Just a few miles from our home, there is a mini-amusement park called "Hoffmam's Playland," which is one of Em's favorite places to visit. Unfortunately, Hoffman's days are numbered. The owners recently sold the land, and the carousel, the choo-choo, and the balloon ride that Em so loves are going to be demolished and quickly replaced with condominiums. As a parent, the loss of this little park is devastating. We are trying to make the most of the situation by visiting Hoffman's frequently this summer. Yesterday, we met Sabi and Savtah (my folks) at the park for some fun in the sun.
