Anything streusel is a eye-catcher, right? Streusel is one of the best creations ever, such a fun way to dress up a recipe and give it some swirl!

I have been having a blast the past few days going through pictures from when my sister was here a few weeks ago! She came to Costa Rica to visit us for a week. We had such a fun time! It’s always so nice to have family time! So, I’ll share a few of our highlights with you!

Oh, and my sister, well she’s the best! Need a laugh? She’s got one for ya! She’s such a positive, energetic, and loving girl ever! Yeah, she’s pretty amazing!

This is her and I having dinner on the beach!

This is us at the volcano entrance. We were excited to be at the Volcano for the first time! We were really looking forward to it since we have heard so much about it!

We got quite a bit of hiking in, there is so much to see and walking through the jungle is too much fun!

There was a sign that cautioned against an explosion. It said “In case of an eruption, #1 Keep Calm” Haha, Right… Keep Calm, and RUN!!

We thought we lost my husband when we got busy talking and he was gone… whoops! When in fact he was on the other side of the waterfall! At least we got this fun picture out of it!


Cocs! Don’t fall in!


We had a fun candlelight dinner at the Wagon Wheel where we had the most delicious wood fired pizza! Yum!

This banana streusel coffee cake was a nice cake to make for our breakfast. I always enjoying having a sweet bread in the mornings to go with my yogurt, oh and because I just love breakfast. And that is reason enough, right?!
