1,000 Words: Boy Cousins

Chris-Chet-Grandpa.jpg

This photo shows my nephews Chet and Christopher sitting on my dad's lap.  What a sweet photo and I love the matching outfits the boys are wearing.  They are not brothers but you can't tell from this photo.  These two boys are first cousins, but their bond goes way beyond the cousin title. My parent's first three grandchildren were girls.  When Christopher came along, soon followed by Chet, the numbers began to even out.  These two boys spent a lot of time playing and were inseparable when the families got together.  (Which was on a regular basis.)  I can distinctly remember learning that boys were different from girls (and I don't just mean in the anatomical sense) from watching these two grow up.  All the games were different, the toys were different even the antics and vocabulary were different... and it was wonderful.
