Ryan's Big Day!

yep, we celebrated ryan's 27th Birthday Party on Oct. 6, 2008!
we enjoyed some of ryan's favorite things,
pizza, salad, lemonade, jones & lots of balloons.
and many of our good friends joined us for
all the eating, laughing, and watching of iron man.
{ry's new favorite flick.}
BFF Ostlers helped get everything ready
we recruited Eric to blow up balloons.
I think that was his favorite part of the party.
Ryan, as seen here, was given strict instructions to do nothing at all.
{Thanks for all your help guys!}
And yes, there are a lot of candles on that cake, but not quite enough.
Ryan needed 3 more candles to complete the 27.
when you need 3 packages of birthday candles it's a sure sign of aging.
Luckily, Eric could see the problem, and helped Ryan out. Phew!

german chocolate, another one of Ryan's favorite things! (german, by-the-way, is not capitalized because its named after a brand of chocolate and not the country. I knew you'd be wondering.)

I for one am sure glad you were born Ry.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN! All the excitement just flooded back to me...:)
