and he happens to be the Best Brother ever!!!
Kevin moved to Florida about 20 years ago, and now he lives in Tampa. I keep trying to talk him into moving back to Missouri--but, he doesn't like our winter weather.
So, most of the time, we have to settle for talking on the phone, when we'd rather visit over a beer in person.
BUT, this weekend, he came home -- and that made me VERY HAPPY!
He came home for my Aunt Terri and Uncle Mark's 25th Surprise Anniversary party!
What do you think:
Do they looked surprised? We think they were!
While Kevin was here, we had lunch, went to the party, and hung out with the family:
That's Alec, Kevin, and Kate. This is:
Mom, Kevin, and me! This is Studly Husband:
TOTALLY GETTING BUSTED for being Anti-Social and playing Solitaire on his I-Phone at the party! Shamey, Shamey Studly! (He quit after I took this picture--and joined the fun).
BACK TO KEVIN:
We laughed, we ate lots of good food, and had lots of fun.
BUT, we spent this Monday morning talking about work! Kevin is a Computer Software Designer, and he's working on a little somethin-somethin that involves these:
OOooohhh, I want to share so badly what he's working on -- but, I'd be in big trouble! I can tell you this--IT IS REALLY COOL! I promise, I'll share more as soon as I can!
WARNING KEV--A little of that embarrassing, but heart-felt bloggy love is coming:
So, we spent the morning working -- but I didn't mind--being that he helped me so much to get the computer work done to get Cotton Charm Quilts up and running (and also because he's the Best Brother Ever)!
He makes me laugh, gives great "older brother" advice, lets our whole family stay at his house, takes us to the beach, to Disney, and Busch Gardens, he tries to solve the "Lost" mystery with me, he is a WONDERFUL uncle to Kate and Alec, and just an all-around great brother and friend! I mean -- it's no wonder I love him so much, right??!!??
And then (after all this fun being with The Best Brother Ever), Kevin left. And that made me:
I miss ya, Kev!
