Family is a constant..... constantly changing

So now that I am back at work and life is about to return to normal, it is time for an update.

My cousin Kaitlyn was extremely beautiful at her reception, every woman deserves to look that good at theirs.

At the reception I told my cousin Karolyn to load up her plate with food so that I could eat off of hers and wouldn't have to wait in line. Her immediate reply was "Yep thats my cousin, hasn't changed a bit!" That made me feel special in some wierd way.

My cousin Michael's children and mine got along like they were best friends, kinda scary, it's almost like the cycle starts all over. Hopefully my son won't be beating the crap out of HIS cousins in the future. I don't remember doing it myself, but there is video.

Speaking of Michael, we only stayed up late one night playing video games, also proving the rivalry(does anybody know who started it? I dont have a clue) is alive and well. I am not sure how healthy it is, but it's been over a quarter of a century, how bad could it be?

I have proved that you can drive 900 miles each way with a five and seven year old and they don't have to fight. Don't ask me how that happened, I think it was a fluke and probably won't happen again.

My father and uncle only fought over the dinner tab for about five minutes. I even said I was going to pay before we got there. But obviously my opinion doesn't matter.

My Grandparents are doing well they may not like to be away from home but they make the most of it when they are. As a side note my wife has done a very good job of making Grandmas rolls(did you know that they take all day? I didn't)

But onto the point of this post. My family has scattered across the country and it is rare that I see any of them. Distance and time are only units of measure. Family is a constant it doesn't matter how long it has been or how far apart you are, when you get together it's like nothing has changed. Except for the fact that everybody has grown older, there are new additions to the family to be met and loved, and the comfort that comes from being around people that you have known your whole life.......

p.s. Pictures will follow later
