Yay! It's Summer!
I remember for me when the last day of school was over that's when Summer started. We spent whole days playing outside barefooted.
-My younger sister and I would make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and Kool-aid, go up on our hill and have a picnic, we loved it!
-Mom would give us a quarter and we would walk a half mile down the road to Stewart's corner store. We would be able to buy a candy bar or a pop for 10 or 15 cents and then get penny candy usually with the rest. Such wonderful memories! I loved (and still do if I get the chance) to get black licorice and use it for a straw if I happened to get pop that time.
-My Mom would fry some of her awesome chicken and make her awesome potato salad and always had chips and pop or Kool-aid to drink and we would go on a picnic to Clear Lake (my favorite!) or one of the other lakes up there in the mountains above where we lived. My Dad would fish and I don't remember what my other siblings did but my sister and I would catch polly wogs and learned to let them go before going home.
-I would ride one of my siblings bikes (I didn't have one of my very own) around in our driveway and then when I was older got to ride it on the road. I loved riding bikes!!
-We would travel to visit relatives in Spokane or Snohomish and I remember staying for a week sometimes. Or my cousins and Aunts and Uncles would visit us. I loved seeing my cousins! We had so much fun!!
...the wonderful memories....
Did you make it to the end of my walk down memory lane? Thank you if you did!
