That Chilean Brother of Mine


Ok, so he's not really Chilean. But he's been in Chile for a year; that counts for something right?
 I have missed this fool for a year now, only getting to see his face through Skype, so you can imagine my excitement when he finally came home. I was as happy to see him as Josie looks in that picture above. And let's be honest, that's a face of serious contentment.
 Since I'm posting up in Georgia and my family is in New Jersey, we decided to meet in the middle which was conveniently located in Roanoke, VA.
The actual knob, where you're actually supposed to take pictures. Oops.
One thing to know about my little family-- we cannot meet up without doing something fun. I'm not bragging; it's simply statistically true.
Fortunately, the AT passes right outside of Roanoke so we hit up the trail and hiked out to McAfee Knob; apparently it's the most photographed place on the AT. But we took all of our pictures at the wrong place, typical.
I love my family.
