happy birthday to my favorite brother-in-law.
this might be one of my favorite pictures of you.
probably because we are in mn.
and on a boat.
and it's summer
and it reminds me of when we first brought you two crazy guys home
to meet my mom (you met dad previously in utah...can't remember why he was here...)
remember how fun that was to meet the family?!?
was that the year uncle doug had the bird flu from a spider bite?
(i can't keep all the crazy stories straight anymore)
and mom and dad put us all to work doing yardwork
(maybe next time we go back to visit the fam no one will be hospitalized or incarcerated)
