Reconnecting with Family
I’ve been home for over a week now. The weather has definitely been better in Vancouver, but oh well
I have some family visiting from England, my aunt (my mom’s sister), uncle and their 2 daugthers. Another of our cousins got married over the weekend, and they came to attend the wedding. That last time I saw the older of my 2 cousins was back in 94, and the younger one a few years back, but we never really had a chance to talk. Needless to say, I’ve been busy over the past week. Its been a lot of fun reconnecting with them, since our mothers are sisters we been have a good laugh at their expense :p My mom is the second eldest, while my aunt is the second youngest, in a clan of 7 kids, we laugh at how my mom bosses my aunt around. All around though, it was just good to connect with immediate family again.
My cousins have been through a lot in life and those experiences have made them very independant. It allowed us to connect at a more realistic level, and not just horse around or be fake, if you know what I mean. Not to say we didn’t go out, and have fun, or stay home and just chill, or play with my kids, we did all that as well. I have to admit it was a fun week and I am sad to see them go back home tomorrow, but I will definitely keep in touch with them on going.
Now, gotta get back to cooking. Since they have been here I haven’t cooked a thing, just been going to my parents for dinner every night
