My Favorite Summer Memories

I have enjoyed reading all the comments under the Photography class giveaway. In order to enter I asked for people to recount their favorite childhood summertime memories (you still have time to enter!) Reading them transported me back to my childhood.

I grew up in the same neighborhood that my mom grew up in. All the neighbors knew each other, and we had a bunch of kids in a one-block radius. I remember on warm summer nights the moms would gather on someone's porch (it varied) and talk while the kids ran around the neighborhood playing freeze tag, and once it got darker, flashlight tag. We loved it when the moms' chatted because they would loose track of time and we'd get to stay outside longer.

Another good memory is of 4th of July. When I was younger, we would have a big family gathering at my house since we lived only a couple of blocks from the parade route. We would set up all our chairs ahead of time and then when it was time for the parade, we'd walk from our house to our saved spots. In the evening we'd head to my uncle's house since we could see the fireworks right from his backyard. It was always a fun day spent with family.

Those are a couple of my favorite summertime memories. Since you all were sharing, I thought I needed to share too! :)

Next week Sarah, from Digital Reflections, will be posting about Big Summer Fun. You won't want to miss it. ;)

Also, you still have time to enter the Photography class giveaway! I have actually taken this class before and it is so worthwhile. You have access to chats (if you want to do them), PDF lessons, video lesson, message board and a gallery to share photos. Katrina does such a great job teaching in a way that is understandable. Check here for the photography class details.
