This post has been the most challenging one for me yet. I come
from a fairly small family, distant relatives were just that and
most of everyone was usually to broke to break the distance via
travel. Frankly I don't have too many family vacations or reunions
to derive a funny story from.
Since I have been married however, I have had the privilege to travel around a bit more. My husband and I have driven to Florida and Indiana to visit family. We have also been able to visit my parents in Ohio. All of which being a sort of family reunion, small yes but we were able to see loved ones that we haven't been able to see face-to-face since we have been living in Tennessee.
The funniest moment I can think of was this past Thanksgiving break when we visited my parents in Ohio. My (at the time 15 year old) sister, Amber and I realized it had been a while since we did each other's make up. As a result we both agreed that we could do whatever it is we wanted to the other's face. After we both finished we looked in the mirror to find that had colored my face to resemble a penguin and I had made her look like a man. This was probably the most fun I had had with her since we were both kids, we always have fun but this was just over the top!
