For his 8th birthday, Ryder and Daddy flew back to Indiana to visit the Cardinal's, Grandma Hutton and to experience Purdue University on a Fall football game day.
Nothing like continuing family traditions, reestablishing & building on lifelong relationship, creating new memories and enjoying some quality Daddy & Son time.

Ryder & Bryson were born days apart while we were neighbors in Memphis, TN. They have remained great friends and look forward to their time together. They have established a rich friendship that will last.

Given the opportunity, I believe Ryder would have verbally committed to Purdue. Let the brainwashing and recruiting commence.

We don't know who enjoyed the trip more, Daddy or Ryder? Either way, they both had a blast and will have these memories and traditions for ever.
