I've been doing a lot of cousin time - on my father's side. ...and truly enjoying it.
Billy and Robyn were in town last weekend had dinner with 710 and some tall, drunk, Asian-looking man.
Seriously, what is up with how I look when I smile in pictures. Awful!
I had to miss a dinner with them earlier in the week that included David. That may have been a bit too much family at one table. Restaurant staff everywhere would rebel.....and rightfully so.
In the last four months, I've gotten to spend at least some time with all six of these cousins. The situations for the gatherings haven't always been the ultimate circumstances, but we've made the best of it and gotten to know each other more and more. Well, they've gotten to know me more and vice versa. They all knew each other much much more.
For me, it's a shame they're not all in town, but maybe that'd be asking too much. They've probably had their fill of each other, but I've been cousin deprived.
In October, I ran into Lisa and her husband at the airport. Lisa took this pic to send to David - who immediately dubbed us 'crackers'. His two favourite crackers.
I'm not sure we're that white. But it's safe to say we have little to no street
If you go through a year or two of posts, you'll have seen me with five of the six cousins. Laura, if you're reading this - we will need that photo at some point to complete my collection. Or your brother could just photoshop one.
It's been a good few years of extended family - and I'm hoping to continue that streak.
