We’ve been buying a lot more organic produce these days, all in an effort to eat healthier. Mostly, my husband and I are the ones eating them, though the kids have been a little curious. One reason I’ve been able to buy more organic foods is that organic products are becoming more affordable. The price difference between organic and non-organic is becoming less for lots more products, allowing us to choose organic more often.

I can’t wait to have my baby boy see Puerto Rico for the first time and remind baby girl of some of the places she saw on her first visit to the island six years ago. It’s going to be great.

Our Puerto Rico Must-Do Wish List

Being that our trip is only a few days long, I’m hoping to squeeze in as many activities as we can. Showing the kids some of the must-see attractions in Puerto Rico and experiencing authentic Puerto Rican food is definitely on my list for this trip. We’ll have to see how much we can get done, but I know that if I don’t make a full list, it’ll be harder to achieve our goal. So, here is our personal wish list for things to see and do in Puerto Rico!

“Mommy, when Mrs. [Teacher] was talking to us about the Southwest region, she called the Rio Grande, Rio Grand. I told her it’s pronounced Rio Gran-de, not Grand, and she said, ‘Well, yes, if you were Mexican or Spanish, you’d say it like that, but if you’re American, we say Grand.’ I didn’t say anything […]
