Ryan is (almost) 13!

We are soon to be a family with two teenagers!  Ryan turns 13 on the 25th, but we had an early party for him last week because he really wanted a pool party and our pool closes after Labor Day.  It was a blast!  Chloe made the cake according to Ryan's specifications.

We also got this cool swan to play on.  By the end of the party the wings were missing, but the rest is still in good shape.

We found out that girls will pose for a photo a whole lot easier than boys will!

Lunch was very welcome after some good pool play.

Ryan gasps for breath after blowing out all those candles!

He got some really great gifts and enjoyed a bit of play time.

Then, it was back to the pool and some fun with Dad.

It was a perfect day!
