Another busy weekend

We were away for another weekend. This time it was only Friday night and Saturday. Then we were back home. Boy this is getting tiring being away over-night every weekend. This is at least the 3rd week in a row we've done this. And we've been at my parents' house each time.

The occasion this weekend was a get together with my mom's family. I usually only see my cousin once a year (twice if someone gets married or something like that). She and I are the two oldest cousins and we're 18 months apart in age, so we've always been close. As we both started going to college we talked much less. Then we both got married, and we moved farther apart. We both have very busy lives and it's so hard to keep in touch.

They came with my aunt and uncle to my parents house. We were all going to camp outside, but the weather didn't cooperate. My aunt and uncle did bring their RV still, so they stayed in the driveway with it. We had a lot of fun. They all love to play games...card games, board games, word games, etc. I do too, but I don't get to very often. Matt will sometimes play with me, but not often. So I had a great time learning new games they'd brought. We stayed up late talking, and then went swimming the next afternoon when the weather cleared up. There were lots of snacks and good food to eat and a cookout for lunch.

We all had such a good time. And we vowed to try keeping in better touch. Only time will tell if that will happen. And we can look forward to the possibility of seeing each other at Christmas. Hopefully that will work out for everyone.

So, how about you? What did you do this weekend? Anything fun? (I should add that we spent Sunday napping and lazing about. Well, some of us, Matt did mow the yard. Ha.)

Well Friday, of course, was KEnny Rogers, and yesterday we had Cait's birthday party. I am dead today.

I have a cousin who is 6 months younger than me and we were inseperable growing up. Now, we hardly talk. It's sad.

My sister and a cousin of ours are only two days apart in age; they are still pretty close.

We spent the weekend unpacking from our trip to Wisconsin. And Matt's sister was in town briefly, it's always fun to spend time with her.
