Five on Friday {Cousin Weekend}

It's Friday and it's about to be cousin weekend!!!! I am so excited to spend the weekend with my family!!! What are the top 5 things I am looking forward to? Glad you asked!

5. Tennis ball tag. There's just nothing quite like driving like a maniac around a pasture and throwing tennis balls at each other. I would say I'll take a picture, but that probably will not happen. 
A picture of post hay tag - another game we play
4. Dinner time. One of my favorite parts is when we all sit around the dinner table together. We still have a "kids" table and "grown up" table. I think we always will. 

We've got posing down to a science over the years
3. Horses. Duh. You had to know this one was going to be in here!!! I cannot wait to see my friendly babies!! They are just the coolest creature ever. 

2. Late night talk. We all sleep in one big room. On air mattresses. I can probably get a picture of this. This is when the serious talks happen. The talks about where we are in med school, relationships, where we'll be in a year, the stories the "grown ups" can't hear because they're grown ups, the nitty gritty of our family.
One year, we made a big fort with all of our sleeping bags
1. Taking our cousin picture. We do one every summer and every Christmas... an age picture and a height picture. And this summer I get to hold my hand up! Cousin #2 that's engaged.... even though it's not in the cousin marriage order we made 7 years ago. I think they'll let that slide! 

Have a very happy Friday!


  1. Seriously sounds like the best time ever! I am so close with my cousins on my Mom's side of the family. I seriously don't know what I would do without them!

    1. Mine is my mom's side too!! Its such a special relationship. Not siblings, but kind of like siblings? I'm convinced people don't understand it unless they have a similar relationship with theirs!!

  2. Just found your space through 5 on Friday and I love this post! Mainly because right now I am in the midst of my annual cousin visit and couldn't be loving it anymore! I am excited to do just the same with next weeks 5onF. I look forward to this time all year. All of your fun looks so great :)

    1. I am so glad to know there are other people who do annual cousin visits!! That is so awesome! Thanks so much!
