Thursday, June 17, 1926

Too tired to do much after yesterday’s stunt. Continued from yesterday anywa.

Then when things started up the Collins kids wanted to go on the sky rocket and that was one thing my boys thought was dangerous and didn’t want to go on so I told Mrs. C. to go on and take hers and my boys went somewhere else so from that time on till 3 when we left I sat on a bench and watched the coats and baskets, held the baby and hardly saw the others. When the time came I got my boys together and came home sore and tired. Good time! But never again. But I might have known. Mac’s dropped in while we were eating.

(I would guess that Grandma was not prepared for company when Mac's dropped. That would be one of Gilbert's best friends and his wife.

And why did they have coats with them in June?)

    Did they have strollers back then? I wonder if Grandma had a stroller? I can't imagine taking the two babies and trying to keep them happy all day while everyone else played.

  2. They didn't have strollers back then, only large babybuggies, which would have been impossible to manipulate on a bus. I don't think they even collapsed down to a managable size. They were only good if you wanted to go somewhere within walking distance. So it would have been quite a trip to take 5 kids to an amusement park.
