a few months ago ryan found out that he won an employee award at work for outstanding service for an event that he ran. his prize was a gift certificate for one of the specialty dining restaurants at the resort where he works. we all got together on sunday evening after work to enjoy ryan's special dinner and celebrate ryan's hard work. it was yummy! i know how hard ryan works because i see it first hand every day, but it was nice for his employers to recognize it as well. way to go, ryan!!!
