I can remember when I was little that every single sunday my family would get together , my aunts, uncles, cousins, would all go to grandparents house and the women would all cook and bake all day , the men would sit out side in lawn chairs and talk fishing , sports, and such, me and my cousins would just play all day , playing tag and stuff. What has happened to families?? We have not done that in years and all of my family is spread around the country , even when we have a family reunion we do not see everyone. It is so sad.

Hi sweetpeasmom! My family is very close,as we're from a small island we see each other often. Some of my family live abroad, and we only get together once or twice a year, but we talk every week by e-mail or phone. I to can remember going to my grammys house on Sundays, and having my aunts, uncles, and cousins there, and just enjoying famliy time. We still do this to an extent, we met at my aunts house because my grammy lives there, but it's still not the same. I miss those days, as some of my family members are gone, but i cherish every oppertunity that i get to spend time with my family.

Not really. I have 5 brothers and sisters and only talk to two of them. I don't talk to my real mother at all. I talk to my daddy or step mom just about everyday, but that is it.
