What’s your favorite childhood summertime memory?

Summer is my favorite time of the year! When I was a kid, I loved being out of school!. We’d run around the neighborhood, playing Red Rover, Dodgeball, Kickball and we’d ride our bikes. We’d yell and scream while we played Monsters. When I got older, I started watching soap operas during the summer! I got hooked onto General Hospital and All My Children. I also read TONS of romance novels and baked fruit pies as well as cakes and cookies. Those were some fun times!

  1. Mine is spending time in the water. Whether it was a pool or lake, I loved to swim.

  2. Hi, Veronica

    I love spending time in the water, too! Although I do not swim, I’ll still stay in the water all day. I go out as far as I can (on the beach) w/o water going over my head! Fun times indeed!

    The first day of summer vacation, I would take off my shoes and spend the summer barefoot.

  4. My best childhood summers were at the family cabin on a small lake in Canada. We would fish for bass, then Dad would clean and cook them for dinner. Also, we spent lots of time swimming every day. In the early years, we picked wild blueberries and Mom baked pies. Yum!

      Donna, those are some fond memories you have! My dad used to go fishing a lot! Sometimes we’d go with him! If we made too much noise, he’d tell us to be quiet because we’d scare the fish away! LOL! After he caught those big catfish(those catfish had mustaches – that’s what I called them!) my mom would slice them open ALIVE and clean them and fry them up for dinner!

      We also went swimming during the summer! There was a swimming pool on the military base and we’d go out to a hamburger place on the base afterwards for lunch. It was so much fun!

    Till I was 8 when dad had a stroke we use to go to my Uncle and Grandfather’s place 2 hours away and then to my cousins another 2 hours drive away. The cousins were all 4 years older so I often got left on my own but it was still ok. At my grandfather’s place they lived near the botanic garden’s where there were 2 playgrounds as at the back was a caravan park on the river. I loved going and watching the water lilies. Also there was a trampoline place there I use to go to and over the road from where we stayed was the town swimming pool

    After Dad had the stroke we didn’t go away but we did 2 weeks of swimming lessons each summer. Had a few day trips. I use to read as well and watch cricket on TV.

      HI, Jenny!

      Wow, that does sound like fun! Swimming, botanical gardens and playgrounds sound like pure bliss! Makes me want to relive those childhood times!

  6. My favorite summertime memory is family reunions. Wonderful food, fellowship and always lots of children running around playing games. What special blessings! 🙂

    My favourite summers were spent at my grandparents’ home during my childhood days. Me, my brother and three of my cousins used to hangout all the times. We would spend the days by going to the local market for sightseeing and we would also have great frozen treats especially made for summer. Sometimes we would make an escape plan to the nearest mountains and spend our days basking in the sun. Nowadays my summer vacations are limited to indoor reading which I’m enjoying nonetheless though I miss those vacations

    • Cecelia Dowdy says:

      Anusha, thanks so much for commenting! That sounds like fun! Those frozen treats sound delicious! Reminds me of when we used to run out and meet the Ice cream man during those hot summer days! We’d hear that bell ringing and we’d get out our money and rush out to buy some cool treats.

      So nice that you were able to spend time with your siblings and cousins at your grandparents’ home! I can understand why you miss those wonderful summer vacations!
