Happy Birthday Tina!

Today is my older brother, Tanner's, birthday. He is the big 3-1. Crazy to me. I thought it would be appropriate to list some of my favorite, and not so favorite memories of him on here...

-Playing rummie on my dad's boat and eating doritos and drinking mountain dew-because that was our diet on the boat

-The time we went to Lake Cumberland and we went to look at the jet ski's which were tied off the back of the boat and his was submerged about 2 feet underwater

-Dancing with my brother at his wedding

-The time he tried to teach me how to drive (when HE had just learned) but he gave up when I couldn't figure out how to start the truck...hey! It was a stick!

-Watching him, WOW, Connor, and Seager jump on the trampolene...and almost break it

-The time he fell off the dock while getting on the boat, right after he took a shower, with all his toiletries still in his arms, at 10 o'clock at night

-The worst trip to Mohican ever...he lost his glasses in the water and our step dad fished them out of 5ft of "rapids" style water...still a miracle to this day!

-the horrific 4 wheeler accident...it will forever be emblazened in my mind

-When we dressed up like Bruce Springsteen and Cindy Lauper for halloween...we were the coolest kids ever

-one word...YAWNING

-Watching him the first time I saw him as a FATHER

I don't know where I would be without my big brother...while we fought a lot, and I mean a lot, I know that no matter what, he is there for me...just like that time my freshman year in high school when he pushed my jerk of an ex-boyfriend in the hallway and told him to quit messing with me...or how when Kevin and I were having problems, I knew he had my back. We may not talk a lot, but we have a connection that can't be described and I love the shit out of him...plus he helped to produce one of the cutest kids in the world!
