Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

This set of my aunt and her family was taken last Easter. Her family is bigger than ours and we do things a little differently. I was happy to get the opportunity to snap this because I love each of them even if our interactions have changed over time. Cousins grow older and stop idolizing you. Aunts and uncles begin treating you as an adult.

All I can do to try to stop time is walk around with a camera in my hands grasping at those last glimmers of familiarity and fondness. How many summers did we spend growing up together just to go separate ways?
