Riker's Birthday Today


Today is Riker's 6th Birthday. Although we are going to have the big party on Sunday we had a good time opening presents with him in the morning (he got a fishing rod, a hat, and a minnow trap). I'm proud of my boy. He is growing more and more into a little man and his inquisitive mind combined with a general absentmindedness endearingly reminds me of his old man. At the park today he impressed me by figuring a way of getting himself on top of some high monkey bars. This simultaneously scared his mom and filled me with pride. Happy Birthday Riker! I love you (and like) you more each day . . .

Love,
Dad.

P.S. The picture is taken at the gardens in Camp Morton Provincial Park last summer . . .

I can hardly believe Riker is already 6! He's growing up so fast! I felt bad I didn't have time to read Iron Man to him today, but I will definitely have to drop by soon to do so! Pretty soon he won't need me to read to him anymore!
