|My Brothers and I!|
In case any of you reading don't know, JOHN is also my older brother's name (well, and my uncle's, my cousin's, my grandpa's...) in addition to my hubby's. If you were to ask my husband if he went out and got a girlfriend as the title of this post might lead you to believe, he would schmirk and then inform you that he can barely handle ME, let alone a girlfriend, too! ;) Yes, we are working on the "correct" answer which is, of course, that he's already found the love of his life, so why would he go out and get himself a girlfriend!? ;) And, while we are on the topic of too many Johns (guys named Johns, that is, not the OTHER kind), I would like to point out that John is ALSO the name of my SIL, Ali's, brother... So, her kids are blessed with not one, not two, but THREE Uncle Johns!! LOL... that's got to be some sort of record, no??!

in for fun!
Less than a year later, we had our "first" pic together at my cousin's wedding!! By then, Ali was becoming a regular around our family events and she and Bryan were pretty serious. Super cool for me!! Then, in August of 2003, I got to be a part of their engagement story!! Bryan was living in Germany. Alison knew he was coming home, but he decided to surprise her early. So, John (of the husband variety) and I planned to meet up with Alison and one of her sisters to hike at Great Falls. Bryan was hiding at their favorite spot and popped out, totally surprising her, and proposed! :) So, Ali and Bryan were official.
