Birthday Celebrations!!!

This year Ryan turned 26 on the 20th and I turned 27 on the 21st! I have to say this was one of my best bday's ever! Thursday my parents came up to watch us play softball and Friday we went and had our bday dinner at PF Changs...delish! Then it was off to Kim's apt for presents and FABULOUS strawberry cake! Saturday Mom, Kim and I shopped around Northpark and saw Mama Mia...LOVED IT!!! Ryan and Dad saw two movies....Batman and Hancock.

Ryan and I have a tradition of going to Bennihana's for our bdays...we just LOVE that place...great sushi and wonderful food! Man, were we stuffed after that meal! This was our 3rd year in a row and it was fabulous!

Sunday we had bday celebration with the Erwin clan at Pappadeaux! And that night we had the big party at Papa's BBQ with about 40 of our was SO MUCH fun! Afterwards a few of us went to Speed Zone, played putt-putt and rode go-carts.

Monday, Corey and Andy came into town for their trip to The Sudan and we ate at Cheesecake Factory! I seriously have eaten WAY TOO much this weekend and on top of all that...I have to get in a bathing suit this weekend for our trip to Mexico!!

I just wanted to say to everyone..thanks for celebrating with us, you mean the world to Ryan and I. You really made this bday special for both of us and we are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends in our lives! We love you!

Celebrating the 4th in Fredericksburg

For the 4th of July, we loaded up the Expedition with 3 adults and 2 pups and headed down to my parents ranch in Fredericksburg, TX! We left Friday morning and got to the ranch around noonish to meet my parents and their pup Scout. We fixed sandwiches and rode around on the mule exploring the property. Mom, Kim and I headed into town to do a little shopping and left the dogs, Dad and Ryan to work out on the land. We ate dinner at Mamacitas and watched fire works with some friends.

Saturday Dad and Ryan headed out to the ranch early to work on clearing more land. They are such hard workers! Mom, Kim and I headed into town and went to some of our favorite shops...we work real hard too!! :) Then we headed out to the ranch to fix the boys lunch and give them a break. That afternoon we went to Woodrose and Becker vinyards, listend to some live music and had a great time! Then we all went swimming at the hotel and got ready to do some boot scootin' in Luckenbock. Dad twirled all his girls around the dancefloor and Ryan just watched....he isn't much of a country dancer. We had a really fun time!!

Sunday we all worked out on the land, clearing out cedar trees, vines from trees and all other kinds of stuff. I know what you are thinking...there is no proof in the pictures that I was working on the land.....but somebody had to be the photographer...right????? :)

We had a great weekend for sure! I LOVE getting to spend time with my family and playing and working on the land is so much fun! Hope everyone had a FABULOUS 4th just like we did!!!
