Maddy and her cousin, Anna, have been best friends since they were little. Anna is 6 mos. older than Maddy and has loved her like a sibling since birth. ( I mean it when I say like siblings...love, irritation, tears, fights, smiles and all! )
My dad took these two on a trip to Sanibel Island Resort for Spring Break.
Needless to say, they had a blast. They recorded their whole trip through photos (thank God for facebook sometimes...) and I just loved the images they came back with. These photos really do capture their relationship.
I remember being envious of friends with cousins (or siblings) that were close in age. My closest sibling is 6 years older and my closest girl-cousin was 3 years younger...and I didn't get to see her very often. So I have really enjoyed watching these two.
As I watch them grow, I picture them as high schoolers, then college kids, and eventually grown-ups. With their own families. I hope they stay close!! And I hope their daughters or sons are just as close as they are!
