Friday, August 21, 1925

Friday, August 21, 1925

The boys had been wanting to “take a travel” and eat their lunch somewhere but the rain kept them in yesterday. This was fair and cooler so they started out. Went to Ellenberger Park, with their lunch. Came back in four hours; three, tired, happy little travelers. Gilbert went to a Mardi Gras on Penn St. instead of painting. He doesn’t care about how ugly things are around here.

(I'm going to assume that Grandma's harsh words about Gilbert were because she was in her last trimester of pregnancy and just wanted the house to look nice before she had the next baby. He was probably thinking he had all day Saturday to work on the painting. That said, I am somewhat surprised Gilbert would stay downtown for a Mardi Gras event versus come straight home after work.

Three happy little travelers appoximately 9, 7, and 5 years old go went by themselves to a park to picnic. That's quite young these days for that kind of independence!)
