I successfully survived the Traffas family reunion. The annual gathering was held on December 29th in Sharon, KS. The reunion was a great opportunity for me to meet Aaronâ€™s extended family. Everyone was great. Although it was much different than my own familyâ€™s activities the day was definitely an adventure.
We started out the day with some wonderful BBQ, which I love and Aaron doesnâ€™t care forâ€¦so I guess I win! Then it was time for the scavenger hunt. Broken down into three teams we battled on wit and our collecting skills. I was honored to be a member of Shawnâ€™s team which also included Andrew, John, Matt, Levi, Kristi and Erica. This collection of wonderful people made up the winning team. We were able to collect the most items from the scavenger hunt list; our team also scored the highest on the portion of the challenge which deal with logo and current events. So way to go Shawnâ€™s team; we are awesome. I was also very excited that I received on wonderful name badge, my name of course it â€œwinnerâ€. I truly did have a great time; it was nice to meet more of Aaron family and to be able to have something interesting and fun to fill the time.
After the awards ceremony we all took the time to mix up some very tasty drinks. One of my new favorites it the tumbleweed which consists of Brandy, Kaluha, Frangelica, cream and ice; it was very yummy. I look forward to next year when I will find myself back in Sharon running all around finding this and finding that; I hope that everyone else enjoyed the Traffas family reunion as much as I did.
