Flashback Friday!

The three musketeers

I'm going to guess this picture is during 1985. I don't exactly know when but I think I look around 4. We moved to Florida in August 1984, so this was definitely after that.

I'm in the middle, my sister is the littlest one, our cousin is the blonde one. We three were close our whole lives. The only thing keeping us apart now is distance. My sister living in Alabama, and my cousin lives about 30 minutes away(not too far, but with busy schedules it's hard to meet up often).

We sang together, put on "shows" for our family, danced together, and had a lot of fun. I am the oldest of us three. I am about 6 months older than our cousin, and I am 21 months older than my sister. So we were close enough in age to always have a lot in common even while growing up. I have a few other cousins but we were not close to any others like we were with our cousin above. I am glad I had them in my life growing up.

My sisters and I used to spend every summer with our cousins. Now they live in Texas and we might get to see them once a year (if that). Miss those days...they were so much fun. Great flashback!

What a special picture!! I originally started this comment out with the word "awwww", but I think thats probably how most of my comments start out, and it might start to get annoying. I can't help it, I really do say "awwww" to myself a lot.

This picture really captures childhood. In such a perfect way.
