One of my favorite things about seeing my kids with their cousins is to watch how they interact and to see how their imaginations come to life. We spent the day with my sister-in-law’s family and the kids ran themselves ragged with all the playing. For the six hours we were there, they barely stayed still but to eat their dinner. While they ran wild in the basement, we adults got the chance to catch up and connect.
I know I’ve said it a million times, but I love that they live so close. Since I’ve known my husband for decades, I’ve known his family just as long and there is something very comfortable about the time that we spend together.
