Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Early Childhood Memories

   It's Saturday Night - 

Time For More Genealogy Fun! 

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

A)  What is one of your most vivid childhood memories? Was it family, friends, places, events, or just plain fun?  Your first memory?  Your most fun memory?

B)  Please share it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook post.

Here's mine:

My earliest memory is of my parents bringing my brother Stanley home from the hospital after his birth in 1946. I still have the visual of my father holding the baby as he came through the front door of the small flat at 2114 Fern Street in San Diego.

I was almost three years old and had been the focus of my parents and my grandparents for a long time. It wasn't long before our growing family moved into a larger flat at 2119 30th Street in the two-story house right next to the Fern Street house. I have many memories of the 30th Street house, and can draw the floor plan from memory.

Probably the most fun that Stan and I had in the 30th Street house was setting up and playing with the Lionel train set. We had tracks through the living room, our adjoining bedroom, in my parents bedroom and into the entry hall/office area. We ran two different trains on the tracks trying to make them crash into each other. Heck, we were boys! Our father was probably the biggest boy of all!

There - two memories... there are many more!
