Happy Birthday Ryan!

We celebrated Ryan's birthday tonight on our last night in Guangzhou. It's hard to believe my baby boy is now 11 years old. Where in the world have the years gone?!

He invited a couple of his buddies from our travel group and we went and celebrated with ice cream. After we were about settled in for bed, the hotel delivered a cake and fruit basket. What a surprise!
Well, off to bed for the now hyped up Hunter clan ... we have a 4 a.m. wake up call. We're all dreading that long flight home but we are looking forward to being back in our own beds!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN! I LOVE YOU!!! I'll never forget you coming into our lives in Ft Worth, TX 11 years ago. A lot has changed since then, but my love for you is still the same!
