Cousins

My siblings and I frequently lament that our children did not have the opportunity to spend more time together over the years, but I recently came across some pictures that reminded me that we made the most of the opportunities we did have. And the cousins got along famously, despite the age range, whether hanging out at home

or checking out the exhibits at Ripley’s Believe It or Not in Niagara Falls (on the Canadian side).

Here’s hoping that we can all get together again soon!
