Adam was born last but not least

My littlest brother (in age and size ... oh ya I went there) was born today over 20 years ago. What are you now 22?
He is seriously the personality mix of
Jeff Probst and
Ty Pennington and he even makes his own...furniture out of snow skis


he loves john deere but won't admit it...
but he must love John Deere because he bought a green and yellow backpack, the fact it said North Face on it I am sure is irrelevant.

he thinks I have the greatest husband in the world and so is trying to climb this mountain as many times as Jeff... hey only 5 more times to go adam.
he believes apples are not just for eating.
we are both cryers and cryed like babies at the airport the first time we saw each other for the first time after his mission in Korea. (he had already been back in the states 5 months, I was so excited to see him!)Adam speaking of missions in Korea... funny how all your missionary tags said North Face too.
as you can see in this photo he likes to carry a purse, but will claim it is a back back....
in fact when he found out that there was gear for dads he was so excited and said, "Sign me up!"
oh look there he is again with a purse...

he doesn't have any socks but if he bought some i bet they would say North Face on them.his bare naked feet on my wedding day
he is pretty athletic, but his rock hard abs really pay off at pick up sticks
the poor guy looks just like the girl on the ski advertisement at Purgatory.
he thinks he's got game... and he totally does!

he puts things off to the last minute like learning how to tie a tie a few days before he left on his mission. he even tied one for me.Adam and I ruin any theory that kids have to be close in age to close friends.
I love you little guy - Happy Birthday.

what a great tribute to your brother.

i love the relationship you have-- you can just tell how much fun you have.

not to mention how very cute you both are! :)

Jill said...

Happy Birthday to Adam, I totally remember him as the little guy at your wedding and even years before that!

You two look so much alike it's freaky. My sister and I are also proof that you don't have to be close in age to have a close relationship.

charlotte said...

I love little brothers! And you two do look so much alike!

Whoa! What a tribute. There's nothing like a man purse. Happy Birthday to Kristi's little brother...I hope you had a great day.

okay.. I thought that picture of rainier was taken from my side of the mt at first.. but I think that is on the eastern washington side.. I have hiked rainier too.. not "climbed" but hiked.. up near the glaciers!

Great tribute post to Adam!!! He really is great! Glad he has gotten to be a part of our family too!
Happy Birthday Adam and to many more!!!

Traci said...

Oh yeah- I think you guys look like twins too!
I think it's great you are so close- age should never matter, especially among siblings!

Mandy said...

This was so funny to read! What a great sense of humor you must share. Happy birthday to your brother!

I love Adam...not only is he married to my best-friend-cousin...but he loves to hug my mother in law (only because she isn't the type to be all huggy). He is soo funny and I can't get enough of his smack talk...too funny!
I can see how you two would get along. Both witty, funny and outgoing.
So does this count for the contest??? Because if I vote for his blog then, this blog about him would loose. But if I vote for your blog then, his blog looses on his own birthday...tough choice!

Adam said...

thank you thank you! always nice to get a tribute post from kristi. we have had some good times, kristi, seriously where the crap do you get these pictures!? that one of me hugging you imitating the skier is priceless.

clarification: john deere, it just kinda happened. don't know why..

clarification: man purse, actually a messenger bag. did you get the memo of coolness? pshaw!

clarification: i AM the coolest person I know and pretty much get all the girls...well just my wife right now...

clarification: im actually older then kristi, but for about 15 years now she thinks SHE is older. I think it had something to do with overdosing on cow tales, I told her they were dangerous.

Clarification: previous clarification is false and I am in fact 24, one more year and I can rent a car.

Too funny about the man purse.
My brother and I are 8 years apart - I am the oldest of 5 and he is the youngest and I am closest to him of all my siblings so I can totally relate!

Rebecca said...

What a great birthday post! Your brother is a lucky guy! (you guys are so cute together!)

Happy Birthday, Adam!!! I don't remember your wearing TIVA's at JC & Kristi's wedding -- but it was SO HOT that day that I don't blame you as the "little" brother of the day. Have a great day! Hope you are feeling better, Kristi.
