Thanksgiving...way late!!!





































Ok...so I'm back!! I know its been a VERY long time since the last post, but things in my life have been nuts!! Work was out of control busy and so has been everything else!! I'm sure you all can relate to that!! :) So, I am going to start with the holidays..way back to Thanksgiving and get everyone caught up on the Erwins!! For Thanksgiving we went to Beaumont and had dinner there with my family...then we headed to San Antonio for the weekend. We went to my parents land in Fredericksburg and hung out with our great family friends from Oklahoma. We had the best time shopping,eating, playing on the tractor and being with the family!! Kim and I ran the Turkey Trot to kick off the holiday the right way. It was only a 5k..but we were proud we accomplished it!! Here are a few pics from that weekend!!

Remembering Guatemala











Ryan and I recently had the amazing opportunity to travel to Guatemala with DBU the beginning of October. Our baseball team played a 3 game series with the Guatemalan National Baseball team at night and during the days we went to orphanages to play with the kiddos and shared the love of Jesus Christ. This was an unbelievable trip, exhausting, extremely rewarding and definitely something that I will cherish forever. Being able to show these kids that we love them and just giving a moment of our time, meant the world to them. In the short amount of time we were there, I grew to love Guatemala, its culture and especially the people. Words really cannot express how wonderful this trip was and I feel truly blessed to have been able to go. I was just sent this video today and it really touched my heart...so I decided to share it with you all!! ENJOY!!! Oh...make sure you have the volume on!!

Celebrating 4 Years in Boston







Ryan and I traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to celebrate 4 years of wonderful marriage. Our 6 day trip was jam packed full of incredible memories and tons of fun! We did just about everything there is to do in Boston and the surrounding areas. The trip started at Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, game 7 of the ALCS. The game was such a blast, and if Ryan wasn't such a huge Yankees fan....I would be a major Red Sox fan! The next day we journeyed on the Freedom Trail which is a 4-5 mile walk all through Boston that takes you by about 20 different historical sites. Long day...but very fun! That night we went to Cheers for dinner. Tuesday we rented a car and drove to Providence, Rhode Island to see the first Baptist church of America, drove around Cape Cod and took the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The next day we went to Salem, where the Salem Witch Trial of 1692 we held.....it was right around Halloween and the town was very eerie feeling. We drove up through New Hampshire to Maine and all along the coast, walked on the beaches and looked at light houses. Thursday we drove to Lexington and Concord and stood on the first battlefield of the American Revolution...very cool!! That night we ate sushi for dinner...delish!! Friday was our travel day back home...we were sad to leave but happy to come home! Thanks to little sis Kim for watching Bleu the whole week we were gone...you're the best!!

Brand new at this blogging thing...not gonna lie...kinda feels like dear diary!! :)
