a great labor day weekend


So there is my family at my graduation a year and a half ago. I went last weekend to visit my brother Jon and sister-in-law Wendy who live in Dallas. I had never been to visit Jon without my parents. Jon and I are 10.5 years apart and both refer to ourselves as one of 2 only children because of the age difference.

I had a really great time this weekend and really enjoyed my stay there. They picked me up in their brand new BMW which we rode around in most of the weekend, and I got to see their newly remodeled house. We went to the zoo and to see Little Miss Sunshine which I am still laughing at. I also had the opportunity to meet some of their friends and talk about what I plan to do next in life. We watched lots of Arrested Development, ate lots, and in general just had a good time.

My family always seems a bit odd to me. I mean, I'm not at all close with my brother, but we get along fine especially now that I am an adult. It is definitely interesting to be part of a family with such an age gap among siblings.

In any case, I had a fantastic trip, and now I just have to gear up for the next one which is the one I've been waiting for since June of last year. I get to meet up with my fellow US-2 missionaries on our stomping grounds in NYC. There will be plenty of cupcakes, some fun at a Yankees game and just all around good times in the coming days. I'm ecstatic about it all minus the ridiculously early flight. I should have some good pictures to blog about through the next week, but I didn't really take any in Dallas to share which is why you get the old graduation picture. Such is life.
