The birth of Payton and Makai comes at an interesting time for the Pace family as they recently moved to Costa Rica. Utah Valley 360 reported that after nine years of living in Utah, the family has decided to move to Costa Rica so her husband, Janson, can pursue an MBA degree. The family of six will live abroad for two years in a two bedroom home. Of the move, Pace told Utah Valley 360,

It’s a sacrifice, but we feel it’s going to be worth it.

While in Costa Rica, Pace says she plans to involve herself in the Church community and see how she can serve, all while adjusting to life with twins.
