Birthday Boy!

Happy Birthday Ryan!!
Another year another birthday! Ryan's 23 today... where did the years go? The picture below was taken when I was home visiting about 22 years ago. My mom was emptying the dishwasher and when her back was turned Ryan climbed onto the open door ... I wonder if he wanted to clean his cup lol.
And this is him today... would you have recognised him from the little boy above?

I made him this card for today. I know it's not really 23 year old appropriate but this image of Jack reminded me of Ryan.

This image of Jack and his pup will be available this week along with another 2 which I hope to show you later. You will LOVE them!

Jack's little red wagon isn't so much red as orange!

Jack is such a cutie

Pup looks happy enough :-D
We're going out for a birthday dinner tonight to our favourite local restaurant then home for some birthday cake and more decision making! I'm getting there and will have some DT news for you soon :-D
Thanks for stopping by.
Catch ya later x

Oh what a cutey he is ..... Jack I mean ... oh and your son lol ... but I shouldn't be saying things like that! I am sure that a burly 23 year old would hate to be known as cute!! love the card, it is beautiful xx

From cute to handsome in twenty odd years!!! My daughter would love him especially with the tattoo! Love your card for your son, very cute and its great when an image reminds you of your kids. Hope you have had a lovely evening and stored up lots of memories.
