It's the beginning of June and the northern hemisphere has summer coming up. Kids are getting out of school, it's light long into the evening, and my neighbors are talking about how their tomato plants are coming along.
This week's question…
What is a favorite summer memory?
I grew up in a small town near Sun Valley and we often head there for around the 4th of July. The resort had a summer skating show (where I saw Brian Boitano and Brian Orser). But my favorite part was the giant antique fair at the base of the ski mountain. I loved spending hours going through all that crap.
My favorite summer memories involve playing hide-and-seek, Midnight ghost, and kick-the-can with my neighborhood friends. We would stay out after dark and hide all over the place. I can't believe the adult neighbors were so tolerant of us, but they were. I'm still close with those friends and it has been more years than I want to admit on social media. :-)
One of my favorite summer memories is playing flashlight tag out doors with my cousins and then staying up really late with the same cousins to play cards with them and all the aunts and uncles. I loved those times!!
When I was a kid in Sacramento, we lived near a water park, rode our bikes to it, went swimming in the olympic-sized pools, got snowcones or taffy candy, and fed the ducks and ducklings in the pond. Best time ever being a kid.
