Having my sister around is a perfect excuse to get together with even more family!
A first cousin, once removed and her husband live on the opposite end of Austin from us, and another first cousin twice removed recently moved here. Got that? No? Neither did I. Here’s a chart:
Whatever their relation to us, we had a really great time. The hubby barbecued burgers and hot dogs, we had three different kinds of chips and the requisite potato salad and coleslaw. Bourbon-ritas ( like a margarita but with bourbon) were had, and my first cousin removed made an awesome blueberry pie! Mmmmmmm. Add to that some vanilla Blue Bell ice-cream ( the official ice cream of Texas) and what more could be said? We had lots of great conversations and good food. It was an excellent night!
