Jill’s recent post, Childhood Summers, highlighted the simple pleasures of summertime . . . when the living is easy.

After sharing some stellar examples of summertime fun, Jill concluded her post by asking:

What’s your favorite summertime memory?

Summertime has always been my favorite time of year.  So I had no problem coming up with a few favorite summertime memories:

Jumping through the sprinkler.
Picnics at Deer Lake.
Mystery Rides with my grandparents.
Kennebunkport Maine & the Jersey Shore.
Camping at Panther Lake.
Cookouts on the patio.
Fresh tomatoes from the garden.

Reading To Kill A Mockingbird. 😀

Before my mind turned to other things, it tossed out a few more thoughts:

Outdoor band concerts on the Navasink River.
Italian Ice
Fireworks on July 4th.
Countryside Swim & Tennis Club.
Frozen Milky Way bars.
Good Humor truck ~> make mine Toasted Almond.
Home made, fresh churned vanilla ice cream . . . with toppings!
Fresh corn from farm stands.

Once the waterfall got started, it wouldn’t stop:

Riding bikes
Hopscotch
Jumprope
Dodge ball
Camping out in the backyard
Pogo sticks
Pulling weeds
Mowing the lawn
Watching thunderstorms

Jill’s post really got me thinking! :mrgreen:

And isn’t that what blogging is all about?

Tossing the frisbee
Playing badminton
Croquet
Mother May I?
Simon Says

Aah . . . that’s better!
