    My wife's family has them every year and it's this weekend.

    I've married in so most of the time it's spent sitting listening to stories about my wife and her cousins when they were kids, but still a lot of fun.

    Used to about 50 people, not attendance is down and they're lucky to see 30.

    Anyone else go to family have family reunions?

    It hasn't been a tradition in our family.
    We try to have a cookout a couple times a year for us, the kids and the grand-kids. Sometimes we invite one of my sisters and her family. Family is either so spread out or deceased that it's not an option.
    I hope that you have a great time. Always nice to be part of a close nit family.
    We are in the process of planning a pulled pork get together in a few weeks.

    We're spread all over the country, and have never all been in the same location at once. Sad actually.

    Same thing with my family. It was already small, but as we got older it grew further apart.

    This is my wife's thing. It's neat. Never had exposure to it growing up.

    Both my wife and I attend family functions a few times a year...besides the usual weddings and funerals.

    Fourth of July has always been a big thing on my side...and for her family it's Christmas.

    Well the turnout was decent this year.

    About 30 people. Most of them remember my name now so that was cool. Been with my wife six years. The family is so big I'm sure they have cousins they don't know exist.
