Cousins 2008 Iowa DSC01454_2I’m a little late on this, but wanted to post anyway. I am thankful for my two girl cousins who are one year older and two years younger than me. They are two people I have known for my whole entire life. When the youngest cousin turned 50 (Yikers!), we celebrated with a road trip to Iowa (Woo Hoo!). I know…people do not understand why we chose Iowa for our first road trip, but it was the beginning of more Iowa to come. We LOVE Iowa and have actually celebrated three annual trips there. We have since added a road trip to the UP of Michigan and a plane ride to Savannah, GA.

DSC02394I loved this quote when I first heard it.

“…she is the sister everybody would want, she is the friend that everybody deserves.  I don’t know a better person. I don’t know a better person.”

said Oprah Winfrey about Gayle King

So true of my favorite traveling buddy cousins. I love these girls!

My older cousin’s husband travels by air a lot.  We thought it would be fun for him to arrange a mystery trip this year. He jumped into this with both feet and had a blast making all the arrangements for our first flying trip.  Once we arrived at the airport, we were allowed to open our envelopes to discover our destination. We were more than over-joyed to find out that we were heading off for a warm weekend in Savannah, Georgia.
