Cousins

Just recently Jackson had been asking me why he didn’t have any cousins his age, and I didn’t have much to tell him.  I remember wanting cousins when I was little, but all of mine were much older.  Once we were in Middle school we got to visit our second cousins and we got to be close with them by visiting with them for many summers in Cape Cod.  I’ve not seen those cousins in years so when I got a Facebook message from my cousin saying they were coming to our island for a visit, I was pretty happy about it.  Even better he and his wife have a son who is 5 and a half and a little girl who is three.  We were able to visit them twice that week and the boys were in hog heaven.

While the grown ups caught up on the last 10 years….

Jackson and RJ were fast friends!

Snacks and TV after a swim, the universal cure for tired kiddos!

These were the only pictures I could get of Miller and Grace.  It was too hard to get them in the same place at once, much less looking at the camera!

I’m really sorry that I didn’t get a picture of my cousin Rob’s sweet wife Irene.  Those of us that take the pictures never make the pictures!

We are hoping for a few more visitors in the near future.  Hint, hint!
