Sophia and I made the trip down to Oregon in November to visit big Ryan and Megan for Ryan’s 25 birthday. Funny to think that Ryan and I are both a quarter of a century old. As Sophia and I were driving down to Oregon we realized that Ryan’s birthday was our first official date. We went out to Ellensburg Pasta Factory. From there it is history. We met Ryan and Megan in Portland, Oregon at a great restaurant called Henry’s Tavern where we had Ryan’s birthday dinner.
We spent Saturday being extremely lazy. We watched a lot of football but did get a chance to squeeze in a game of Settlers of Catan. For Ryan’s birthday Megan got him a grill. To put his present to good use Ryan and Megan had a big barbecue at their home where both the Loy and Ward families came over. Kyle, Ryan’s youngest brother is the same age of Andrew and is a Senior in High School. Due to Andrew and Kyle being so close in age I feel like Kyle at times is my younger brother. Love the kid. Kyle had a new addition to the Ward family in his Tattoo as seen below.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him
Good scripture choice though Kyle. I just wish you put it on the lower part of your back!
Sophia and I spent Thanksgiving at her Bestefar’s home in Kent. It was a great afternoon of good food, terrible football games and entertaining game of Scattegories which I would have won if we finished but Sophia said we tied.
