One of the hardest things about our move to Portland is that we are moving away from family. Much of my husband's family lives within an hour of us so we see them fairly often.
My family is a bit more spread out but we still manage to see each other at least a few times a year. I know that we will still see our families - and with the invention of Skype, even when we can't see them in person, we can see them on the screen. But still... I can't help but struggle with leaving them.
I grew up in Northern California & my mom's family was mostly on the Central Coast so we didn't see them more than 2-3 times a year while grew up - however, my cousins and I were very close then and continue to be so now. So I know that it can be done - my kids and their cousins can still be super close even if they don't see each other as much as we do now. I believe it!
So.. I thought I'd share some pictures of Drew and his cousins.
(Some pictures more recent than others)
|I couldn't find a picture of Drew and Dakota... so we get Dakota by herself...|
Didn't want to leave her out!
Pretty fun, right?!
I love cousins - they're like siblings without the fighting. My cousins are the best, my husband's cousins are the best... and my son's cousins are the best.
We love you & will miss you...
but we'll see you all soon!
