Today family and friends gathered to celebrate Ryan's 17th birthday a little early since we aren't sure if we will get to see him on the actual day. He always asks to eat at his favorite Mexican restaurant El Ranchito. We love their food. It's funny how he loves Mexican food because when I was pregnant with him I craved tacos...Brian would stop on his way home from work everyday and get me a six pack of tacos from Taco Bell to help with my cravings. I think that may have something to do with his love for mexican food. It's hard to believe that it's been 17 years ago during the Great Blizzard of 1993 that I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. Time is going by too fast. I'm so glad that everyone came together today for Ryan...he has so many people who love him and support him. He is truly blessed in that regard.
