571 Family Time

For the last two weeks we’ve been spending time with our grandchildren in Salt Lake City, Utah; Portland, Oregon; Houston, Texas; and Hartford, Connecticut. We also spent time with my brother’s daughter and her two children. AND we celebrated my sister’s 70th birthday party and reconnected with all of her children in Portland. We have been busy, and I am tired, but happy.

We’ve had a wonderful time with all of them, and it was so painful to say goodbye. We and a few other people took pictures except we didn’t get any pictures of the grandkids that live within 10 miles of our home. What’s with that? I’m as guilty as anyone else who takes people and things for granted.

Here’s a picture of me holding my newest grandson. My daughter is in the background holding one of her nieces.



Since 171 + 190 + 210 = 571, it is the sum of the 18th, 19th, and 20th triangular numbers. That makes 571 the 20th centered triangular number.
