Sunday was Family dinner with Ryan's B-day as the theme. The family was over (Kym and Chris had to miss because of illness) but the rest joined together to celebrate. Ryan picked the menu: chili dogs, sliders, nachos. The veggies and ranch and strawberries I added because of some morality issues with balanced diets and children. For dessert, in lieu of birthday cake, which Ryan is also not into, we had a make-your-own sundae bar. Here he is blowing out his candles on his sundae and then another one wearing a special hair-hat gift he got from his parents. We did our traditional birthday quiz. Here are the questions and Ryan's answers:

Monday, we had his special breakfast of omelets and raspberry danish. He still had to work, but his co-workers were good to him. A group took him out to lunch at The Cheesecake Factory and the ladies that he supervises brought him a Suzy-Q cake, card, and $50 gift certificate to Del Taco. Here are the comments on the card:
Kelli: "Birthdays are natures way of telling us to eat more cake. So enjoy it! Happy Birthday"
Denise: "You're the best! Happy B-day!"
Michelle: "Happy Birthday! I feel very blessed to have you as my leader. Hope you to work for you for many years!"
"Happy Birthday!" from Lori, Merv, Kit, Heather, Bron, Kathryn
Amber: "Happy Birthday, we are blessed to have you as a manager and appreciate all you do!! Have a great day!"
Kathy: "Happy Birthday Boss, glad we can celebrate with you! You are the best!"
After work, we went with one of his best friends, Brigham, and his wife, Jenn, to Ruth Chris Steakhouse to use those gift certificates that we still had. Our girls babysat their son so it worked out for everyone. Fun times.
