|Me and my cousin/best friend.|
What is a successful reunion?
- Everyone arrived safely
- We didn't run out of food...not even for the late arrivals
- Everyone had a great time
- Everyone enjoyed the change!!!
I think the family was ready for some change.
This year, we held the reunion, not in traditional Elizabeth City, NC. But in Orlando, FL. Nor did we hold it at the usual 'last weekend in August' that we have had it just about every year. I moved the date up about 2 weeks to correspond when the kids were still out for summer break. We had just over 100 people in attendance. Which is awesome. Granted when it's in Elizabeth City..we have more. But, a good majority of our family stays there. So, being at the reunion is not a traveling event for them. I was happy that we had a great turn out at this year.
Many people took advantage of turning the reunion into the summer vacation. Being in Orlando made it easy!
Now I need to a vacation to recover!
