In the 1950s John and Martha Riley had five granddaughters. Of course there were several boys, too, but it's the girls this post is about. We had a wonderful time playing around the farm, sharing games and toys, and in general, making memories as all children do.
About thirteen years ago, the four of us who live in Texas planned to take a trip to Pigeonhole, Tennessee where our grandmother grew up. The log cabin still stands, has been added on to multiple times and is still occupied. One of the cousins lives in Virginia so we'd hoped to rope her in while there. We had a family emergency and had to cancel.
Five years ago, two of us hit the road and drove to Baytown to visit one cousin. We had a great weekend. The following year, two came up to the Waco area where the other two Texans live. Since then we've gotten together every summer or whenever we can all meet. This year we drove to Baytown again and toured part of Galveston. Our goal for next year is to make it to Virginia and see our fifth cousin.
How about you guys? Do you to get together with cousins or have sister outings?Here are four of us this past weekend.
Thanks for stopping by and happy reading and writing!
