Cousin Fun!

I took the kids back to my ol' stomping grounds when I first got out of just so happens that my brother and sister, and mom and dad have settled there. When I first moved away, I tried to make it a point to connect with my old friends each visit. But now, three kids later, we have had the tough choice to forfeit seeing old friends, and spend the time with family. It was such a great thing though, my boys are really getting to know their cousins. I have such fond memories of hanging out with my cousins and I am so glad that our family has blossomed and there are plenty of playmates for the boys when I go "home. Here are some great snapshots from our visit:
My parents' grandsons!

The boys just loved their baby cousins!


  1. Hi There
    I found you through mama's little nestwork! I look forward to reading more posts from you! Great looking family.

  2. Oh, your boys and cousins are so sweet! That's neat your parents & siblings settled in your old college stomping grounds! Stopping by from Mama's Little Nestwork, you have a new follower!


  3. When I grew up the whole family - all the cousins, aunts & uncles gathered for Sunday dinners at my grandparent's house. We'd play baseball or go swimming at the lake in the summer, and have all sorts of adventures. We still get together for a family reunion once a year. It's kind of sad that all of our kids are spread out and don't play together. My kids are in their 20s and my cousin started late - his wife is expecting in September!

    So glad your sons had the opportunity to get to know their cousins. It makes life richer when you have family connections.
