Living by my brother and his family has been so great. It was our driving factor for this move to Seattle and it has proved to be excellent. We have had lots of Sunday dinners and dates and fun, classic cousin time. It was a dream of mine for many years to raise my kids with their cousins and my brother and sister-in-law's three children are all the same ages as mine (well, within a few months anyway). It has been so great to see them forge friendships. I also happen to love my brother and sister-in-law as well so it's a win-win.
