He ain't heavy

My big brother is the quintessential nice guy.

He's the kinda guy who takes time out from his work day and brings his dump truck around in hopes that his beloved nephew might want a ride.



He's the kinda guy who tells you quite sincerely that he'd be more than happy to clear a day from his schedule, drive two hours to your house and help you move.


He's such a nice guy that he really, truly, thinks that Graham could have a bright future as a cake decorator.


Happy birthday Russell - we love you.

An uncle with a dump truck that is into avant garde cake decorating? Graham is a lucky kid.
