Happy Father's Day to my Brother

My brother, Mark is three years younger than I am, and we are soooooooo different.  My children are 20 and 17 years old whereas my brother has Greysen who is three.  My brother and I have a relationship that we don't have to talk on a regular basis, but we would do anything for each other.  With my daughter going to college in the area, he takes her out to lunch and they get together for supper on the weekends which I think is wonderful.  The one thing that I have to say about my brother is that he is a great dad.  He waited to have children (which also gave him a chance to grow up) and I can't believe how protective and attentive he is.  He is very involved and that is really the way it should be.  It also shows because his son is a "Daddy's Boy".  I thought it would be nice to give him this card using a this adorable image from Mo Manning a perfect sentiment from TLC.
