Welcome if you are visiting because you are on the 2016 A to Z Post Challenge Road Trip This is a series during the month of June celebrating Summertime
“Summer vacation is about watermelons, shaved ice, popsicles, summer festivals with fireworks, and the ocean!!! That’s what summer has been about for elementary school kids since the dawn of time!
Peach-Pit, Shugo Chara!, Vol. 2: Friends in Need
Today, thinking of our memories of summer, let’s make a list and begin to replicate them. I think we can all begin with the items mentioned above: Watermelon, popsicles, fireworks…
I am going to add…ice cream cones, picnic food, picking blackberries, catching fireflies, tennis games, parades, sitting on a beach towel, wet feet from dew on the grass, roller skating, putting air in my bicycle tires, Camp Echo-girl’s camp in Fremont Michigan, reading on the screen porch…to name a few.
Some of my list will be impossible to repeat. I can no longer walk to the corner to buy my Dad’s newspaper for a dime, but I can serve dinner outside tonight, a menu that includes food off the grill, and watermelon for desert. What’s on your list that you would like to do tonight?
