Cape Cod

     Every summer, my mom takes my sister and I to Cape Cod to visit our cousins. It's a tradition that she's continued since she was a little girl. This morning she took me down to the jetty where she would go fishing with her brother everyday. She showed me the rocks where she would sit and fish and the place where she would cut her bait into pieces.

     These trips make me realize how important family is. I've never thought of family as being unimportant, but seeing everyone together once a year emphasizes the importance of relatives. I love chatting with them and sharing stories. Every summer is better than the next and I'll always remember the times we have while we're on the Cape.
