Asked in downtown Danville

What was the highlight of your summer?

I went to New York City to celebrate my grandparents' 50th anniversary. They renewed their vows. We went to a Yankee game. Alex Rodriguez hit his 500th homerun. He was given a mural of himself. It was exciting. Yankee Stadium is dirty. It's hot. The fans are crazy. They are diehard Yankee fans.

We got to go the pool and got to do swimming lessons. I got to learn how to swim. (Grace) I like torpedoing and going under water. (Giordan)

The Harry Potter night downtown. It was nice. It had a great theme. The kids loved the mad scientists' potions. They made slime. It was a great event for adults and kids being together, which is why we moved here.

Santa Cruz. My favorite ride was on the gondola and you're above the ocean. It was really fun when you're going on the ride. And I saw a caveman.

Going to Zelda's on the Beach in Capitola near Santa Cruz. That's been the highlight, man. You're close to the water. You could throw a rock in the ocean. It's just awesome.
