One of my most favorite days of the year is the cookout day at camp with my family on my mom's side. I get to see all my aunts and uncles, many of my cousins and their kids. Good, good people they are. The bummer of living states away is we don't get to do this nearly enough. Having this annual chance to get as many together as possible is a day my kids look forward to...and the fact that my kids also know and love my extended family does my heart good.
