Top 10 reasons to go to a family reunion in KY

1. Fried chicken...we have our Family reunions in Corbin, Kentucky (home of the original KFC.) Speaking of KFC...my grandpa's brother definitely looks like Colonel Sanders minus the facial hair.
2. Pretty scenery. The Bluegrass state is actually a very pretty place to visit!
3. Seeing family from near and far. We skyped with my cousin Laura who is stationed in Japan.
4. Our annual corn hole tournament. We took over the parking lot. Yes there are medals for the winners. Yes I will get one someday.
5. Generations unite. Our family reunion has been going on for 73 years. They haven't missed a year!
6. Name tags...doesn't everyone have name tags at their family reunion?
7. 2nd cousins that are more like 1st cousins.
8. Seeing people who you must be related to because they are there, but you have no idea who they are.
9. Bourbon and Coke...self-explanatory.


10. More family. I love my family, quirks and all and thankfully Drew does too. He's a keeper.

I love family reunions and I bet I would love them even more if they were in Kentucky! This looks like a lovely time and honestly I would travel great lengths for a good piece of friend chicken.

I absolutely love that you guys have a huge reunion every year! :) We've been good about having one for the immediate family, but I never see the extended ones.
