The next was in April 2011 when Rex and family went out to California to visit and go to Disneyland.
They also had fun dying Easter eggs, some pool time and just plain being silly time.
And of course some Southern California beach time.
August of the same year, Miranda and family came to Wyoming for a visit. More fun cousin time ensued.
Hanging out in our backyard
A trip to the fish hatchery
A picnic in the Big Horn mountains
In July 2013 we had a family reunion with my brother and sister and families. We spent a week at Flathead Lake in Montana. Besides cousins Rex and Miranda, our son and daughter had their cousins to hang out with also. We even had a new addition of a second cousin for Rex and Miranda.
Lots of water fun
They were pretty much inseparable the whole week
Miranda and Rex had fun entertaining the newest 2nd cousin, Leo. They were on the go from the minute they got up in the morning. They fell asleep watching fourth of July fireworks over the lake.
As I said before Miranda and Rex don't get to see each other very frequently. They do also Skype now and then. What I find interesting is that when they do get together or talk on Skype it is like they've never been apart. There is a few minutes of shyness, then they are talking a mile a minute. I ran across this quote, "Cousins are connected heart to heart. Distance and time can never break them apart." I've found this to be true for myself, my children and my grandchildren.
A thought to ponder: "In every conceivable manner the family is link to our past, bridge to our future." Alex Haley
