I just got back from a wonderful birthday weekend for my second oldest aunt who just turned 90. All of her kids and most of her grandkids and some of her great-grandkids were all there. It was a big bunch. I was, of course, a niece and my sister and a couple of other cousins were there, too. Cousins mean so much to me. Some in the group are super religious. Some are super conservative. But we share a really strong bond from birth and I love that.
The babies and little children were awfully sweet, too. My sister, who will soon be a grandmother, was practicing with the newborns.
It was a super long drive up and back. My neck and back are killing me so I am ready to go to bed. I still have to put some sheets on the bed first.
