I Love Cousins
A busy day today - we have the kid's 3 cousins coming to stay for the weekend today ( so lovely!), so I'm getting busy doing all those things like cleaning the toilet and putting away the washing so that they don't think I'm too terrible of an Aunty.
I love that our kids all love their cousins so much. Every time we talk about seeing them, the kids are SO excited, and they all just get on so well together. They have 4 cousins here in Hamilton, 3 in Pukekohe and 1 little baby one in Christchurch.
We used to always go on holidays with our cousins when we were growing up. In fact, most of my childhood holiday memories have at least two cousins in them! I love that our parents made the effort to spend as much time as we could together, so that now, as adults, we're all good friends and have a close-knit family. I know I would do whatever I could for one of my cousins - because we're family - and I think they'd do the same for me.
Can you pick which one I am in those three photos? Hint: Look for the curly hair.
Our kids have good relationships with their cousins (although we'd love to see more of Baby Joseph in Chch! If only plane fares weren't so expensive...) and I hope that as they grow, they'll only get stronger.
Yay for cousins!
