Tonight the whole gang had our last meal together as a family--for a while anyway. We went out to one of my dad and brother's favorite places, BD's Mongolian Grill to celebrate my younger brother as he heads off to Army basic training.
Yep, there he is! My baby brother all "grown-up" and ready for the next chapter in his life. Really he's just a chip off the ol' block as both of my parents were in the Army. That's how they met! Like father and mother, like son...

He has enlisted in the Army reserves and is on his way with a bright future as a soldier. He leaves tomorrow for boot camp and I wish him SAFETY and SUCCESS as he turns the page in this book called life!
