I used to. I guess they don't have them anymore.

Dad's side of the family is huge...he was one of twelve children. Usually over 100 at reunions. It's interesting to talk to cousins and always learn something new about them.

Never. Narcotics and alcohol are need to make it bearable

I'm the eldest now. So when I get together (rarely) with some family it's great.

They're so much fun! We've done two at a waterpark, one at a ranch in Colorado, and once in Hawaii...usually about 40 people there.

I do. With everyone spread all over the place, we don't get together as much anymore. So I enjoy it when it happens.

Our Family reunions are Funerals and Parole hearings.

I quit going to them shortly after I turned 18 and got married.

My usual reaction is: Kill me. Kill me now.

Exactly. My dad actually left us at one and escaped to McDonald's. He showed back up later. I still wish he had taken us with him!

I love them! I've only been to ones with my first cousins and stuff but I'd love to go to one with more extended family sometime :) it's cool to meet the people that my parents and grandparents know but I don't.

My uncle has one every year at his beach house in MD. So fun and low key! My family is whacked, so you have to let a lot of the BS go. Appropriate expectations and it can be fun!

Can't stand them. Someone coming up to me and saying, "I remember you when you were 'this high'!"
That's great. I don't care.

When my family gets together, it's just our immediate family, people I can mostly stand.

Apparently no one in my family does. We never have them.

You're very lucky! I wish I could say that.

I hate attending mine. My family is too big. 40 first cousins over 80 second visions and so on. I hate Alayna's having to explain who I am and making small talk with someone I only see every 5 years.
