We have an Annual Family Reunion in Destin, Florida where my family and my sister's family gather with children and grandchildren each year. Same time, same place. This was our 28th year, and we had one uninvited guest (video above). We have had some family members pass, children grow up, marry and babies born.
Looks like a good time, wish my parents would have done stuff like that, then maybe my brother wouldn't be so distant.

Thank you, Dawn. She is growing up to be a beautiful young lady. Just too fast for me
We probably did, Dawn. We got about two good days in on the beach before Cindy showed herself - completely uninvited We wouldn't have had those days if we hadn't arrived early this year. After that the beach was closed for the remainder of our trip.
We still had a good time with family as we always do.
Do you know where your son and family stayed in Destin?
Wow! I'm glad it wasn't worse than it was, and you all were okay! I'm going to have to come back to this post to watch the video, I love watching storms, looks exciting!
Love seeing the family pics, my mom's side has had a family reunion every year since I could remember. I have rarely gone as an adult, but they're never that exciting, lol. My dad's side only ever had one family reunion, it was years ago and I attended it. The only thing close to that was an Uncles 80th birthday on my dad's side. I did go out of state years ago, to Kentucky for my mom-in-laws family reunion, it was pretty nice, but I was going through a sad state at the time or would have enjoyed it even more.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful family with us!
Thank you, Terry. We all look forward to our annual trips and the grandchildren love reconnecting with their cousins. Our family has always had at least one get together a year for as long as I can remember because once we were grown and married, we were so spread out.
Keeping family connected was very important to my parents. This particular reunion is very special to us.
The grandchildren start the count down right after New Years
ETA: I did other videos. Just didn't put them on YouTube.
Yes, Dolphin Point is condos more in Destin proper than we are, although we are still in Destin - if that makes sense. They were more 'downtown'. It looks very nice.
Yep, the Gulf whipped up some awesome waves for sure. It was amazing to watch. Certainly would not want to be there when an actual hurricane came ashore
This video shows why we love where we stay. They have a green space so the grandchildren have a place to play when we come up from the beach in the afternoon, and they certainly take advantage of it, from playing ball to their trucks we haul miles and miles every year We have five condos on the ground floor, so they just go from condo to condo with their cousins.
We used to eat out each evening when mom and dad were with us, but as our grandchildren came along (the great-grands) we found it much easier to cook and stay in. My sister and I have the meals down to where it is very easy, even for 22-23 people
Even with Cindy's rain, they manage to have a game of ball.
