Ryan's Splash Bash!


Duck Cake: Take 2

Nana and Rachel smile with the birthday boy
(Aunt Em was at work and we missed her. She missed us too!
She almost quit her job so she could come. I am glad that she didn't. I'm looking forward to the free Blizzard hook-up next time I visit).

Ryan's big friends jump on the trampoline in the rain.


Bubble Fun!


Ducky Cooler


Not sure why they make rubber ducks that don't float upright!


Grandpa Bud came all the way from Florida for the party!


This time when Ryan saw the cake, he knew exactly what to do!

Our Lucky Ducky turned one and we had a huge bash to celebrate on Saturday with 30 of his closest friends and family! (We missed our loved ones who could not be here. We know you were here in 'spirit').

We played in his water table filled with rubber duckies, blew bubbles, and played outside in the backyard like ducks in the rain that lightly sprinkled on and off. (I am so grateful that it didn't pour). He received lots of nice gifts from his very thoughtful guests. He was very cute as he opened each card and pretended to read them. Ryan was his normal mellow self, unphased by all of the attention, just happy to be with those he loved.
