So, when Sam booked me to come over to a little mini family reunion of sorts, she and I went through the normal checklist of questions and thoughts and then related the answers to my own family dynamics:
- Do you have a large family…check.
- Are they crazy…check.
- Crazy=fun, right…check.
- Everyone gets along (especially when eating and drinking)…check.
Perfect. This was going to be SO familiar to me.
For the sake of this post, it’s important to note that I’m terrible at tests and always have been. Maybe that’s why I was a Social Science major in my undergrad…no tests. Our tests were always papers, and I could write my butt off. So, before I fail this name test miserably to include all those that were there, let me instead write about how cool they all were. Everyone was terribly welcoming and accommodating to me…this random guy throwing tons of camera gear in their grills. But in all seriousness, everyone was a blast and I was really appreciative to get the opportunity to spend my evening with them and validate that I’m not the only one with a huge, crazy family! Enjoy a sneak peek into their evening below.
