Today is Ryan's 25th birthday!
Ryan is our 2nd grandchild and 1st grandson.
He's a very important part of this large family
and, of course, a very important part of this wonderful family.
I wrote about Ryan in this post last year and visiting there will lead you to all the links from his previous posts.  These posts are full of pictures through the years and little facts about what was going on in his life at various times
so I'll just post a few 'through the years' photos here:

and talk a little about what's been going on in Ryan's life during the past year.  Of course he still has his sweet Miley.
And he still lives in the country in the house with the amazing views.
but he doesn't still work at Subway.  A couple of months ago, he switched jobs and now works at The Cellar Peanut Pub in Pella - a high end bar with over 50 craft beers on tap and top shelf spirits along with world famous bloody Marys.  As a matter of fact, the bar currently has bragging rights to the best bloody Mary in the United States after a national competition in New York City.
And the best part is, he loves his job!  
So now I'll talk about the Ryan we know and love so much!  He's always quiet and unassuming.  He never intrudes or interrupts.  But he's very social and enjoys get togethers with family and friends.
He's very agreeable about letting his grandma take pictures of him all the time (which I love).
and he's kind and helpful and sensitive to the feelings of others.
He's devoted to his brother and sister
and is the first to lend a hand when help is needed.
He's a wonderful grandson and a wonderful and important member of our very large family.  He's very smart, loving, and enjoyable to be around and we're looking forward to seeing him in Gulf Shores in a couple of months.  In the meantime, we couldn't be more proud of him or love him more.  So Happy Birthday, Ryan!  We're hoping it's your best one yet but only half as good as the many more to come.
