Cousins

One of the best things about being at the beach for the first two weeks of July (other than just being at the beach for that long) is that we got to see TONS of family! Our beach house is nestled amongst 5 other houses that are in our family, so the beach during the summer is like a steady family reunion of sorts. Reagan got to spend time with over 40 cousins and aunts and uncles, many that she had never met before, and she had a ball playing with all of the kids.

She and her cousin Taylor put on a fashion show for us all one afternoon. The ironic part of this fashion show was that the girls had matching bathing suits that had been purchased the previous summer by each of their grandmothers without the other even knowing it!
Reagan also enjoyed playing in the sandbox with Taylor's brother Davis, and watching Caleb, her other Davis cousin, swinging on the baby swing.

Cousins Jordan and William kept Reagan entertained for days! The three of them together were constantly rotating between our two houses. Of course, this was when they weren't begging Kris, Jordan and William's mom, to ride the tube with them again!
Cousins Cassidy and Brice came down for a weekend, and watching Reagan play with the two of them REALLY reminded me of when I used to play with their mom, Melissa and her brother Frank, when we were all much younger. There is nothing like seeing the next generation carrying on some of the same traditions!
Cousin Bailey and her Grandpa Bobby flew in all the way from Nevada, and they made sure that their trip coincided with our trip. It was great to see them, and Reagan tried to spend as much time with beautiful Bailey as possible.
We are hoping that we will be able to make this same kind of trip to see family and friends again and again over the years to come!
