Cousins By Blood, Friends By Choice

This weekend was spent with a bunch of our cousins. Friday night we met up with Chad's cousin Nate, his wife Meegan, and their two boys Zachary and Landon. They were visiting from Washington, unfortunately we didn't get to see them for long since we got their in the evening and they had been at Disneyland all day, but it was still nice to see them, catch up for a few minutes and meet their new baby, well new since we have seen them.

On Saturday my cousin Danny, his wife Raina, and my other cousin Matt all drove down from Utah for a few days. We hung out at my Grandparents house, talked about all the pranks we did as kids, teased one another and I worked on convincing Danny and Raina to move to CA when they graduate from BYU next year. (Don't let the cost of living here scare you guys!) I love these cousins of mine, why do they have to live in Utah?

Sunday evening Chad's cousin Wesley, his wife Kim and their cute little boy Preston came over for dinner. We enjoyed great food, celebrated Wes's birthday, and played with Preston, who is the best baby he never cried the whole night. I told Kim we need to hang out with Preston more often so Chad will want to have a baby :) 

I loved that we were able to hang out with so many different sets of cousins this weekend. Cousins are so much fun, the relationship is deeper than a friendship. I instantly feel a bond to each of our cousins, knowing we shared memories as children, and will share many more memories in the future.

I love my cousins, I consider them as my sisters. I don't have any siblings, so they are definitely super close.

Sounds like you had an amazing time with yours!
