We have one every summer with my mom's family. I think it goes back 13 years. It is a four day/3 night event.

There was a reunion about 8 years ago, but I was in Germany. I had come home to help my mom for a month after she broke both of her legs. I did not get to come back for the reunion. There has not been one since then.

On my dad's side of the family there is one every year, going back to about 1988. It is held here in Toledo, Ohio and a lot of family comes in from all over the country. There is easily 75-100 people there every year.

Tradition is LOTS of Mexican food, everyone brings 1-2 things to raffle off and then there is a 50/50 drawing. What is made in ticket sales goes towards beer and other supplies for the next year.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
