"I grew up in New York and we used to go to Atlantic City all of the time. I don't remember that specific day, but when I see this picture, it makes me happy," recalls Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Illinois), pictured here with her brother Michael.

It's bound to make a lot of people happy, especially Kelly's fellow members of the Congressional Black Caucus and other African-American leaders who take us on their own trip down memory lane.

Tune in each week as we feature several lawmakers' pictures. Smile and tweet!
