8 years ago today God blessed me with the sweetest, smartest and most compassionate young man for a son. Everyday I am blessed in some way by Ryan. He is definitely my little buddy.
To celebrate his birthday we had a TKD (Tae Kwon Do) party at the studio where he takes TKD. It was the MOST amazing party. Master Bang (pronounced Bong) and Instructor Ryu (pronounced You) are amazing people and are so incredible with the kids. They played and interacted with the kids for the entire 2 hours. They played dodge ball, did relay races, and played lots of other games. Ryan got to cut his cake with a real Samurai Sword and was able to show off his board breaking skills by breaking a couple of boards.
And of course you can't forget the birthday spankings. Master Bang started off with hugging Ryan before he gave him his birthday woopins. Myself, daddy and Nana all got a shot in too. :)
Ryan is obsessed with Super Mario Bros. right now so I made him a Mario cake. He was very surprised and thrilled with his cake! Not only was it super cute, but it was super yummy too!!!
The party was unforgettable and will definitely go down in the memory books as one of the best parties!
To top off the entire 8th birthday experience daddy woke Ryan up this morning super early to surprise him with a trip to Lego Land. They are on their way now and I know they will have a blast! Ryan has been wanting to go for quite some time. I wish I could be there to see his face, but I am glad that daddy is getting to do something special with his boy.
