Reasons Why Cousins Rule


What an appropriate weekend to have my sister and her kids over for a weekend visit. It's the opening of the Dukes of Hazzard movie remake! Not that we compare directly with it, we are northerners, they are southerners. We know the war was won, they don't. Haa haa.

Other than that, the neat comparison for pop culture is that family and cousins rule. It is so neat seeing my daughter play with her cousins. As a current only child, she absolutely adores her cousins and cannot wait to see them so she can play with them and they can run through the kitchen with reckloss abandon. Now if that isn't a literary term, I don't know what is. Anyhoo, I just wanted to put a note in my blog about how cool it is to have close family nearby for fun visits to bring out the childlike wonder in all of us.

My nephew absolutely had a fab time with kayaking, jet skiing, boating and riding on a ski biscuit. It has been so neat to watch him grow up and experience the lake life. Although he has few words, I know he is so excited and happy to be here. And my niece and daughter visited and chatted away like long lost friends. It is good to see my sister and I know I need to visit her more as it seems she visits us here more. She is such a good mom and works so hard. We need to visit them next.

Well I must run. Here are some neat family links for keeping in touch.
