Shauna had originally suggested doing theme nights each night of our family reunion. How it worked: All family members were asked to dress up for each night in theme related attire. When the dress up idea was first thrown out, our brothers/brother-in-laws were not exactly loving the idea, but in the end even they participated and had a great time! We also had food and games that were in keeping with the nightly theme.
If you'll remember L. had knitted herself some legwarmers. She has worn them a couple times already, but pulled them out for the 70's night--think late 70's. We all got a kick out of her.
Our Mom thought that hula hoops would be fun to have for the 70's night. Who knew that it would seriously be such a HUGE hit with all the kids. Once they figured it out--and almost all of them did--they would just go out on the cabin patio and hula hoop for hours.
Food for 70's night was pretty basic: Hamburgers and Hot Dogs on the grill. We also did a Family Bingo game, where each square was a fact about a family member.
