My most memorable summer was when I was tween and spent the summer in Brazil with my Aunt. I was surrounded with excellent company provided by my extended family. This especially true on Sundays, when we always had Brazilian BBQ without fail accompanied by my Godmother's amazing potato salad. Ah, good times.

Summer 2002. Fresh out of college and ready to take on the world. I had joined AmeriCorps and was assigned to work in Hotlanta! As if to have my last hoorah of freedom, no responsibilities, and true summer vacation, I visited friends in 3 states and made new friends in 2 states. I toured the capital one last time before moving- this time actually paying attention to the monuments, historic sites and taking memorable pics in Georgetown, Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle etc. Then I packed up my college gear and drove back home to the suburbs of Boston where I reunited with high school friends who were on their last hoorah before transitioning into the 12 month working American. Of course we went to the Cape. What else do you do in the summer besides beach and bbq? Before settling in Atlanta, I went to training in Texas with over 1000 college grads. Hmmm... yeah I learned a lot alright- like how to ride a mechanical bull in a bar, that TX is super hot!, and after a rode trip to Austin with 8 other college grads I had just met... what happens in Austin- stays in Austin. Good Times!!

My most memorable summer was this year! My husband surprised us with a week exploring my childhood in NJ and NYC. He showed our 3 children my old house, took us to my favorite restaurant and ice cream store, and strolled the streets that were my favorites in high school. We laughed, explored, and invited our children to know their mom in an even deeper way. The memories are some of the sweetest I have known in our 14 years together.

My most memorable summer of 09 was when my mother turned 98 years young. We had such a celebration. It's such a joy to still have her here. She is such a blessing. On her 100th day we will have to do more celebrating.

It was the summer of 1971. I was a veggie hippie girl in Colorado. It was a sumnmer of love, work concerts and FUN. My father was a organic farmer and rancher there in the flat lands of Colorado. Daddy has long passed but the teachings of mom and him have stuck with me forever! EAt healthy!! I learned how to drag a irragating device with a tractor , to work for daddy during the day and start and keep my dark summer tan. I also learned about love or what I thought was love (smile). We wen to parties down by the lake. We'd go to concerts in Denver! I got to sit in the limo with THE WHO (the band). Hold Joni Michell's hand for just a minute. I wanted to be JUST like her! Party in a hotel with Rod Stewart and his band...I could go on! Dressing in tye dye I made my self and selling candles I made in the park in Manitou to the tourists! It was a summer I'll never forget! Thanks for the memories!

My most memorable summer was when I lived at Wrightsville Beach, NC in-between my sophomore & junior years of College. I was 20 and my job had extremely flexible hours, so I was able to play at the beach all day!

My most memorable summer was the summer I turned 16. I was "going steady" with a senior I met in the spring of that year, during rehearsals for the school play. He was my first boyfriend, and everything was new and special. Our dates took us to a lot of fun places, but I remember most the way the green dash lights gleamed in the dark, dimly lighting the planes of his face. I thought he was handsome and even gallant. To me he was a 20th century "Renaissance Man" who not only enjoyed hunting and fishing, but poetry and music, as well. I was in awe of my tall poet, and I would have followed him to the ends of the earth, if he had asked.

I'll never forget the summer I went canoeing on the Niobrara River in Nebraska. On our overnight a storm brewed up and about blew our tent over -- it flooded the campground and washed away our canoes. We were rescued by a livestock truck!

I attended EXPO 2010 in Shanghai China this summer, it's very crowded & I stood in long line for 2 hours to get into Japan expo. It was awesome to see so many high tech design & robots, I even saw my image reflected on the big screen , very interesting. I also visited Beijing , toured wherever I came to see, all the memorable places, such as The Great Wall, National Palace museum & Tiananmen Square. Sightseeing is most rewarding experience as it gives you impact & reflection of the human history.

It was the summer of 1977 and I spent six weeks in Oxford England attending a college summer program. We visited Rolls Royce (got paint on my coat and left it there!), Lloyds of London and Jaeger Sports clothing. One of my classmates and I "hitch hiked" across Ireland and I did not tell my parents until about 5 years later! Great fun, travel, learning and experiences.

My most memorable summer was 2008. After not visiting my family for 8 years I was able to save a travel to see them. I had changed so much but they loved me as I had never left.

My most memorable summer was the year I married my husband. We went to Sandals Ocho Rios, Jamaica for our honeymoon. I had never been on a plane before, so it was my first real trip. Watching the sunset, taking a walk on the beach, pictures by the gazebos put romance in the air! Five years and going strong now...

My best summer would be the one where I learned to drive. I spent the whole summer just hanging out with friends and going to the shore.

My most memorable summer (and fall) was in 2009, when I took a semester off school and traveled Southeast Asia with a friend. We lived out of our backpacks and tried to experience everything the region had to offer. We even ate grasshoppers and buffalo skin!

In the bittersweet summer of 1991 I got divorced, received a major promotion, had life altering surgery, my Mother passed away and met the man of my dreams. 19 years later, and very happily married, I look back on that summer and wonder how in the world I ever survived. Must have been the beautiful lake Michigan sunsets and the quiet strength of my new found love.

Going to the Rocky Mountain National Park when I was a kid. We camped, went to the fireside talks at night, and went on Ranger walks in the day. It was amazing and helped me to appreciate nature to this day, 40 years later.

My most memorable summer was the summer when I was 12 years old and my family and I moved from Chicago to Boston. This was a very happy and sad time as we left my older siblings behind because they were old enough to live on their own.

Summer 1990. I was about to turn 18. I had the unbelievable opportunity to live in Spain all summer with an exchange student that we had previously hosted for the year. The experience was out of this world. The freedom of being away from my parents, the food, the cerveza and the culture was something I will NEVER forget.
