Jan. 24th – 28th, 30 families attended the 2013 Fulltime Families Winter Family Reunion.
On Thursday, we started with a Journal Making Craft for all ages, so kids could collect autographs and contact information from their soon to be new friends.
Then it was time to party until we were purple, or many various colors as the tie-dying began. Kids turned plain white shirts into stunning one of a kind pieces of artwork, and the Highway Hounds tie-dyed their sheet for the highly anticipated “teens vs everyone else” kick ball game the next day.
At dinner time, we all met up for the Meet and Greet Pizza Party, sponsored in part by Chicks Connect.
And then kids and adults alike went head to head in our Family USA Trivia Game, sponsored by Wright on Time Books.
On Friday morning, our Appoholics (people addicted to apps) were out in full force to share breakfast and their favorite tablet / smart phone apps.
After getting downloaded and fueled up, everyone hit the field for the Highway Hounds First Annual Homecoming Kickball game, where the hounds exercised their dominance with a score of 102 to 2 (according to their coach, Kimber Sparks).
After a short break for lunch, the day continued with a Roadschool Curriculum Convention, a Girls’ Beauty Parlor Party, and a Boys’ Scavenger Hunt.
Everyone worked up a ferocious appetite for Steak Night, where grill masters cooked steaks to order and everyone brought salads, appetizers and desserts to share.
That night, the kids enjoyed a movie by moonlight, while adults were able to share some grown up time around the campfire.
Saturday dawned to a Boondockers Breakfast, as guest speaker Marianne Edwards, of frugal-rving.com, shared her vast knowledge on dry camping with all the rally attendees.
At noon, it was time for the Parade of Homes, when we get the opportunity to tour each others rv’s and see what mods / upgrades and great ideas we can steal from each other.
After a quick wardrobe change, the Family Talent Show, sponsored by Fodeo RV Frames began with talented family members delighting the crowd!
At 6pm we headed to the Ugly Sweater Social / Pot Luck Party and then played a rousing game of FtF Let’s Make Deal, sponsored by Workamper News where FtF’s won prizes like a TV/DVD Combo, free stays at surrounding rv parks, and even a racing package from Competition 101.
On Sunday morning, rally attendees got a sneak peek into what Fulltime Families has planned for 2013. From more community building activities, to our summer rally and other meet ups around the country, we have a ton of stuff planned and hope your family will be involved!
We want to thank all our sponsors, our volunteers, and guests. The 2013 Winter Rally was a huge success as a result of your efforts and eagerness to make this the best family rving event of the winter!
