Yeah but not on a regular. Dh's mothers side of the family had one in September of 2005. We did not go. Well it was a couple weeks after we went to another family thing up north. I couldn't spare the time off of work or the money. My side of the family does get togethers if out of town family comes in to visit. But my mother is nasty about it. She never tells us when the family is getting together till after the facts. Or will not ask family if they can meet up for dinner at a time when we can make it. The last 2 times family got together I was working.

My dad's side of the family gets together every July but I haven't been since I was 14, because it's in Utah.

Not regularly, but my dad's family is having a massive family reunion in MN next month, so we'll be attending that. I will also be meeting Trina (above poster) while I'm there!

My dad's side has had one every year since the mid-80's except last year because the hostess and her husband both got deployed 2 weeks before it. Mom's side hasn't had one since the mid-80's. I remember going to Canada for it.
DH's family doesn't have any type of get-togethers except for a baptism, wedding or death in the family.

Nope. Most of dh's family is dead (his parents are in their 60's). My side did a couple when we were VEEEEEEEEERY young... but no one really knew anyone else. It was a wasted day of my life!

Yes! My mom's side has a family reunion every summer. A different location is chosen each year by my mom's parents and they make all the arrangements. This year it is at a state park here in Ohio.

DH's family doesn't have regular family reunions but his dad's family is basically all in the same city so they get together fairly regularly... did for Father's day this year because DH's grandfather was in town from FL.
