This time last week we were over in Honduras passing a little time in Copan.  We are only about 20 minutes from the Honduras border and then another 20 minutes to Copan.  It's close so we love to run over there when we get a chance.  Our Ag partner, Dan Watson, had recently returned back from the States and we wanted to meet with him and discuss the work in Honduras.

We found out that Monday's are slow business days so that meant many of the restaurants were closed.  It took us several tries before we found a place to eat.  We ended up trying a little coffee shop/ cafe called San Rafael.  I am glad we tried it because it was great and I'm certain we'll be going back.

We ordered the boys a strawberry liquado (milkshake).  I love how this place served it in a glass jar.

Ben loved it too!

Dan met us there and we spent some time catching up.  Afterwards we checked into a hotel and let the boys nap.  They both took long afternoon naps which meant we then needed to go let them burn off some energy.

Our first stop was Cafe Welchez so David and I could fill up on caffeine.  Here are the boys people watching over the Central Park in Copan from the balcony of Cafe Welchez.

my boys know that I love flowers so they both picked me one and Cruz stuck them behind my ears

Cruz snapped this photo of me and David after our coffee and dessert arrived.  It's rare that we take pictures of just the two of us anymore.

My delicious carrot cake and Frozen Maya coffee drink.  A trip to Copan would not be complete without them.

We then walked them over to the Central Park and let them run their little hearts out.  Cruz made friends with a little boy from Oregon that is living there for a year while his mom teaches English at one of the schools.  They had a great time playing together.  It was late and dark by the time we left so we just picked up a pizza from Jim's to take back and eat in the room.
We love Jim's Pizza in Copan!

Here's David and the boys walking to breakfast the next morning.

And here we are taking a tuk tuk ride- one of my boys favorite things to do.  Ben said, "mama, we are going super fast!". ha  Yes, we were.

After eating we loaded up and drove out to the Ag Training Center.  It's about 20 minutes on the other side of Copan.  My boys call it "Mr. Dan's Farm" and love to visit it.
The boys hiking up the hill to see the goats.  They have gotten rid of all the other animals and are getting out of those types of projects.  My boys were a little sad that there were no other animals to see.

Cruz, Ben, and a very nervous goat.  Wouldn't you be if these two wild ones invaded your home, ha

They spent the longest time playing in some of the empty cages.  Here they are pretending to be goats.

Dan met us there and we spent more time talking about the work and coming up with ideas of how we could work together in the future.  One of those is trying to target the Guatemala village of Churischan.  I'll share more about that in another post.

Here's Dan talking to Cruz about some coffee beans.

Our last meal there was at a place we like called Casa Ixchel.  Here's our family waiting for our food to come out.

Look at that happy face!!!  We ordered the boys a Funfetti Waffle.  It's a waffle covered with ice cream, bananas, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and their favorite- sprinkles.  Cruz did the happy dance when he saw it.

Doesn't that look yummy!

We had a great time there, as always.  We are thankful for the partnership we have with the Ag workers there.  We love working together with them and look forward to the ways we can share Christ together in the future.
