Best part about being in the Midwest!!!

Pin It One of the best things about being back in the Midwest is that we are close to family. We are very lucky to only be about two hours from my parents, sister, cousins, and grandparents. I knew I would love being so close to them, but I had no idea Rory would like it so much!

Rory has 2 cousins (and another coming in September) and now that they are all older they love to play!  Her cousin Shannon is 5 years old and could not be any cooler to Rory. Her cousin James is only 6 months older than Rory and will do anything to make her laugh. 

This last weekend we went for a visit.   Every few minuets in the car rory would say, "I want to go to Mimi and Papas, are we at Mimi and Papa's yet?"  It got really old after a few hours!  

The whole time we were there she was inseparable from her cousin Shannon. They got along so good too, no fighting or anything (sometimes they get into big brawls too!).   They played hard too!  

This past weekend they were all about hugging, kissing, holding hands and having the most fun possible!

I think everyone likes to see Zin too. They didn't get to see Rory much as a baby, maybe a few times a year. Last time we were in town we got the car seat out of the car and before I knew it my sister had her out and was in another room with her. 

Today Rory asked me when she could go back and see her Mimi papa and Shannon. She told me they were her best friends!  It's really a treat for me to have my kids grow up around their family!
