2 Years!

Today Scott and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary. It is crazy to think how fast time has flown. But I do have to say it has been a wonderful 2 years. I am excited to see what else is in store for the years to come. I am very grateful for the eternal companion I have. We still have many challenges ahead of us, but as long as we are together we can get through anything.

Thanks sweetheart for the wonderful memories we have made so far and I look forward to making many more in the years to come. Love you tons!

Memoral Day Weekend

For Memorial Day, we went with some friends down to Big Bend National Park. We all had a blast. It was nice to get away and be able to enjoy nature. Here are some pictures of our trip:

DAY 1
Here is one of the many views you can see as you drive
up to the Chisos Basin.
Here's our campground.

DAY 2

On our drive down to Santa Elena Canyon,
we stopped at a dike and took a picture.

We went hiking in Santa Elena Canyon on our 2nd day.
The next few pictures are some of the views you will see.

If you look closely off to the left in the picture you
can see the Rio Grande River.

When we were inside the canyon you could look back
and see more of the river and where we had
just come from. It was a spectacular view.
Since we were so close to the river, we decided
to sit and rest for a few minutes and soak our feet
in the river. Let me tell you, it was heavenly!
Here is Scott and I right before our hike. As you
can see, we are pretty small compared to the
canyon behind us.
Later that night we took a drive to the Hot Springs.
Even though the water was warm everyone
enjoyed it and it was refreshing.
After awhile though we had to cool down by swimming
in the Rio Grande River. It was so relaxing and very
welcoming after such a hot day in the sun.
DAY 3
On our last day, we drove home by going through
Presidio. Before we got there we were able to stop
at this Ghost Town called Terlingua. The ruins
in the picture below were everywhere. It was amazing.
More of the ruins on the hillside. Some people have
added onto these ruins and it looks like they are
living there. Pretty crazy.
The cemetery in Terlingua
Here is one of the views as we were driving
through Big Bend State Park.

This is still in Big Bend State Park and you can
still see the Rio Grande River.

Here's a picture of the Rio Grande while
in the State Park.
Overall, it was such a fun trip and everyone enjoyed themselves. The company was good, the views were amazing, and the activities were a lot of fun. We look forward to the next time that we can go again. We hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday weekend as well.
