At least it was mainly an "us" against "them" situation where none of the nonhost people were happy.



True! Plus we weren't involved in any of the fights.

Host kept asking people if they felt unconfortable!
Oh, no....we always want to drive the dog 20 minutes each way back to the hotel, because it rained and he couldn't go in the house!
Or our 7 year old couldn't pee
Or we couldn't take a nap after traveling the whole day before.
Or watch the Twlight zone with dad.



WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

Maybe someone should have told the host that, yes, they were uncomfortable.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Here's an idea. You and husband host it next year!

d'name - all I can say is WOW! glad it wasn't you & hubby who ended up in direct confrontation.

I would say it makes my family seem sane, but we have some of those folks in mine too. We just don't do reuinions!

Bunch of family in town.
No juicy drama in this neck of the woods, though!

So when family comes to visit in Las Vegas, do they all just visit or do they all go gamble?

We did it 2 years.
Everyone came, even the older kids, who are working
This time only one cousin didn't come and the lawyer sister.
She had to work last minute.
She is a partner in a NYC firm. Makes tons of money, but when work has to be done, she has to do it. Vacation or not.

There were 5 in my mom's family - 4 girls and one boy. and there is ALWAYS drama. Only 2 girls and the boy left now. The youngest, know-it-all sister and my mom, the over-sensitive one. the boy stays the heck outta the way!

It usually depends on the visitor. Some like to break away for a bit and do their own thing. Sometimes we have to play Tour Guide, which can be fun, albeit less interesting for those of us who live here.

Some of our visitors have absolutely no interest in the glitter and neon.

I'd say we had a little of everything this weekend.

ETA: One thing is consistent: they're happy to take advantage of free lodging!

I agree d'name - it was completely uncalled for and he owes her a direct apology.

Also agree.
And her dad showed great restraint if that man didn't walk away with a bloody nose, I think.

Wow Dname. I don't know how you and hubby kept quiet. I don't think I would have stayed once I knew FIL was ok. You deserve a nice break after that!

It was studidly dangerous to charge a canoe with a powered boat. Someone could have been killed.

Yesh. I guess there's an upside to not having a close family. Haven't seen cousins (dad's side only) in over 35 years.

You and hubby were good people to hang in there for FIL.

Son went out on the boat once and not again.
It was cold and rainy and he isn't that into it.
Daughter's worst moment was when she got trapped by host to be bragged to.
Aunts and uncles who heard it felt bad for her!
No, there was no real place or time for them to get into trouble.
Most time the cousins spent together was in the hotel rooms at night.

Even as a kid I didn't care about stuff like that.

Unforunately, with the adults acting like that, the cousins are going to be less and less inclined to make the time to go to the reunion.

The odd thing is hubbys mom and dad didn't stay close to any of their siblings.
Well, dad did, but that was his sisters doing. She just didn't take no for an answer.

2)I missed the "good stuff"
3)Again, I feel bad for you and your family that the reunion went badly.

D'name, I can't believe that your family all got arrested! What was she thinking bringing out the paintball guns, anyway?

Oh, and for Pete's sake, you simply don't have a food fight in the middle of Denny's! I dearly would have loved to see the mustard all in the hair of that waitress, though.


Pretty funny the way your husband jumped up on the picnic table at the other venue, and, brandishing the spatula and grilling fork, shouted "Mets rule!". But really, he shouldn't have poked the cop with the fork!

I'm surprised your ploy of pretending to be part of the park staff worked, keeping you out of the hoosegow, at least.
