However, not all of our days were dark, and I did find a few photos of interest.
Here I'm outside the front door of the townhouse. I'm blowing up balloons to celebrate Bronwyn and Drew's 3rd and 5th birthdays. (They were born one day apart, so we celebrate their special days together. It's a great money saver!)
Below is another shot of the townhouses in the complex. My brother David is enjoying a moment as a kid, launching balloons over the roofs of the houses. The houses situated behind him were across the street from ours.
The owner of the house affectionately termed the front yard "tar beach;" it was a blacktop driveway. For most of our physical activity we visited the reservations or the neighboring school grounds, but every now and then I'd take out the octopus sprinkler during the summer months. The kids loved to play in that water!
If you've moved recently, you'll be able to appreciate the next photos. I took them the night before our big move to Cleveland. Finally, everything was packed. Now we just had to get the hell out of the Garden State!
