Judy Spooner: A 9-year-old's smile: priceless
Uncle Gary and Aunt Judy are in Chapel Hill, N.C., with niece Karen, her husband, Steve and Emily, 11, and Ryan, who was 9 years old April 17.
We're usually here around Ryan's birthday. He didn't mind the delay, however, because he knew he'd have another birthday when we arrived.
I asked Ryan if he would like to go someplace special for his birthday. Karen found a place just right for kids. It has an arcade, go-carts and lots of stuff, said Ryan who had heard all about it.
