Our Sweet Valentines

Our Valentines Day was split into 2 parts. We had the opportunity to go and celebrate the 9th anniversary of Rancho De Los Ninos. We celebrated with some guapo (handsome) children and we were blessed to be served by the caretakers. They wanted it to be a special event. They invited the local church, Back2Back, and some other volunteers that have helped throughout the years. They served tamales, beans, and cake. We offered up our help, but the caretakers refused. They kept telling us we were their guests for the day and because we are always serving, they wanted to serve us. What a humbling experience. They also handed out roses to all of the ladies, Kristin Huber and I (Becca) received roses from the little guys and felt pretty special:) 

We also had a meeting with the director of Floreser. We were blessed in many ways by this meeting and once again so thankful for the people we partner with here in Mazatlan. The girls all gave us BIG valentines hugs and told us about their day in school! We continue to love every chance we get to be out at that home:) 
We love our little valentines!

Part 2:

The second part of our Valentines Day was our date night. A couple on our staff team has the coolest car ever and since they have lived in Mazatlan (since October) I (Becca) have wanted so badly to ride in their cool car. So, Rodo surprised me and we were able to take their car on a ride cruising along the boardwalk. This is our second Valentines Day here in Mazatlan and I will never get used to that sunset. 
We then had plans to go to the local fair that is in town. We ate lots of bread, tacos, brochetas and then Rodo insisted on winning me something. So, he starting shooting away. The prize was a little stuffed foot with eyes! We gave it to our dogs to see how long it would last. It is still holding together:) 

We hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day too.
