Epic Family Reunion

I think that anytime you bring a large group of people together, for an extended period of time, in close living quarters, there is potential for disaster. When I invited my entire family--my complex, diverse, oh so difficult, but wonderful family--to join us at our house over the 4th of July for a first-ever family reunion, I knew there was the possibility that things could go badly. Very badly. So, with my expectations set realistically, I felt like our four day Zollinger family extravaganza was quite successful! Between parade-spectating, barbequing, and firework-watching on the holiday, swimming, lots of trampoline jumping and go-fish playing, family video sharing, eating/picnicing, hiking, BYU-visiting, board game playing, family photo-taking, church-going, and minute-to-win-it competing, there wasn't any time for much drama and disaster! I'm so glad we were all able to lay differences aside to bring our families together to create positive cousin memories.
