Love, Marriage, Siblings and Cousins

April 13, 2012 // Uncategorized

The other week my side of the family gathered together to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary. I’m so proud that my parents have been married for 40 years and will have more years ahead of them together. We celebrated with an afternoon soiree of friends and a very small amount of extended family from my mum’s side.

The thing about my family is, it is small. Both my parents are only children and there is a limited amount of cousins and relatives. Growing up we had a lot of pretend aunts and uncles that filled the role because we literally had no aunties, no uncles and no cousins. To celebrate my parents grand occasion we had a family portrait done in their living room. My parents, my 3 sisters, their husbands and a total of 4 grandchildren all posed together to mark the anniversary.

Ben and his sister Josie, April 1, 2012. So happy these two have many aunts and uncles and cousins to boot!

Did you grow up with a gaggle of cousins and a troop of aunts and uncles?
