kate5kiwis: cuzzie bro's


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

cuzzie bro's

the last three days have been a non-stop party with Auntie Mim and her granddaughter who's our second cousin (got that?) Rosie and my cousin Nik and her daughter (also our second cousin) Zoë.

i have so many cool childhood memories of winters and summers skiing and boating with my cousins, going to the beach together, walking up and down Kitenui Avenue, eating a billion figs up Uncle Lew's tree (i hate fresh figs to this day), walking down to the shops for iceblocks and burning out feet on the hot prickly pavement, and eating Auntie Kaye's roast dinners (i think that's where my *kate can eat ten roast potatoes* fame originated), and it was so very wonderful to have the Big Meet Up and make some more memories with our own kiddos.

here's the Big Whanau Photofest:

M6 and Rosie are looking for buzzy bees

Rosie shows us her moves, these two bounced day and night

our fave berry icecreams

Woozie aka R14 used to spend a lot of time with Rosie when Rosie was teeny - they've still got a great girl-cuzzie thang going.

sweetie Zoë making music

Nik and Zoë try out the bouncey-bouncey

Zoë usually sucks her fingers and holds onto Nik's ear, very cutesy

S10 is a natural with babies, he has an instant connection and loved hangin' out with Zoë, feeding her and helping her walk

Auntie Mim and Rosie take a break, that car is a teapot, all set up for fairy parties at dusk

awww so cool .... I grew up with truckloads of cuzzie bros too .... kinda feel sorry for my kiddliwinks who are missing out on all the cuzzie bro fun we had back in the good ole days - LOL.

Seriously jealous you guys are in t-shirts and at the beach - yeah, it's not quite that warm here yet. Does it evah get that warm in Dunedin? This is going to be my second summer here and I seriously doubt it.

Oh so much fun. Zoe even sucks the same two fingers that my J does, I love it! Thanks for sharing your summery photos with us, you all look like you are having a grand time.
