful is that ecuador is james' home. he moved there when he was 7 and stayed until college. this trip was special for him and i learned more about him throughout the 9 days.

So cool! I love Ecuador too! I went during college for a study abroad in biology, it was amazing.

I also have a dear friend who married a guy who lived there for a long portion of his life. Not sure where he went to school, but they recently visited as well and she enjoyed seeing where he grew up.

It's a special blessing to be able to see where our loved ones grew up! Thanks for sharing.
