Wordless Wednesday – 38th annual family reunion #ww

It was a chilly yet beautiful day for our family’s annual gathering at this park this past weekend! I didn’t realize it was the 38th year! I have been going for many of those. It’s fun to reconnect with family I don’t get to see often, yet very sad to look around and see all of the empty spaces that our loved ones have left behind. Does your family have a reunion?

I have no idea who these ladies even are. I just know we’re related and they are in charge of the auction every year. This is the fun way we raise funds to pay for the food and pavilion every year! you never know what you’re going to end up buying! I got a big Angel snowglobe this year!

  1. An auction at a family reunion sounds pretty neat. I have a very large family and see a lot of them often but there’s still quite a few I don’t get to see like I’d like to. It’s been years since we’ve had a family reunion. I think that it’s cool that you’re on the 38th year of one.

  2. Looks like a great time. I haven’t been to a family reunion in years.

  3. LOL I love the ones of the kids on their phones. To be honest, I’d probably be doing that too. lol.

  4. That’s a big family when you don’t even know who some of them are! We don’t have enough for a family reunion, and sadly the family I do have is full of rifts.

  5. How fun. Great pictures. Reconnecting with family is cool. We do not have reunions but I like that ideas a lot.

    Happy WW!

  6. I wish our family had more reunions! Looks like lots of fun!

    How fun! Looks like it was a blast!

  8. How fun! My family in Wisconsin has been having a reunion for years…we used to rent this VFW hall…now it’s down to a few families who come and it’s at my great-aunts farm. Sad how time changes – but it’s always great to see relatives and how people change.

  9. We haven’t had a big family reunion in years. I miss them. When I first started dating my husband his mother’s family always had a big get together the day after Thanksgiving. It was great.

  10. This is amazing – I wish my family did this. We tend to see most of our extended family at funerals. It’s really sad.

    So you are lucky – even with the texting kiddos!

  11. Looks like y’all had a blast! So funny to see the pic of the kids on their phones. My how times have changed…

  12. No reunions here. We don’t talk to one another.

  13. I love that you raise money during an auction! That’s hilarious. How many people come?

  14. I love the idea of an auction to pay for the place! Family reunions are a blast!

  15. I never go. I get tired of hearing, my have you grown and I look at them like who are you?? I used to go when I was younger but now ah just not my thing. Glad you had a great time.

  16. Great looking family! We have reunions on my Dad’s side, but I haven’t been for a few years.

  17. We used to have them. I loved them growing up. It’s a time to catch up with family you haven’t seen in years.

  18. I’ve never had a family reunion…I wish our family did these types of things.

  19. So much fun! I wish we had these more often. I never see my mother’s side and most of my dads family live in FL (we’re in MA)

  20. Aww I love this! My fiance’s family is having their reunion this Saturday and I can’t wait. So much fun and so great to see everyone. My side of the family would have one but they live all over the world so airfare is prohibiting it, LOL.

  21. How fun! I wish our family had a reunion!

  22. How fun! Looks like your family reunion was a hit! I was just saying the other day that our family needs one!

  23. how fun! My mom’s side does lots of family reunions but I haven’t been since I was a teen.

  24. Looks like fun! I haven’t had a reunion on my side in ages!

  25. How fun. We haven’t had a family reunion since I was a little kid.

  26. I wish we had a family reunion. Never had one:(
