Family Reunion

Every couple of years or so, all of the cousins on my mother's side have a reunion.This year it was in Field Park in Mukwonago, Wisconsin, and my second cousin Paula organized it.

About 50 people attended, ranging in age from 3 to 83.

We came from far and near:

Far (Florida)

Near (Mukwonogo)
  Although our families originated in northern Illinois, we are now scattered all over the country, so it's nice to see everyone to reminisce. Sorry I didn't get everyone's picture

We also hold a 'fun auction' to help defray the expenses. My nephew Terry is the auctioneer; everyone brings something and then we auction it off to the highest bidder. The bidding is fast and furious, and we bid early and often!

We picknicked on chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs and brats plus all of the fixins', and a good time was had by all.
