Brian's last day at home before leaving for the Army

Long Beach Island, New Jersey — August 2002


Colin and Brian have a moment of quality time on Brian's last morning as a civilian.

On the way to his farewell lunch, Brian shares the back seat...

...with Cecilia...

...and Colin, who will soon be the only son at home.

Lunch has a serious tone...

...as Shorty gives Brian some pointers.

Back at the house, it's time for group photos — even Bucket looks melancholy.

Okay, let's all try to smile...

...c'mon, Bucket, it'll be okay!

It's not easy to release a son into the world.

Colin, Shorty, and Brian share a manly bonding ritual. Ahhhhh!

Today, the family. Tomorrow, brave new world!
