One summer we lived with my grandparents in Garden Grove, California. We were in between homes, since we had been transferred from the East Coast to the West Coast. Daddy was in the Marines and every three years we packed up and headed to a new base. It was an adventure for us, since we were young. There was a new house at each station, new friends and lots to be learned. Personally, I loved being the new girl in school!!

We didn’t get to see our grandparents very often, so it was a really treat to live with them. There were a large number of great aunts and uncles living close and DisneyLand was just a hop, skip and a jump down the road. We could hear the train whistle every morning and watch the fireworks from the back yard at night.
