There is nothing better than a cousin vacation. (unless you're talking about a totally kidless vacation to Costa Rica :)) My kids are already talking about when they are old enough to trade off between homes for a week or two at a time. "Is that 10, 12? What do you think, Mom?? Huh?" We have 10 cousins and counting in the same area of CA on my side of the family, and they are really good at getting together when we come to town. It is sometimes chaos, but it is nice to see them relating to each other, and building the friendships that their parents have hoped they would develop. Here's the whole bunch. We're just missing those Florida, soon to be Arizona cousins!
