Riley...with buddy Jake

My Riley turned 9 January 22nd. Time flies when you have 5 kids! Each year for the kids' b-days, Delon and I let them choose where to eat and what to do. Riley usually always chooses some kind of sports bar...and then we go hunting for basketball jerseys. He is so obsessed with Basketball right now. Delon loves it...I find it somewhat charming, especially when he says, "Mom, you have to see this dunk!" or " Can you imagine being 7 and 1/2 feet tall?" No, no I can't...I would settle for 5' 10 though :)

Anyway, I never got pics of his b-day. I'm a little sad. It was very simple and low-key. We had a cake for him, and then all he wanted to do was play ball in his new jerseys. I love the passion that Riley has for life, which is only confirmed by the fact that he still tries to play even though he's wearing a boot because he broke 2 toes and pulled the ligaments in his foot pretty bad. That's another story...let's just say Delon feels really bad. But we are grateful for Riley and hope that one day he can be 7 and 1/2 feet tall and play in the NBA...I know, wishful thinking. :)

Happy Birthday little man!
