Happy Birthday Bryan!

We are celebrating our son Bryan’s birthday today. Yesterday was his 31st birthday…..what???? I couldn’t be right there……but yes, it has been 31 years…..my Mom used to tell me in the short amount of time I had her after Bryan was born, “it will go too quickly”, enjoy all of it!  How right she was…..

This is one of my most treasured photos…….I didn’t get many  more before she left us…..

Here he is on his first birthday….

My Dad took him to meet his favorite superhero in November of that same year….”Spidey” was going on  break at the mall, Pop-Pop made sure it wasn’t before Bryan got to meet him!  My Dad is on the far right….Dad passed a month later….

Here was my Mom’s favorite photo of him….I have to agree, it is priceless!   He is 6 months old here, he was bruiser, walked at 9 months!

His love for dogs started early, this is Bry and Corkey, on their first day together, she was HIS dog, no doubt about it!

And of course with Abbey girl earlier this year….

His other love as a child….Pop Warner Football!

   Bryan has grown up to be a man any parent would be proud to call their own!  I know I have had help from above in guiding him to become the incredible, loving person he is!!!!!  We love you son!

Bryan was an adorable little guy...remember when we dressed our kids in kiddie clothes and not street punk stuff? Little tiny kids in cammo and motorcycle t-shirts just don't do it for me. Give me Carters or Healthtex anytime. He's grown into a handsome guy. Hope you're having a fun celebration. Hobby Lobby was awesome!! I may go back tomorrow!

What sweet remembrances of your son and parents. Your Bryan is obviously very loved! I'm betting he is equally as proud to be your son.
