Family bond

Taken at my grandparent's property in the NW suburbs of Chicago on a small quiet lake during my family's annual Family Picnic. The child on the left is my son, almost 3 years old. The child on the right is my cousin's 4 year old son. My son put his hand around my nephew, his hand on the small of his back. My nephew reached back, grabbed his hand and pulled it around his waist where he held it. It was the most touching and natural moment of the day, capturing what it was all about for our extended family.
