17 Things That Happen at my Family Reunions

Everyone stays up late and wakes up early.

We start off white and end the weekend tanned.

We meet someone new to the family, a boyfriend, husband, girlfriend, wife, kids, or baby, and we realize that our family will never stop growing.

We remember that Aloe Vera is God’s gift for sunburns.

In the water for more than half the day.

We freak out because there’s no cell service.

The night ends in games of cards, board games, or outdoor games.

There’s always too much food.

We reminisce on past reunions and the craziness that ensued.

There’s always animal sightings or catches: deer, lizards, turtles, fish.

Family drama happens at least once.

Anytime someone goes to the store, they end up buying ice for the entire family and usually more beer.

Someone gets lost going to the store.

S’mores!
