We go to Idaho, mainly for Drew's family reunion (which, also happens to be bi-yearly).
They're funny little things, aren't they? I come from an anti reunion family... & in general the idea of contrived activities designed to bring you closer together isn't something I'm a fan of.
Oddly, I am much closer to the family that never hd reunions per se.
But, enough negative nelly.
Our kids love the reunion & while we have plenty of "family" where we live, only a few are actually blood related. Kids need cousins. A good part of me hopes they can find them in college & be as close as I became with mine.
Btw, I think one side of our family just does funerals for reunions... Booo to that!
Much better to gather around a pond.
Wow, a short one. Who typed these?
I will add that my kids ADORE the reunion, and there are some set activities including a water slide that they just can't get enough of. I will also admit that as someone not actually related to any of these people... well, there's just a lot of things I Don't "get'... thankfully, I really like Drew's familiy (he has 5 sisters) and his brothers-in-law are great to joke around about how insane it all is. :)
