Big Brother

Last weekend my brother visited us for a day. We only see him about once a year so it was really cool that his work sent him our way, even if it was only for a day. The kids always enjoy having company and Uncle Lance is no exception.  As usual when company comes, they show off the house, their rooms, and all their little tricks within the house.
 We went to the park near our home. This was Macie's first ride in the "chariot." She loves being outside and now that the weather has cooled off, now in the 90's, we can go outside on walks and bike rides more often.

 We caught Uncle Lance up on some home movies, played games, ate dinner, and talked a lot.
Macie loved him too. It was so nice having him here all to ourselves. I grew up with Lance probably half of my childhood. He's 9 years older and I looked up to him in many ways. He always had my back when Brooke was treating me unjustly. We have similar personalities and I feel we've always related to one another. I'm proud of Lance for being a non-smoker now for a little over a year, going to school working on becoming a nurse, and most importantly (in my books) not giving up on himself.

It meant more to me than most could imagine. I cherished every second. My only wish was more time to spend with everyone. I will always have your back! :)
