HuTcHiNgS HoLd Em' ReUnIoN- Day1

DAY 1-Camp Set-up and...
DinneR at BLacK BaRt's SaLoOnWe took up 2 tables with 16 adults and 8 Children (3 high chairs)...
We sent in our orders weeks previously when I made reservations.
We got the tables right up front by the stage and piano-where the servers perform (they are all NAU theatre students) and the piano plays by itself (the kids thought it was a ghost that was playing, literally!)--Look at video clip below!

Since it was a old west saloon type family reunion theme-we all got boas and derby hats to wear around-Dinner was NO EXCEPTION!
Most people got some form of steaks or ribs, along with yummy rolls and cinnamon honey butter (I think Colton ate 7)--on top of potatoes--you had to "roll" us out of there.
FoR MemORy'Sake..I have included the agenda for the entire reunion--

(with such large numbers and special circumstances, we kept to it fairly well)

I love family reunions! We had one at a KOA about 4 years ago and it was SO fun. There were so many neat activities provided by the campground in addition to all the family fun. Glad yoiu got to spend some good quality Hutchings time.

I love that you posted the itinerary--that will be so good to look back on...and to give all us slackers ideas for planning a family reunion! We want to copy how the Westover's do it & each sibling takes a turn being in charge each year. Is that how you guys do it too?
