Eli and his cousin Gracie are BFF's. They love to play together when they see each other in the summer and during breaks. They will play for hours in Gracie's new pool. Some of their favorite games are diving for toys in the pool, playing on Mimi and Pop-pop's playground, and making forts in the house.
The picture above is their recent fort. They went on missions to rescue stuffed animals and had to avoid the watchful eyes of the dogs. (The dogs were happy to not be the center of attention for a bit and enjoyed a long nap).
A cousin is definitely your first best friend!
