When I was growing up, we called my parent's closest friends "Aunt" and "Uncle." By default, their children, our friends, were our cousins. We've just finished our trip in Savannah with one of our dearest friends. You know - the kind where both of you (you and your spouse) actually enjoy equally both members of the other couple. We try to get together as often as we can, even vacationing one long weekend a year together. Leaving their "cousins" was so sad for our boys. They hugged and started planning the next visit. It was so sweet. And I found such joy in their "cousin" bond.
