A Whole Lot of Boorens in One Location

The Thursday before the extended Booren family reunion, the adults, many I have never met before, met for dinner. It ended up being a completely lovely evening, made more fun commiserating over living with the name Booren. 

A few days later the children were included in on the fun at a park outside Portland, Oregon. You'll notice how nicely most everyone is smiling.

Here's a picture of some of the original grandchildren of George and Linda Booren.

A picture of grandchildren to great great grand children.

And finally just the great great grand children. You can tell that though just a few minutes later the wee ones are done with the photo op and even some of the older ones are showing their ennui.

I made that sign!!

Thanks go out to my darling sister Melissa (she even made geneological name tags for everyone) and my father's angelic cousin Diana for getting us all together.

Wee Boy 1, Mama 0

Today, while I had laundry going, I got distracted doing some online shopping. The washer ended but I was too engrossed in what I was ordering that I put off changing the laundry. Sometime afterwards Wee Boy scampered off and a few minutes later I heard the dryer going. I assumed the little stinker had started the dryer empty as he been wont to do, but again, I was too engrossed/lazy to do anything about it. When I finally got around to turning off the empty dryer, I found that Wee Angel Boy had done my job for me (minus the dryer sheet which he can't reach). So while I technically lost, I kind of feel like I won. Having a front loader with buttons a toddler can reach has finally paid off!
