Sentimental Sunday - Keep Calm It's the Hosches and Hushes Family Reunion

It's hard to believe it's been 7 months since my last post. Where does the time go? I'll be honest, I've not done any real research in about a year. I'm hoping that is about to change / along with finally getting back to blogging.

Moving along to today's post. Remember, how I had a little dream / goal that my granddaddy Hosch's side of my maternal family would get back together one day. Well, it finally happened this year. The descendants of my grandfather, my grand Uncle, Will Hosch, and granddady and Uncle Will's cousin Eli Hush met on June 22, 2013.

The planning committee consisted of me, two of my second cousins, and 2 second cousins once removed.

We managed to put this together in the span of 4 months (our first meeting was in February). And we've already made plans to get together again in 2014. The most harrowing part of putting this together was trying to find a place to have it that wasn't already booked.

My cousin Toni, who doesn't seem to be in the above picture of the planning committee, found the perfect place for our reunion.

Here are a few pics from the 2013 reunion.

Some even got in some fishing, which we ate later.
