Talking About My Guy

The main reason I keep this blog is for me and my family so, I am not going to apologize for this picture overload.

Today, was Ryan's birthday. Most of my posts have to do with the kids, outings, crafts or the new house. Well, this one is dedicated to the love of my life.

He is the youngest of 3 boys. Not sure what his goofy is face is all about. Maybe it is because he had to wear that awful suit. Mom?

Oh, my sweet guy. Someone who knows what grade he was in here needs to comment. He is asleep already, otherwise, I would ask him.

This was one of his senior pics. My parents did not like his long hair. I don't think his parents liked it either. But, I loved it. I still have some of it in a photo album.

Crazy to think that when this picture was taken we were already prego with Chickie.

Here is Ryan and his dad getting ready for some scuba diving.

OMG, This is the best picture ever. Swoon. I am so in love with this man.

Camping and canoeing in the MN boundary waters with his dad and brothers.

Mom, seriously, I have no idea how you handled these three boys. But, I do know, I thank you so much for helping to mold and make a wonderful father and the man of my dreams. Dad, you did a pretty dang good job too! You were both great role models.

Ryan is really the best dad ever. He has taught all the kids to skate. Well, almost, Johnsie, not so much, yet. Ryan has played hockey since he was 5 and has coached Manny's teams for many years.

Of course, he is an avid fisherman. He and Manny can go out and fish for hours. Nice catch Johnsie.

Whenever possible, those two are also out for hours snowmobiling. This snow storm was crazy. It was March 30th and we got over of snow in a few hours.

My life's purpose will be complete when my 2 boys grow up and become as wonderful of fathers and husbands as Ryan is. He is such an amazing role model.

I look forward to the day when my daughter's-in-law thank Ryan and I for the men that they have married, like I am now able to thank my in-laws.

And as for Chickie, Daddy's little girl, who isn't so little anymore. I hope that she finds a man who is as genuine and loving as her Dad is. Here we are at Arches National Park, in Moab Utah. Delicate Arch is way in the back on the left side.

This was last years prom night. We had no worries. We know we raised a responsible young lady. Plus, her Ryan knows what my Ryan would do if he didn't treat Chickie like a lady and with the utmost respect. -Chickie has been dating a boy named Ryan for over 2 yrs now-

Ryan and the kids paddle boating in some little pond in Santa Rosa CA.

Thank you so much Ryan for being such a giving husband and father. We may not always say it but, you mean the world to us and we appreciate all you do.

Ryan, you mean the world to me. You are my best friend and I am so proud to be your wife.

We've come a long way baby. Welcome to the other side. 36 doesn't feel so bad anymore now that you're finally 36 with me. ~Just so you know people, Ryan NEVER lets me forget that I am older than he is. But only by 2 months and 19 days. I guess when I was a 4 months old I was over double his age. Cradle robber.
