Taking a long weekend to get in my first road trip of the season in, to visit my brother and his family out in Ohio. He lives just west of Cleveland. I always have a good time hanging out with my big brother and his family, but it is still a little weird to me that he wants to hang out with me, his baby brother. He is eight years older than me and growing up did not want anything to do with me. When he was 18 and I was 10 I just got in the way as far as he was concerned.
I still remember being in college, I was probably 19 or 20 at the time, and he was home for a visit and one morning he said that we should go to the beach. I was like what's the catch? You want to go to the beach with me on purpose? It blew my mind!!! Ever since then we have been buds though and we have had some good times. Many have involved the consumption of copious amounts of alcohol, believe it or not!
He is the proud father of four boys ages 7 to 19, so going to visit is always a form of birth control for me. It is not as hectic as it used to be a few years back. When the kids were little younger, they were all battling constantly for attention and his house was a total madhouse all the time. Now it's just the 7 year old that drives me nuts from time to time.
Should be a fun weekend though, he always has an agenda planned, he never slows down, always on the go!
