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).
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.
