Ryan is 4!

Ryan turned 4 on Friday. I can hardly believe it. He is growing up so fast. He absolutely loved the bike that we gave him. He just looked and giggled when he saw it. It took him a couple of minutes before he even touched it. He absolutely fell in love with his bike after his first ride. He especially loves getting up to speed and them slamming on his brakes to see how long of a black mark he can leave behind with his tires.

His party was also great. He had decided shortly after his 3rd birthday that he would be having a tractor party. At first, he wanted to have it out on Pa's farm so he could play on all the tractors for his party, but as his actual birthday drew closer, he decided that he would like to have it at Grandma Debbie's. He also thought Disneyland would be a good venue, but we nixed that, much to his disappointment. I also let him take cookies to preschool on Friday, which he loved.

Enjoy the video of Ryan and Madelyn blowing out the candles on his tractor cake.

I can't wait to see how Ryan grows and learns this year. Every year is so special.
