Family Reunion

Saturday we had our annual McMillion Family Reunion.

Close to forty family members came out in the cool and slightly rainy weather.

We had a great time! In addition to our auction, which raises money for the reunion, and playing Bingo, we had lots and lots of good food, fellowship and fun photo opportunities in our little 'photo booth'.



We brought props, such as an old pitch fork, eggs and egg basket, hay bales, hats, aprons, pumpkin, bench, etc., to make each picture fun and unique.










My cousin and her son painted the above picture on plywood. They went by this old photo of our grandparents, taken in the early 1900s. I think they did a great job. We all had a fun time posing as Grandma and Grandpa. 



I remember when I was young we would all meet down at Grandma's house on her birthday for a get together and picnic in her yard.  I guess that was what you would call our early reunions.


Do you have family reunions? What fun activities (besides eating) do you do?

  2. What fun. I remember the family reunions we used to have, years ago, on my father's side of the family. Cousins and aunts and uncles, along with my grandparents. Most of them are gone now and the younger generation doesn't get together they way we once did. They're more scattered now.
    Great pictures. Thanks for the memories.

  4. I have always envied families that have had family reunions. Our family never had one that I can remember. Your photo booth was unique and creative -- lots of fun looking at the photographs. --- barbara
