Favorite childhood memory..

We all have them but do we really ever think about them? I have a younger brother whom I grew up with, he's 2 years younger than me and when we reminess about our child hood he see's things differently than I do and when I listen to him talk about an instance I an get another take on a memory that I had. It's sometimes stange to be able to see the same time period through someone else's eyes, we both saw or felt the same thing but we remember it a little differently and it makes for a really interesting conversation between us.

I was telling my younger brother that my favorite childhood memory is the firs time I remember holding him in my arms, sitting on a large rock down by the ocean and my dad taking a picture of us. If you can't tell I love my brother very much, have always been very close to him.

I used to keep that picture of us in my wallet up until a few years ago. He didn't beleive me so when I pulled it out of my wallet and saw the shock on his face, well it almost brought tears to my eyes.

The thing is, he said he remembered it too even though I was only about 4 years old and he was about 2. he said he remembed being cold, because it was winter time and that he liked his jacket. lol
