My most memorable summer was this year -- moved into a new apartment, did my best work professionally, and grilled for some of my friends. Just last weekend, I attended a pre-season football tailgating party at the Meadowlands Arena to watch the Giants host the Steelers. My football buddies were my guinea pigs for an experimental chicken wings recipe I peeped two years ago on "Good Morning America". They were a hit! And the first time I tried this recipe, I purchased between 80 - 90 percent of the ingredients from Whole Foods.

My most memorable summer was a couple of years ago when my neice came home from Iraq. Unfortunately, my son was still in Iraq at the time (he has since returned home safely) but my neice came home and we celebrated with a barbecue with plenty of family and friends. We grilled some veggies on the grill, ate some tofu hotdogs, played games, sang, and had a wonderful celebration! Concluded the evening with fireworks and some mighty happy but tired kids. :)

My most memorable summer was when i first moved to Austin in 2006. It was fourth of july and there was a thunderstorm, it was lightning and rainy. I sat and watched the lightning show on one side along with the fireworks show on the other side, all while eating a hotdog and drinking a coke. It was all to cool, having this kind of freedom in America!

My most memorable summer was 2 years ago. It was filled with all that we have always done,we live on the river & were always in our boat, "Our Time". Fishing,watersking,tubing,camping,sometimes just going for a nice,peaceful evening ride. That was also the summer that I was diagnosed with stage 2(then)Cancer of the liver. It has since gone into stage IV and has spread to my kidneys & they just found another biggie in my left leg...I'm in bed writing this, but that was my most memorable summer, the wonderful good of it & the devastating bad...I'm very Blessed by the love of my family & friends though I sorely miss our adventures to Mt. Pleasant to WFM! I still have friends that I guilt into going for me occasionally, but not keeping alot down anymore.

This summer is my most memorable. My 2 sons and I made a move from New Mexico to Texas to be with my fiance. It was the first time my sons had ever moved and it was filled with wonder, excitement, anxiety, togetherness, laughing, crying and ultimately a place to call home.

As a child my mother and aunt would rent a house down in Wildwood for a month every summer. I have good memories of clam digging, splashing in the waves and walking the boardwalk with my cousins.

My most memorable summer just happened: Last weekend, my daughter was married at a beautiful setting in Lake Tahoe. Nothing in my life, experienced to date, has filled with such elation, joy and exhilaration as seeing my daughter marry the man she loves. My heart was filled and overflowed more than I could have ever imagined. Those of you who have experienced this, know what I mean. Those of you who haven't -- just wait!! It is joy on top of joy!

Think of it, the summer of ’63. My two older brothers and myself in our Woodie on the way to the Midwest for the Summer. My folks were school teachers so we had the whole summer to play on Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin. We converged with 8 other cousins into cabins owned by my Grandparents. The days were filled with swimming, plays, fishing and skipping rocks….do you know how many hours we spent skipping rocks? My Grandma was constantly in the kitchen cooking and baking homemade bread, yes, homemade bread. I will never forget the smell wafting through the cabins. At night we told stories, sang songs (you know the 60’s music was the best of all time) and hunted fire flies and night crawlers (for fishing the next day). Oh, what a summer, what memories of good old fashioned fun, good food and the love of family!!!!!!

This summer! I started off this summer marrying my best friend and enjoying a honeymoon in beautiful Charleston, SC. We've spent time with family and friends, traveled, and had a great time. Good food and good times go hand-in-hand!

My most memorable summer would have to be this one!! I got married at the end of May and its been an exciting summer since! We headed off to Santa Barbra and enjoyed some great seafood and fresh guacamole and salsa..the food is so fresh and delicious out there. Since we have been back we have been grilling out a lot...from pink salmon to red steaks and sweet potatoes. We got to enjoy the St. Joe's picnic together and the Kentucky State Fair which we both loooove going to (especially together). To finish off the summer I know we will be having a cook out with the friends.

My most memorable summer was this year- 2010. Our family moved 2000 miles from home. It's been a huge adventure to all of us as we get used to a new area, a new house and a lot of new friends. It would be great to have our first big cookout in our new home!

Every summer, I would go to Arizona to stay with my Aunt and cousins. She was the greatest. She would always take us places and buy me new school clothes. She was like a second mom to me.

My most memorable summer has to have been this summer. I had so many life changing events. My boyfriend took me to Greece for our first vacation together. I got to meet his family and there in Athens, he proposed to me. We spent our 2 weeks sight seeing, sailing to near by islands and eating the most amazing food I've ever had in my life. Just when you think your life can't possibly be compared to a fairy tale a truly wonderful man can show you it can be. I saw so many sights, met so many interesting people and experinced a competely new life style. I was a world away from central california. I don't I could ever experince anything to top the summer of 2010

This particular summer is quite memorable for my whole family. After nearly 6 yrs, my ex and I are remarried!! We have three children and now we are all back under one roof and we all have a new bond and appreciation for one another. The joy in this family is beyond measure. We are praising God for our new path!!

The summer of '76, we went to Colombia (where I am from) and ended up staying the entire summer plus an extra month. We came back to the US and I started 4th grade a month late! The best summer of my life!!

My memorable summer was coming to visit my Great-Grandmother who had a huge garden full of peas, green beans, tomatoes, and loads more. I loved walking barefoot through the dense, plowed rows of dark earth and picking okra or corn to eat raw. My favorite tree was her apricot tree which was always seemed to be in bloom during my visit. I'd play hide and seek with my local cousins in the garden and trees - most of the day and into the night. A memory that I will cherish always.

It was 1999 when we bought our beach house. Sine then every labor day weekend, we celebrate by inviting all family members and close friends to visit us and share a day of summer memories, food, friendship, beach time and wiffle ball game to end the day. The event has grown from about 15 people to about 30 with our children getting marries and having their own children. It's an end of the summer tradition that I hope will continue for many more years.
