Cousins, Cousins, Cousins: Building Family Bonds

My boys spent their Friday with their cousins-- lots of them!

We started out the morning with a drive to the Rhode Island shoreline to watch my sister's two boys.  We ended up spending the whole day and the five boys had so much fun together.

We walked to a nearby park, looked at the fountains, ducks, flowers, and worms.

We went to the library (which was three whole floors!) and my boys were so excited to find out that their library has the same summer reading program theme as our library.  They looked at books, played on the furniture and then we walked back to my sister's. 

They played with Legos, watched some new shows and learned how to play Call of Duty (I know this is quite violent and probably not at all age appropriate for my boys but they loved it and I thought.... hmm... time to start learning about wars!). 

Once my sister arrived home we took all the boys to a local playground and they ran, played, jumped and got all their energy out.  We saw spiders, bugs, birds, nests, and even a bird egg shell.  They had a blast. 

Once home the boys jumped in the lake and within 10 minutes my father in law stopped by with two of my nieces and offered to take all of the kids on a boat ride and tubing.  I was wiped out and grateful for the break so I sat this ride out.

They all went for jet ski rides (the first of the season for my boys), made up a new game similar to the javelin throw in the Olympics, and just had fun playing with their cousins. 

I just love seeing my boys having so much fun with their family!


  1. This is wonderful. I have dreams of someday having a "cousin camp" for my grandchildren. I have just one grandboy right now, so lots of time to brace myself for it, right?

    1. A cousins camp would be lots of fun; but it does sound like you have plenty of time to prepare for it.
