My most memorable summer was the summer our family went on a Disney cruise!! I was 7 (summer of 1990) and thought it was the absolute coolest vacation in the world. We had so much fun and I just remember it being a fabulous time for our family.

My most memorable summer was when I moved to Hawaii in 1972. My boyfriend and I were in our 20's and just getting our lives started. We moved to a little cottage on the North Shore of Oahu with pounding surf across the street. Our move to Hawaii had cost us everything we had but we didn't care. We started baking our own bread and eating lots of fresh fish and fruit. My biggest worry was if I had enough bikinis!

My most memorable summer was 2008 when I turned 30 years old. I was able to turn 30 years old on a mission trip to the country of Nicaragua. Where we helped a local orphanage prepare new houses for the children currently living there. We painted, cleaned the houses and moved in furniture. It was the most memorable birthday ever. Being able to give of myself on that day was the most amazing gift I could have ever been given.

The most memorable summer was the one I studied abroad in Oxford, England. I got to travel on the weekends and see other parts of Europe but I loved Oxford!

One of my memorable summers when I was about 8 or 9 (1961 or 1962)my brother,sister and I took an huge refrigerator box from a dumpster and drew on the inside like it was a rocketship (steering wheel, instrument readings, etc.). Then, one of us would get in the box while the other two would shake it and roll it down a hill. We would take turns and just laugh! What a blast that was!! Nowadays, kids sit in front of the computer or play video games instead of using their imagination or creativity. That was so memorable I think about it often. Thank you.

Most memorable summer at age 15 in 1987, when I was sent for the first time to Oxford to learn English with other 25 young Italians. None of us did actually learn it, but we discovered friendship across borders,responsibility, Europe, different cultures and new food as we shared meals:I remember a sicilian friend cooking sausages at midnight, international calls to ask mamma about ragu' and a discussion with some turkish friends explaining why ketchup is not good for pasta. 21 memorable days of summer that stretched through the years as we grew up embracing diversity.

My most memorable summer was two years ago when my wife and I went to visit her brother in San Francisco and San Diego. Those places are awesome!

When I was 12 we moved from town to country, the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Down the long driveway, across the two land road, down the steep bank was a small river. The water was clear and green and just warm enough for swimming. I spent the summer fishing and swimming, exploring the island and swimming far upstream only to float gently back down stream. It was a summer of solitude and peace. Quiet joy. It remains in my memory as a bright as a jewel. I treasure it greatly.

The summer of 1978, when I met my sweetheart and husband. We met and fell in love and were married within 2 months.

My most memorable summer was the first one I spent in Charleston, SC in 2005 when I got stationed here. So many sights, sounds, smells, historic buildings, and great food. The summer was capped off by my getting sent to Mississippi right after Hurricane Katrina to photograph the damage and relief efforts. I will NEVER forget that.

This summer so far is my most memorable. I was able to go to St. Simon for 4 days and Florida for 13. While in St. Simon I was able to hang out with my sister, which is something we have never done and while in Florida I was able to see a good friend whom I haven't seen in over 8 years. I have learned about myself this summer and grown a lot. That is why it is my most memorable.

My memorable summer was spent, at age 16 as a camp counsellor at a summer camp for Jewish kids. I am catholic, and I never met Hasidic Jews before. I learned about the world that summer, not just my backyard

My most memorable summer was the year we had so many picnics and cook-outs! It was awesome and so much fun, we didn't want the summer to be over.

Can memorable also mean terrible? One summer right after high school, I landed a job as a corn field inspector. It is exactly as exciting as you might imagine. I would wake up before the sun and spend the next 16 hours trudging through cornfields. The days were either unbearably hot and humid or monsoon-like. Trying to find a silver lining...I connected with nature? I did get a killer tan (...ladies), and now I know more about corn than I ever thought possible.

By far, the summer we took a cruise to Alaska ...back in the day when few families sailed. My girls were young ..there was only one other child on the ship. But, oh, what a time we had. Alaska is the one don't-miss cruise in your life. Spectacular scenry! History! Wildlife! Raw Nature! Native American culture! We still talk about that summer that changed our lives...and got us hooked on family cruising.

My most memorable summer was in 2003 when my whole family got together and rented houses in Port Aransas,Tx. All my siblings were there with their families and all of my grown children were there. We had a great time.

My most memorable summer was the one I spent studying abroad in Spain. I lived with a family in Seville for over two months. Such a beautiful country and people. I love the art (Barcelona - Gaudi - Sagrada Familia), the music and dance (Flamenco), the culture, the food (paella & sangria.) Wish I could go back to that summer.

This year is my most memorable summer. It's the hottest summer we've seen around around here in a while and I'm in my 3rd trimester of my very first pregnancy. Lots of ups and downs.

My most memorable summer was the year I hiked in the New Mexico mountains for two weeks. I walked for miles each day with a huge pack on my back, forgetting how to do everything from driving to applying makeup. That summer really made me appreciate indoor, spider-free plumbing and water you didn't have to heat yourself. I also made life-long friends who know how to start fires and carry a big walking stick.

One summer in high school, I worked as a deckhand and guide on a Mississippi River tour boat. It was awesome to spend time on the river while meeting people from all over the world. I also became very skilled at tying nautical knots. All my friends were jealous of my cool job.

My most memorable summer is this one. You could make a case that the reason is because I am losing my memory. But in reality, it is because this is the first summer in 28 years that I have not had to go to work. I retired last year and I still am experiencing the feeling we have on the first day that school is out for summer. That feeling of not having to be someplace at any any particular time. There is nothing like the present.
