As much as I love Brooklyn, it is good to leave town for a few days. It is even better to have great friends who moved to a great community like Northampton Mass, the Park Slope of New England. (look at the photos I took 2 years ago. It is kinda funny that I took the same shot of my daughter jumping in the pool, that was not a plan.)
As soon as we got there the kids jumped in the pool

On Independence Day, we went to the "up to the hill towns" to enjoy the 64th Annual Chesterfield 4 of July Celebration. Last year we watched as Americans were made,
The highlight, of course was the fact that my friend Lily performed in the Florence Community Band.
My son liked the old classic cars and old engines
