Happy birthday, little brother

As I've written before, my brother Stephen has returned to our active family life, and we are all so thrilled about that. We celebrated his 43rd birthday last weekend with a birthday dinner, followed by a group outing to see "Singin' in the Rain" on Sunday (our present to Stephen).

Saturday evening we had dinner at my parents' house, and Stephen's girlfriend Trisha brought her son Reign, who was introduced to the tribe of boys for the first time. I'm sure he must have been nervous, but he fit in very well and the boys are already talking about being real cousins.
Make a wish, Stephen!
