I fly home to Louisiana every other year. It is just so expensive to do it yearly. I wish we could though... So, we go every other year.
When we go home, I try to do a dinner with my cousin's. Not all of them can make it and we have such a great time together. We were all close growing up and it is just great to get together and see how we are all doing in person instead of checking on Facebook.
This trip we planned a cousin reunion. It was for all the first cousin's, their kids (2nd cousins) and for their kids (3rd cousins). And again... what a wonderful time was had by all. We missed the ones that could not be there, but we were so thankful for the ones that did show up... What a wonderful day we had.
I am so thankful for my family and even though I do not talk to all of my cousin's on a day to day basis, I love reading about their lives and seeing pictures on Facebook. It makes my heart happy!
This picture is of all the first cousin's. We grew up all so close. I love these human's so much!!!
