Bloom Family Reunion - 2017

Jo's Ranch House in Valley Glen

It was hot, hot, hot in the San Fernando Valley on Saturday, but in spite of the heat, we managed to have a wonderful Bloom Family Reunion. My cousin Jo has the PERFECT house in Valley Glen for large groups. The living room, dining room and kitchen are roomy (air-conditioned) and they lead outside to a covered patio and barbecue. The pool area is really beautiful and there are places in the yard to catch some shade.

I'd estimate that there were about 40 of us in attendance, coming from New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Riverside, Fallbrook and various areas of Los Angeles. We were missing our family from Santa Barbara, Chicago, New York and North Carolina, but maybe next year!

Everyone brought side dishes and beverages to share. The A,B,Cs brought hot-dogs, knockwurst and all the fixin's. Needless to say, we had plenty of food!
We NEVER run out of food at family gatherings

A few people left early, but we managed to corral everyone else for our traditional group photo. Thanks to Larry and Patrick for clicking the pix!
