The house I spent a lot of time at

This may seem like an ordinary house but this house is way more important than that to my family. 9 Tremont Avenue in Brentwood, New York created wonderful memories for three generations. This was the first house my grandparents settled in America. They had been moving around for a decade and now they had found their permanent home. This home was the place where my cousins and I would meet most weekends and spend time with our grandparents. We always had such a fun time there mainly because my grandpa was the best. He loved all of us and he would do anything for us. He got a pool for us so our summers would be more fun when we went there. All of my memories of my grandpa being healthy occurred at this house so that it was one of the main reasons why I cherish it so much. My grandma also loves us a lot. She bought a basketball hoop in the driveway for me because she knew I loved basketball. My cousins and I did not realize how important this house was until it was our last time there before it was sold. My older cousin and I wrote our names on the walls in some of the rooms and wrote down important dates for our family. It is very sad to see that the house is gone but at least I can cherish these memories for the rest of my life.
