As we are traveling, I am posting day 17 a day late. Friday was a relaxed day spent shopping, hanging at my brothers home in New Jersey and barbecuing. Due to circumstance happy or sad, the cousins have gotten to see each other on a fairly regular basis over the last twelve months. We hope to keep up the trend of visits going to allow their connections to grow. Seeing them get to spend time and strengthen their bonds makes my heart smile.
