"This event took place at Deep River Park in Hobart, IN on May 18, 2013. This photo includes all first generation cousins, although some are still missing. We were told to make a funny pose and here it is. My mom comes from family of 12 and with two of her brothers passed away, now they are a family of 10. Since my mother is the oldest and thankfully my grandparents are still alive. She wanted to do something special for them and that's why she decided to have a family reunion. My mother said, "The family shouldn't see each other at a funeral, we need to see each other more often." So my brother and sisters and I decided to help and make this happen. We were all in charge of something for the reunion. I was in charge of t-shirts so looked up online for reunion t-shirts and that's how I found this website. I loved that there were a variety of fonts, sizes and were able to upload photos onto the shirts. I uploaded a picture of a snake in a circle shape in front which means, the it keeps going never stops. So the family will keep growing which the snake symbol is very important in our family. Well our family reunion was a success!!! My mom and her siblings got together that day and decided to do this annually but to do it in order from oldest to youngest. So that every year it's a different idea and area!!!"
