    My childhood memory of summer would have to be getting together with my family and cousins. Go fishing, camping, and just enjoying the outdoors. Thanks

  15. My favorite memory is driving up to Lake Erie in the summer to spend the day at the beach with my parents, brother and sister. We always stopped at a little diner for our breakfast going there, packed a picnic lunch and then stopped again at the diner on the way home for dinner. Things were so simple back then.

  17. My favorite childhood summertime memory, was with my grandma “ging” out on her back patio. I would play in the pool, while she looked like a 50’s pinup girl and tanned. I would try and copy her by putting on sun tan lotion and big glasses! I miss those days!

  18. Looking back I’d have to say it would be the time my family got together and had a picnic behind my grandparent’s house. We had crabs and watermelon, and the kids went down by the river to chase the hermit crabs.
    Lazy long days spent surrounded by love.

  19. My fav childhood summer memory has to be the first time my parents let me go to the pool by myself on holiday, I think i must have been ten or eleven.

    The pool was only about 12 yards away from the apartment door, and my parents joined my with my two little sisters minutes later. I felt so grown up, proud and happy to be trusted.

    Hope I can let my boys enjoy that teeny bit of freedom and trust when they are old enough.

  20. I lived on a cul de sac in California, and all of us kids from the cul de sac would write and perform a 4th of July play for the parents. Sometimes it would be serious (the signing of the Declaration of Independence) or it would be silly (a puppet show called Dinky the Duck with a toilet cap as a prop). Those were such fun. Then we would have a BBQ and pool together the fireworks and have a show. Every year the pinwheel would fly off the tree it was nailed to and sail into the cul de sac. It was a blast!

  24. My favorite memory was VBS at our little church in the town we had our summer cottage at the lake. Kool aid tasted so good there!!!! I would sing all those songs all summer long and drive my siblings crazy. To this day 40+ years later I can still “smell and taste” that ice cold kool aid. Grape was my favorite flavor!!

  25. Between 6th and 7th grade my family took a 6 week tour of the midwest, pulling our little pop-up camper around behind our old chevy station wagon. There were lots of “icky” memories (hitting the deer, the camper leaking when it rained, the AC in the car only working on low) but there were lots of good memories too – – it was quite a fabulous experience.

  41. My girlfriend and I sneaked away to play in a nearby stream instead of picking strawberries (to earn money). The day was extremely hot and it just seemed that goofing off was a better choice on how to spend our afternoon. What a wonderful cherished memory—we had so much fun and it felt so good to be splashing around in the water without a care in the world.
