family travel

Tips for a great family reunion.
They were a boisterous group, the family I observed on the Durango- Silverton train recently while I was on vacation. They were laughing and telling stories and obviously enjoying their time together. I couldn't resist... I struck up a conversation with one of the young women and learned they were having a family reunion in honor of her mother's 70 th birthday. They'd rented a house that accommodated 17 people and gathered in Durango, Colo., coming from Seattle, Nashville, Phoenix and Minneaapolis. "We're having a blast," the daughter told me.  (I secretly kind of wished I could join their party on the train!)
