I don't know what has gotten into me this morning, and don't even know why I'm about to post this, but here goes anyways...My brothers a year older than me are twins...Brad and Brian, or better know maybe to most of you as the 'borlups'! I took some family photos of my brother Brian and his family while they were just in town over Christmas, and while going through and editing them this morning, I had this wave of sadness go over me thinking about how much they're missed here! I am not one to let my friends/family know how much they mean to me, so here I am letting everyone know:) No seriously, we did so much together growing up, and I wanted to be with them all the time! They probably got so sick of me always tagging along, but I like to think that deep down they enjoyed me just a little! At 18 I moved to WA (they lived there then too), and even away from home I still turned to them to borrow money, to get me out of jams, etc...and I got to be with them while they courted their wives, and for both of their weddings, and was there to see their first kids as newborns! I even got to see Allison's ring before Brad proposed...( I think I was the only lucky one!) And lucky for me too, they both married girls that I just love!!!! Double bonus for me:) I have always wanted myself to have twin boys, (and still hope I do!), and I think it's because of the closeness we shared. Anyways, I thought it would be fun to one, let them know how much I love them and miss them, and two, I thought it would be fun to hear stories from my blog readers of memories you have of the Borlups!
Here are a few pictures taken while we were in WA in 2007....can you tell who is who??
