a surprise visitor

Saturday morning, we got a call from Joe's good friend, Brandon. He was home on leave and was planning to arrive in Idaho Falls in a few hours. It was a whirlwind trip, but it was great to see him. That boy changes diapers, bathes babies, and does dishes!

Sam fell in love with his Uncle Brandon, who knew all sorts of fun games and could read a good bedtime book or two.

That evening, Joe and Brandon headed out for a few drinks with some of Brandon's cousins. Joe got home shortly after midnight, claiming he was too old to party much any more. Brandon proved that we were now old and lame as he stayed out all night and still had the energy to go duck hunting early the next morning (I knew he was out all night because Sam was sick and I was up all night, too...although, I think Brandon and I had very different experiences that night. :)Brandon's trip was all too short and he had to head back to Oregon to spend some time with his family before he ships out to Pakistan.

Come visit us again soon, Brandon!
