This is the first time all of us cousins have been together at the same time. We had a great time with our extended family, about 40 of us gathered all together, and that’s not even all of us. Most of these people I hadn’t seen in many, many years, if I’d even met them at all. It was about four and a half hours of hanging out, eating, and laughing (and lots of picture taking). Towards the end we sang two hymns and there was a lot of tearing up in the room. I love my family and am so thankful for this all too brief time together.
