No, not me (I wish!)...my brother, Todd! Recently, I was lucky enough to fly home to join in my brother's promotion ceremony. He is now a Major in the U.S. Army and we couldn't be prouder!!
There's nothing like a visit with family to lift your spirits and make you smile! I get to see my parents again in a week, but I am never sure when I'll get to visit with my brothers so I was especially happy to see them.
The first night, we all went to eat at Yordanna's Pizza and Pasta, which was yummy!
This is the huge calzone my brother Bill ordered! It was seriously the size of a baby :)
Saturday morning, I was up bright and early to help Dad set up the reception site. I had to get my caffeine fix and boy was it tasty! We don't have Dunkin Donuts here in California so it's always a treat when I get to have it.
My nephews are growing up so fast! Click here to see what they looked like at Christmas last year! This is me with Jordan...he'll be starting his first year of high school soon. I can't believe that he's so grown up!
And here's Zach! Isn't he cute?! He had the great idea of creating a scavenger hunt for his Dad to do in order to find his promotion present! It was so fun!! We all sat around trying to come up with rhymes and clues...it's such a fun way to give someone a present.
My brother Bill and his lovely wifey, Anita! She was celebrating her birthday also so my brother took her to New York for a little getaway. I blogged about their wedding here!
My brother Todd with his military brothers. These guys played a big part in supporting and encouraging him while he was serving in Iraq and throughout his career in the military.
Getting his new Major gear!
Bill, Todd, and me! We really missed our other brother John, but he had commitments he just couldn't get out of.
Food and cake at the reception!
I love my family so much!
PS - Todd reads my blog so I'm sure he was anxiously awaiting this post...happy, big brother??! :)
