Happy 7th Birthday Ryley!!!

Happy 7th Birthday Ryley!! Man, I have been one busy person this week!! Well today was Ryley's Birthday Party. All went good, except I wrote the wrong time on ALL the invitations. OOPS!! The party was supposed to be from 3:00-4:30 at Oklahoma Gold Gym. I wrote on the invitations 2:00-3:30. There was another party getting over with and they said they could sqeeze us in from 2:30-4:00. SOOO I had to try to keep 17 kids, most of them being ROWDY BOYS, quiet and civil for 30 whole minutes. It seemed like a lifetime. If you've never been to Oklahoma Gold Gym they have a huge room as to which you can just run wild. They have trampolines everywhere, zip lines, foam pits, play mats, a rock wall and lots of room to just run on padded ground. So I managed to make until 2:30 and let them go. None of the parents were too upset. Hey, it gave them an extra thirty minutes without their kid. Kaden had a ball, although he did not take a very good nap and he was very tired. He loved to bounce on the trampolines. Ryley got a new XBox game NBA jam and more money to get more games. And a ton of other toys that I have no idea where to put them. We just now got everything squared away from Christmas. Oh, Ryley is also starting to collect baseball, football, and basketball cards. FUN!! I tried to explain to him that some of those could be worth money someday. Anyway, it was a good day. My first child is 7. I cannot believe it. It does not seem like 7 years have passed. He is reading very well now, and spelling. He plays soccer, basketball, baseball, and in the fall football. And he is awesome at all of them. God has blessed him with some talent. Oh, I thought I would let everyone know if you care-- Chris' cousin had a baby on Friday, and it weighed 11 lbs 1 oz. C-section of course!!! And he is heavy!! Berek is his name.
