These are my lady cousins on my dad's side. We are the best.
I didn't know that it was uncommon for my extended family to be as close as we are. My grandpa emphasized a very special kind of relationship and it is 100% because of him that we are the way we are. It wasn't until a few years ago that someone said that most family's aren't this way, which is weird to me. Then what is family? What is it to not love your blood the way I love these people?
