It's Riley World's Birthday!!!

I haven't exactly been keeping up with my blogging these past 2 months and I'm not so sure I would've blogged last night if it wasn't for a certain someone's birthday today. 

We've been building up to this day since Mother's Day was declared "finished"...right after he gave me the card G strong-armed him into making me. Before you judge let me explain. Riley had been talking about making me a card for Mother's Day for at least a month prior and sometimes you just need to make good on your promises. :) Here's what he came up with...



Yea.  Not exactly Hallmark quality but a Riley World creation...priceless.  

With Father's Day just 2 days before R's birthday, I had a little more pull when it came to him "making" G's card because as with all things Riley World...once the card is given, the occasion can be declared "finished" and we can move on to the next event. Mainly Riley's birthday.  

Oh...here's G's Father's Day card. 



In case you couldn't tell, that's G and R on the left. Although it's pretty obvious since he drew it to scale.  

I had a look back at the blog/FB posts I had written on Riley's birthday over the past 3 years so as not to repeat myself about how he has changed our lives for the better; made me a better person; blah, blah, blah.  ;)  I kid. Seriously, what I wrote last year for his 21st Birthday...still holds true. 

So today for Riley's 22nd birthday, we will be doing exactly the same thing we did last year and the year before and the year before that...going to his latest favourite restaurant with the family. 

He will have exactly the same thing he had last year and the year before and the year before that...2 bowls of plain udon with "no seasoning" and a C-Plus Orange Pop with no ice. 

He will open exactly the things he wrote on his birthday list and will be as excited and as happy as if he won the lottery. Because that's what makes Riley World tick. Exactly the same thing year after year after year and who's going to argue with this face...


Happy 22nd Birthday Riley!!!
