Sweep Them Off Their Feet
Myron Kandel of New York City, father of this reporter, and grandfather of four, created "Grandpa's Day" as a special way to bond with his grandkids. He takes each child out, separately, for a full day of fun. The dates are not a surprise, but the itineraries always are; they have included museum visits, lunch in Chinatown, movies, and walks across the Brooklyn Bridge. "It's a neat experience for both of us," he says. "I like to surprise them with something new each time so they'll look forward to the day."
