How to plan a Family Reunion

Later this summer my dad’s side of my family will be posting a HUGE family reunion.  This side of my family doesn’t live close to me and there have been some feuds which add up to me not really knowing very many of the extended extended part very well.  A couple of uncles are in charge and my dad has been helping out and they are doing such a great job!  The most important thing (in my opinion) is the fact that they sent out a “Save the Date” really far in advance.  This is key because I was able to move our Yosemite vacation over a day just so my family could attend.

The upcoming reunion got me thinking about what people do to connect everyone at a function like this.  So I took to my favorite idea forum and did some looking around.  Here are my top ideas for a Family Reunion from Pinterest.

Picture Tree from Babble

I love pictures around a tree!  Seriously, it’s a thing.  But, I think maybe you could designate different trees for different main families and have them add their names and ages.  Call them the “Family Trees”.
