Sylvan Beach Sylvan Beach has a small amusement park. The grown ups decided that the kids needed to spend their own money on the rides. They carefully budgeted, bought tickets and went on a few rides, then bought more tickets and went on a few more. It was Bike Week at the beach, there was a live band, actually pretty good, and dozens of Harleys cruising up and down the strip. Sylvan Beach is just east of Syracuse so we had to say a tearfull goodbye to the Matthews, we had a lot of fun with them. Sara’s politeness rubs off on the boys nicely. Like the brothers she’s glad she’d never had. The kids went on strike for the next three days. Sleeping in late, lying around reading, spending the whole day in their pajamas. Even the locks would not rouse them anymore. “We had too much fun for 10 days, we need some rest!” was what they said.
