One of my childhood traditions was family trips to Pentwater. My grandparents had a cottage there and we would visit each summer, savoring the beauty and fun of the city. We loved visiting the city center, especially on Thursday nights for the weekly band concerts. Once there my sisters and I would roll down the hill, laughing all the way. This past Thursday night we were in Pentwater again. My parents, my two sisters, and all of our kids. We gathered downtown for the band concert and watched with joy as our kids rolled down the hill, laughing all the way.
