I was going through the 1300+ pictures that I took at my brother's wedding and immediately this one caught my eye.  I love it for so many reasons.  I love that my two year old nephew will fold his arms and look tough just like the rest of the boys.  I love that Andy and my brothers are trying not to laugh at the two year old looking tough.  And I love seeing Andy in a suit.  But most of all I love this picture because of the brothers.  I am grateful that my brothers treat Andy like a brother.  I am grateful that they can hang out and laugh and joke around with each other.  I am glad that when we all get together, they can go and talk and hang out just like brothers should.  I love this picture!
