Riley is 8...and obsessed with basketball !

Being goofy

Blowing out the candles

I can't believe this kid is 8 already...

This year Delon and I took Riley "out" for his birthday. He chose to go and eat at Aggy's, browse through a few sporting goods stores, and pick up a few Basketball Jerseys. It's funny, Delon was always worried these boys would not enjoy the game of basketball like he he knows that he's created a couple of monsters. We have 4 basketball hoops in the house and one outside, and I still don't think it's enough.

It was a lot of fun to spend some time with Riley one on one. We decided to do that this year with the kids and give them a night out where they get to pick what to do and where they want to eat. I hope Riley knows how much we love him, even when he gets out of control. We're really proud of him and his teachers at school can't say enough about him and how much he's improved.

Happy Birthday Riley we love you and can't wait for you to be baptized !

Riley you are the man!! Happy Birthday!! WE can't hardly wait to come up and be there at your Baptism. And Basketball??, has there ever been any other sport in the Mortimer household?? Just like it was football in ours. You go with what you know. They'll be great!
