I Scream, You Scream we all Scream for Ice Cream!!

With Summer officially here I wanted to share some summer time memories and giveaway some Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

As a kid I can remember how excited I was when our local city pool opened. Once the pool opened it meant summer was officially here. I spent most days at the pool with neighborhood friends. We had a group that would walk up to the pool and stay all day. We stayed in that pool until we were completely water logged most days until it was closed. We would then walk home all together only to do it again the next day. On they way home there was a house that every summer had the most gorgeous daisies and I would pick just a few to give to my mom. The other day I driving by that same house and I saw the same home owner outside still tending to her daisies. I bet she has no idea the memories that her daisies have brought.

Ok so to win the Ben and Jerry's Ice cream all you need to do is leave me a comment with your favorite summer time memories. Two lucky winners will each win two coupons for two pints of ice cream. I will announce the winner on Tuesday June 24th.

My favorite summer memories was going to Donner Lake and staying in a cabin with my family. Every summer the same families would come back to the lake and I had a friend I looked forward to playing with each year. We'd catch crawdads and swear we'd be pen-pals the rest of the year.

Aw that's a totally cool summer memory. :)

I don't need to win any ice cream but I think my favorite summer memory was going out and chasing lightning bugs. I loved doing that and making a "home" for them with grass and dirt in an old pickle jar.

I remember my neighborhood pool too! I used to be so darn tan by the end of summer. I also remember spending countless hours at the rollerskating rink too! Ah, the good ol' days!

Well lets see... ok I remember taking two little boys to the pool whose initials are SS LOL!! Jerry and another handsome guy named John! of coarse there would have to be the mandatory ice cream run after swimming! I remember talking the life guard into letting these two cool kids wear their flippers and masks! starting a fire storm of other kids who wanted to do the same thing LOL!! I think we got that policy changed if only for that one summer!! :)

My favorite summertime memory would be when my family and about 7-10 other families would get together for a week and all camp together. We would take over a whole camp area and would stay for a week all of us kids would stay in the lake for hours upon hours, we would fish, play games,etc.

I think I missed the contest time but thought I'd answer anyway:)

My favorite summertime memory is when my sister, cousins, and I would spend the night with our great grandparents--I don't recall them having any toys whatsoever, we just ran and played our own games outside.
