Never has Gavin had so much fun sitting so quietly. 

He hadn't seen his cousin for quite some time. Now they're both a little older and while they were together last week, they both seemed so mature... I think they each felt that way too...

They spent the afternoon playing outside for the longest time, comparing experiences and skills... sizing each other up. Each enjoying the older version of the other.

They played several games of Pick-Up Sticks. I loved watching as they sat perched on a shared kitchen stool, engrossed in their game, while adults carried on conversation around them and the babies played at their feet. They were in their own world. It was sweet to watch... 

They loved every second of a simple game, with colored sticks. They were quiet... content. Announcing that we had to leave for home was difficult to do. I hated to break up the game... but summer will be here before we know it and I'm sure they'll be able to pick up right where they left off... they'll be able to play together under the summer sun, as slightly older versions of themselves.
