Blue Ridge Family Visit

Growing up I was very close with my cousins on my Dad’s side of the family.  We all were about the same age and didn’t live too far from each other (most of the time).  One of my cousins, Tricia, is 16 days older than  I am so we always had fun together.  We always did things together at family get-together’s, got the same Christmas presents, celebrated birthdays together, and went through many milestones together.  Going in to high school they moved to Florida so we didn’t get to do as many things together but we always were able to catch up when we were together.

This week they are spending the week in Blue Ridge so the kids and I took a day trip up to visit with them.  We had a great time together today.  Reese had a great time too.  I wanted to get some pictures of the kids together but Reese did not want to participate so I got the boys. 

This picture is deceiving. See the boys are about the same height and are the same weight (ok, so Haiden may weigh a little more) but Haiden is four, yes four, months younger than Sam.  Ha!  Can you believe it?

How precious is he?  He had so much fun watching the kids today.  He wanted so bad to be up and moving around with them.

I am so glad we were able to catch up with them and love on this sweet baby.  I hope we can see them again very soon!
