Lookin' good at 90

We've just returned from a long weekend away with, quite literally, every family member on my mom's side of the family. It was a family reunion organized to celebrate my grandmother's upcoming 90th birthday. We did, of course, take a zillion and three photos. This one is of Grandma with all her grandchildren, their significant others (Jason was the only one not present, and he was definitely missed), and great-grandchildren:


Lovely, isn't it? We're a good-looking bunch! We took group photos in all sorts of configurations: children, grandchildren, etc. But honestly? A large percentage of the photos have this blur in them:


Whether he was supposed to be in the photo or not, George managed to run in front of just about every grouping! We have a lot of photos where all the subjects are looking at the speeding child running through the shot!

My grandma is an amazing woman, and I only hope that I can be as fun as she is when I reach 90! She tells great stories, cracks hilarious jokes, and is full of mischief. (She's especially silly when she's been handed a few of these:)


Then again, aren't we all?

What a great gathering!

By the way- It wasn't letting me email you directly, but yes, we could totaly use the Baby Einstein DVD's too. Whatever you're willing to part with, we'll graciously accept! :)

My dad turns 90 this December and I'm amazed at how active he is. He still drives and works on his house. I think when you turn 90, you have to have a good sense of humor or it would have made all these past years miserable! LOL
