Our family reunion this weekend is with J's dad's side. He's one of eleven. Sheesh. Over 100 people, J's got 60 cousins. I can't even name them all. I just heard there will be 40 children under the age of 10. My kids' second (?) cousins. Fun, but also total chaos. Luckily, it's just every 5 years. I don't know if I could do this every year!

In our own families, there are 9 grandkids on each side. So my kids have plenty of cousins that we see usually about once a month. Good times, for sure.

You're so lucky to see so much family so often--once a month is great! That reunion sounds chaotic, but memorable.

My two boys are likely to have only two first cousins, but Scooter got to play with second cousins from both sides of my family this past weekend, which was great to see. One of them is only two months older. Thumper will have one who's about six months younger, so the next family reunion with that part of the family should be fun for both boys.

T. and L. have some second cousins they love to see, too, but they don't get the chance too often. I think cousin relationships/friendships are truly so unique!
