the cabin we always go to is owned by my dad and a couple uncles. since it is a family cabin, sometimes others go up there as well. this year i made the mistake of not calling my uncles to let them know that we would be going up. oops. turns out my cousin was planning to go up the same night! when we arrived we were quite surprised to see my cousin ben and his buddy faber chilling out- i'm guessing they were pretty surprised too! we talked with them and ben said 'well, you came up all this way, we might as well hang out together!' we had a great time, and ben was really understanding!
(shameless plug: my cousin ben and faber are in a band, check them out here!)
