Homecoming #3

Yesterday morning Audrey awoke while in the hospital and I was telling her that it was Daddy's birthday and he is 30! Our nurse walked in during this conversation, went out to the desk, called Audrey's doctor and put things in motion for us to come home earlier than anticipated. Sure it was just a few hours early but it was wonderful for all of us and I am guessing one of the best birthday presents Daddy has ever received!

Audrey was a little bothered that Ryan's birthday cake wasn't the traditional kind that she is accustomed to. Instead it was a cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. There are only two in all of North Carolina (maybe three but they are only in two cities). We have friends that recently moved here from Raleigh and they have family that was willing to transport it here for us! It seriously saved like $15 in shipping! It was the perfect gift, Ryan was so excited.

Today is Ryan's and my 7th anniversary. We couldn't be happier to spend the evening together as a family. We will have many more years to celebrate on our own. I believe this is our most recent picture together, it was taken the summer we moved here to Asheville - 2008.
