Kissing Cousins

My cousin Josh and the girl that he’s just hanging out with going to marry, Rachael, came for a visit, along with Josh’s son Dave.

Cousins Plane

Josh and I saw each other most summers when we were little, and then reconnected as adults. We’re actually second cousins, and the kids had a bit of a struggle trying to figure out just how exactly everyone fits together in the family.

Dave is only a few months older than Jonah and Owen and the boys are having a blast playing together. I think Kate would like for there to be a girl cousin in the mix.

Rachael and I met two years ago at a conference and hit it off. I like to tease her about┬áhaving a hard time committing to being in a relationship with Josh, but now they’re engaged!

Cousins Dinner

We’ve been doing a bunch of fun, touristy stuff as we are hanging out, like going to Microsoft.

Seattle has certainly put her best foot forward!
