Despite hearing about all these memories about my dad and his cousins he never hears from them now unless its a death in the family, and to be honest with me and my cousins a similar pattern has already starting to develop. For example when we were younger we used to see my cousins James and Paul every Friday and had loads of fun together. but as we grew older that all stopped. and we started only seeing each other at christmas time. and lately I have only seen those two cousins and the rest of my cousins at funerals. Is history repeating itself?
Anyway one of my aunts noticed this and decided that she would have a cousins party :) so that we could all get together in a more happier atmosphere.I thought it was all talk until i got a call this week to say it was happening.
So yesterday me and my brother got a bus to my aunts, and of course not all the cousins showed up i only have 6 cousins on my Dads side i don't have any. We had a lovely meal with yummy desserts. Rocky Road and Brownies :)
After the meal we decided to play a game of Monopoly The Simpsons addition! for old times sake and surprisingly it was a great laugh and we all left at about 10.30 ! It was a great night and i hope we all can continue to stay close like this in the future.
My Sis, Gavin, my Bro
Gavin, James, My bro, my sis head lol
The Monopoly King,
On the way back me, my sister and brother were discussing all the cousins personalities and came up with a few roles.
The Funny one,
My cousin Stephen is always the life and soul of the party and full of fun so he was deemed the funny one. sadly he couldn't make it last night.
My cousin Carl the youngest of all the cousins is a hyper active maniac when he gets sugar into his system. So we called him the puppy.
The Roofie, The Crazy one.
The Laid back one,
My cousin Gavin is the totally chillaxed and easy going one
This would be our cousin Rebecca who we have not seen for more than 10 years and have no idea where in the world she is.
My sister is another sheep so we called her the fluff.
And that is another part of my Big Happy Family
