(3) Younger Siblings

On a recent trip home for the 2008 holiday season I spent a lot of time with family, in particular, with me (3) younger siblings: Tyler, Kyle and Austi — each of them is unique and I have a different relationship with each. Below is an image reel summarizing me latest time spent with them.

Our nieces and nephews put on a “Nativity” play every year. This year, they were short a few cast members, so Tyler stepped in as one of the wise men… comedy

——————————> Break

Now, I wanted to break here for a second and introduce an additional point to this particular Blog post; I wanted to address the topic of “seeing your family members behind the scenes.” As siblings, growing up, we see the best and worst of each other. I can’t hardly imagine (3) people I am closer with in life than these 3. They know me well, and I, them.

I had an interesting thought tonight, that I find a bit funny too. For example, you often wonder what famous musicians/athletes/etc are like in person– rarely do you get behind the scenes footage. On that note, when it comes down to it, celebrities/rock stars/etc are just people… they have siblings, they spend time with family, they have inside jokes and hidden secrets amongst them. I find this funny because me little brother Tyler, in particular, is on his way to the world’s stage as a songwriter. His goal is the top in his own way (albeit simply a cabin in the mountains of Wyoming). I laugh when I think 30 years down the road, him, platinum selling albums, world tours, etc and I’ll have pictures of him way back when as a wise man, sledding, or, as the pictures below summarize, playing shows to crowds of 25… at random venues, in holes, in your living room, driving 17 hours to make $50. As far as I’m concerned, and what I try to relay to me younger siblings in person each time we talk, is, do whatever you want in life, just don’t forget you are a human.
