Family: Long Lost Cousins

A long time ago, my aunt and uncle got a divorce, and my cousins moved to Grants Pass to live with their mom.  So I didn't get to see them as often as I got to see my other cousins.  Nikki and Chad were the youngest cousins on that side of the family, and I have always had a special fondness for them.  I have missed them both, and tried to find them on Facebook a couple of months ago, but to no avail.

On Thursday, my Dad called and said, hey, guess what, Uncle Kenny's family is going to be at East Lake this weekend.  I said, yay!!!  There were lots of photos of our grandparents that I wanted to share with them, and I was so happy to be able to get back in touch once again.

We have an abundance of Karis, Kristins and Caseys in our family!

She has a tumor on her leg but is still doing well.

They are all the nicest people!  I thought that we were going back today and take them on the pontoon boat, and was going to take tons of photos then.  They decided to go home today instead of tomorrow though, so I missed out.  We did have a great visit, though I didn't spend as much time talking to Nikki as I would have liked (because I was counting on that extra day).   I am so glad to have gotten the chance to have touched bases with them again, and for them to meet my Cary.
