A Belizean Dream

We arrived back Friday in a full blown snow storm and our family adventure feels like a distant dream.  We were lucky enough to spend the last two weeks exploring Belize!  We had time on a small Caye, days inland exploring Mayan ruins and caves and then ended with a few days at a southern beach near the jungle.  Want to come on a photographic journey with me?

Leaf Cutter Ants
You had to be careful walking the jungle as these ants had highways everywhere, we had tons of fun following them back to their HUGE hills.
tarantula
and last, but not least, a TARANTULA crossing the road!
(embarrassed to admit, I stayed in the car... tarantulas jump, ya know?)

To sum it up:  My family and I EXCEL at going on vacation adventures, it is something that all three of us are excellent at... sorry if I don't sound humble, but it's really lovely when you are truly good at something!
