Family trips

Grandma and Grandma loved to travel. Sometimes they took us kids and sometimes not.

On Sundays we went to local parks such as Van Saun Park, Sterling Forest Gardens, and Bear Mountain Park.

In the summer we often went to Darlington Park. We would hang out all day with friends and relatives, going swimming or boating.

On longer weekends like Thanksgiving, Columbus Day, President's birthdays, Memorial Day and Labor Day, we went to places like Atlantic City and the Amish country.

Once, when we were in the Amish country on Thanksgiving, we stayed in a motel that had a kitchenette, where Grandma Anita prepared our Thanksgiving dinner. While she cooked, we kids watched the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" on TV. At some point, we looked out the window and saw a row of Amish boys sitting outside on a fence, watching the movie along with us through the window.

On Chol Hamoed Pesach, we often packed up our matza sandwiches and Barton's treats and went to Palisades Amusement Park.
