No, not really. Everyone doesn't come to the barbecues. We do have Family Reunions. I go to three each summer. My moms side of the family has her Reunion every July in Georgia. We take the 12 hour drive every summer. My mother-in-laws Reunion is every August on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and my step father has one every summer in Baltimore. I wish my fathers side of the family had one to. I live in Maryland and most of them live in Georgia. I only get to see them for weddings and funerals.
