Enjoying the forty eighth state thanks to POGO Pass + a giveaway

I love being married, but anyone who's been married for more than a few years likely knows that you can start to get stuck in a rut and date nights quickly turn to lots of dinner and a movies... 
Just before we headed off to Costa Rica I was contacted by the fab people at Phoenix POGO. They told me about their awesome year passes and offered to let Marcus and I test them out. Basically you buy a pass and you get admission into all sorts of fun things around Arizona for one year. There are some restrictions on what days you can go or how many times you cans go certain places, but for the price, you only have to go to a few stops before the passes are more than paid for. 

It was seriously JUST what Marcus and I needed. We've been really struggling with ideas on what to do and have ended up spending way too much of your free time on the couch watching Justified (anyone else watch it on Amazon, we're addicted!).

Now whenever we need to get out of the house we just open our POGO Pass app and pick an adventure. So far we've been to the rock gym twice and the Sea Life Aquarium once. Both were so much fun--next I think we might try the indoor trampoline park. I'm nervous for that one, but it will be fun to give it a try in our 25 and 26 year old bodies ;). 
POGO Pass is giving one of my readers the lucky chance to win two passes to use here in Phoenix!

la paz nature reserve//costa rica

Sorry in advance for the photo overload. This is the last of my Costa Rica posts. 
This was our last day in the country and by far my favorite day of the trip--additionally one of my favorite days in life. 

We woke up to monkeys on our porch and ended the day feeding toucans, hummingbirds, and holding butterflies...dreams do come true my friend. They come true in Costa Rica!

La Paz nature preserve was absolutely the most beautiful place I've ever seen in my entire life, and I've been to some pretty magnificent places, but up in those misty mountains, with pastures, and cows, and your head literally in the clouds, surrounded by jungle and some of God's most beautiful creatures. That's where you can feel His love with your eyes. 

It was a perfect day. 
The best day.

La Futuna Waterfall//Arenal Manoa

Our first few days in Costa Rica were spent in Arenal at the base of a beautiful volcano at this resort. The rooms were fine pretty plain, but the grounds were amazing--we spent much of our time in the hot springs enjoying the volcano view, but we pulled ourselves away long enough to go on a hiked down to La Futuna waterfall as well as went river rafting and ate lunch on an organic farm. It ended up being our favorite meal of the trip. It was so good.
