10 year kidney anniversary

Anyone who read my post on June 24th knows that I am 8 years out with a kidney transplant from my sister. For the first 5 years my family and I hosted a picnic/get together for various people we knew to celebrate life and the fact that I was still around to be with them all. Not that it was all about me. Through the years it became kind of a family reunion of sorts. Some people came every year and some came once but all were welcome and it was great to see them.

In 2 years we will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary and I have been researching what to do. My first idea was to all go on a cruise together but this has proven to be a bit cost prohibitive and possibly not as much fun with such a large group. My sister suggested that we get a beach house somewhere like Myrtle Beach, SC or Padre Island, TX then people could come and go as they please. I agreed that it sounded like a fine plan so I've been doing a little research and I am excited to see what all of the possibilities will be. My greatest wish would be for all my family and all my friends to be there...but I will be content with those who can make it.

If anyone has any ideas feel free to leave a comment.

This sounds like loads of fun. I can't wait to get the group together!
