Aloha Friday....

Will and Ellie (his girl's doggie)

Summer happens to be my favorite season and it just may be because I have so many fond memories of summer with friends at our local pool. I remember spending most of the summer up at our local pool, we would all walk up as a group and stay until closing most days. We didn't have a care in the world. When I see Will having fun like the above picture it reminds of the innocence of being a child and the sheer joy in the simplest things, like a garden hose and sweet, sweet pup!

What is one of your fondest childhood memories?

I think it would be playing outside all summer long!! My brothers and I use to play pick up baseball games in the park with all our friends. We would be there all day long. Our mom would have to yall at use a bunch of times just to come in and eat. Those days I will always remember.

I remember spending tons of time at my Nana and Papa's house. We would often go to swim at their inground pool with friend and have big family BBQ's there.

Summer is totally my favourite season, too, and I can't believe how quickly it has gone by already this year! And it's been pretty rainy, too - not fun! I have so many awesome summer memories as a child - vacations in Greece, swimming in the ocean, playing with friends all day, chasing after the ice cream man... and now I'm making new childhood memories for my little boys! Aww!

Once during the summer I got into Big trouble & was grounded to the house & yard. My sister went & rounded up all of our friends & we roller skated all around the drive. It was awesome.

Oh my goodness that picture cracked me up!!! So cute!!

My favorite summer memory would be when my best friend and I who both lived in the same neighborhood went on a walk back into some outer lying woods and found the most awesome creeks with wood logs to cross them and then all the way at the end was a waterfall!! So we would go there and swim!!

By the way, I just noticed your reply email today! My internet company changed our email set up so for some reason it was showing as an old message!! I will message you soon, thanks for the idea's too!!
