We had a fantastically, wonderful visit with my brother Matt.
One of those fun, never run out of things to say, can't believe I haven't had you in my life more, where has the time gone type of visit.
He has definitely grown up from the little kid I picture in my minds eye.
I had the best time just sitting around the table talking, remembering our lives together and telling our new life stories.
Matt works in AK about eight months out of the year for the state doing a variety of things.
From making sure the crabs are of good quality when they come off the boats to monitoring fish as they swim upstream to spawn.
When I heard about the crab part I told him we watch Deadliest Catch and was what he did like that? He said it was similar except that show was mostly bullshit with all the drama Hollywood has injected into it. Well who knew lol
Matt had the best bear stories ever!
They kept all of us enthralled, but especially Caden. He kept asking him to tell another story and Caden would hang on his every word. Later he told me that he hoped to have adventures like his Uncle Matt did one day.
How cool is that.
He left on Monday to continue his journey across the US.
I was sad to see him go.
Maybe we will go see him in FL one of these days - his house is a stones throw from the ocean and it's a short drive to Orlando with all the Diseny type fun.
