My most memorable summer was the last one I had with my Dad. It was 1974 and we went to DC for vacation.We went to all the normal spots. The Capitol, The White House, etc. When we started home we stopped for the night at the Ramada Inn in Fredericksburg, VA. They had a pancake house next door where we ate. I had my first buckwheat pancakes,which I still love. But before dinner my sister and I went swimming in the pool. All of a sudden my Mom started calling us to come in to see what was on tv. We were!!! Seems Nixon was announcing his resignation and they were showing the White House from the front and we were walking by. Sleep was along time coming that night.Daddy died the following Nov.so that summer was special.

My most memorable summer was probably the one before my friends and I all left for college. It was a great time because we had no commitments or worries and we were just free to have fun, party outside and stay up until all hours of the night!

I was working full time at a high pressure IT consultancy and pursuing and MBA at night. After 3 years, I was almost done with my degree but battling exhaustion and near desperate to finish school. At the end of my third year, I added up my credits and I realized to my horror that I would be one short of graduating the following May! Then I heard about an opportunity to spend a month studying at St Peter's College at Oxford University in England, at the end of which I would be awarded 6 precious credit hours. I jumped on it and spent July and August as a full time student in Oxford England. It was the best thing I've ever done and the most fun I ever had. I loved absolutely everything about it, from the classes to the teachers, to the lifelong friends I made, to the morning run club we started to explore beautiful Oxford in the wee morning hours. It was such a joy to just sit on campus with my study group and let the wind push through my hair. I could literally feel the muscles in my shoulders unwinding and I can honestly say that it was the best summer of my life.

One of my most memorable summers was when I was around ten or so. My grandfather had a large farm. My cousins and I would play kickball and frisbee in the field next to orchard. I am older now and live quite a distance from family. I miss the summer gatherings. I can still smell my grandmother's mint plants...

My most memorable summer is when I was kid from NYC and I spent the summer in Onieda,N.Y., we went on a picnic at a state fair ground where I ate fresh veggie's, grilled burgers, which coming from the Bronx wasn't always available and where I got to meet Barbara Mandrell,and my love for country music was born. That was the best summer ever.

Last Summer was the most memorable for me. I was pregnant with my first child. It was my second time being pregnant, the first pregnancy ended early. I was just so thrilled to be feeling good and knowing that there was a baby on the way for my husband and me. This summer may turn out to be the 2nd most memorable. Just watching our son crawling around the house warms my heart.

Going to my first farmer's market while spending the summer studying in Nice, France at 17. I had never seen peaches so big nor tasted any so sweet. The fragrance alone was unbelievable, but the FLAVOR - wow. I will never forget it.

My most memorable summer was a family road trip in 1995. We spent 3 weeks exploring California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico. Every day, we would taste something delicious, see something beautiful, do something new. I only have great memories of this vacation...

This summer is one of our most memorable summers! My son had a mix of sports camps and a whole month of being camp-free so that we could enjoy a fun and free schedule. We loved exploring Boston and going on fun daytrips. We value playing outside, riding bikes, swimming, going to the beach. We spent time exercising and reading and doing creative projects. It was avery fulfilling summer and we are refreshed and ready to go back to school!

The summer of 1987 my dad took my brother and I on a camping adventure through TX, CO, WY, NM, & MT. We went to countless national parks, roasted marshmallows, ate buffalo steaks, went on a helicopter ride through the mountains and learned all about geology everywhere we went (Dad is a geologist). That was over 20 years ago and still hasn't been topped!

Most memorable summer was 6 years ago when I spent 2 weeks roaming Italy and Croatia. Dubrovnik was beautiful as were the people who lived there. Very warm and hospitable. How could you act any other way when you live on the water in such a picturesque port?

Summer of 2004, backpacking through Europe for 6 weeks. Really opened my eyes open air markets, fresh ingredients, and foods from other cultures!

My most memorable summer was this past summer actually. I was able to spend alot of time with my daughter. We were able to spend lots of time at the pool, going to the beach, the park, and just enjoying the sunshine together. Its not very often we get to do all those things together so it was pretty special.

My most memorable summers are the first ten years of my son's life when we were able to join my in-laws for a month at the New Jersey shore. We spent so many enjoyable days at the beach, swimming lessons, arts and crafts, looking for fiddler crabs in the sand, building giant sand communities, climbing lighthouses, boogie boarding, walking to town to the grocery store or for a water ice, or a slice of pizza. Nights were spent blowing bubbles, doing puzzles or playing games. And we ate so well with the abundance of the Garden State's fresh New Jersey bluefish, corn on the cob, tomatoes and blueberries.

My most memorable summer was back in 2003 when my husband and I met on the behalf of our mutual friend. I was single at that time and had no interest in him whatsoever but his charm, sense of humor and persistence won my heart! We are now married and have a beautiful newborn son who is 4 months old!!!

My most memorable summer was the summer I spent in Florida with my grandparents. They took me to every tourist-y place imaginable!! I celebrated my 14th birthday with them, there's nothing better than being spoiled by grandparents!

In 1986 my family decided to move from WV to CA I was entering the 9th grade and didn't want to move but my dad had lost his job in the coal mines. Our trip took 8 days in our RV, when we arrived in Baldwin Park CA my parents looked up old friends that told us that the crime was terrible and we should go back home. We did and that summer turned out to be the most wonderful vacation I had NEVER wanted to take :)

I would have to say my most memorable summer would have to be this one! My husband and I decided to make the most of our summer after some recent heartache we've had so we traveled to Mexico, Martha's Vineyard, Arcadia National Park, and Nantucket. It has been a wonderful time seeing all of these places! A party with my closest friends with some amazing Whole Foods groceries would be the perfect end to the summer!

My most memorable summer was the summer of '96. I was 13, and my sisters and I went to TN to stay with our grandparents for 3 weeks. They worked at one of the summer Olympic events on the river and we got to go! They also took us to places like Dollywood, and took us whitewater rafting!Such a fun time.

In August we have a lot of birthdays in my family. I love getting together and having a big birthday picnic. This year my Mom turned 89 years old. It was a special day. :)
