ryan's birthday was yesterday. he is nine. we had his friends over for a party last weekend, but yesterday was just us. him. us. fine, him. geesh.
i went in to school and met him for lunch, played with him for recess and read to his class, then handed out brownies. he had wanted me to bring strawberry shortcake but that was just too difficult. after school we went home and he got to open cards and presents (legos and hockey stuff). for supper, he wanted to barbequed ribs and shirley temples, so we went to bennett's. we surprised him with a trip to coldstone creamery for ice cream cake on the way home.
it was a good day.
