From age 5 till 17 I spent the entire month July in Canada at my grandparents cabin. That was the best time ever. Fishing, swimming, swimming some more then fishing then back in the water. I think I was waterlogged by the end of July. Oh and I soooo need that Mini-bud!

I'd like to win this thing. We used to vacation on the tip of Michigan's thumb, at Grindstone City. There was an old motel, called the "Sandy Beach Motel" ( guess what, no sand!) where we stayed cheap. They had 6 rowboats, that my sister and I could shove out into Lake Huron and row around. We probably went there 7 or 8 years , for a week or two each time. A great childhood.

Wow, I could use that dish and finally get into FTA TV, and get STO and Cox Sports!

Anyway, Seeing the Blue Angels every year at Seafair. Well, I actually still do that. But ever since I was a little kid, summer has been marked by the blues!

my favorite summer time activity growing up was camping, we never had the money to fly anywhere or stay in a hotel so we always drove and camped along the way. I remember the camping more then the destination often. haha.

still to this day Id rather be in a pup tent then a stuffy hotel.

My favorite summer activity while growing up, was vacationing in Northern Wisconsin. We would go camping and fishing. I remember catching 2 Muskies one year. One was 27 inches long.

Thanks for giving away another mini BUD. I would love to win this one.:up

oh gosh you're going to make me strain my brain going that far back....

Well, I guess what I have the most pleasant memories of is taking a little red wagon out to the field at the end of the block and picking berries in the evenings when it was cooler. We would fill the wagon to overflowing with berries then take them back home to wash, sort and pick through.

I would help mom make berry jelly in Mason jars and we sealed them with Gulf wax.
I used to like to stick my fingers in the hot wax. :rolleyes:

I was also always trying to sneak a spoonful of sugar when mom wasn't looking. :p
She usually would catch me. She would always tell me she had eyes in the back of her head. I believed that for a loooong time.

From the time I was ten till the end of High School, Dad would gather the whole family and we drove from Torrance CA to Bass Lake, just outside the Yosemite South Gate, and spend four weeks. Dad would set up the tent and the area for our camp, then leave my two sisters and I with Mom and he would go back to Torrance to work the next two weeks before he could come back and vacation with us.

Now, THAT brings back memories, camping, cannoeing, singing with the whole camp ground gathered around as the Sorrensons (haven't thought of them in YEARS) sang and played every imaginable musical instremunt you could get into a camp ground.

And I would LOVE to put up a C Bander so I could catch some more BB games.

As Bob Hope always said, “Thanks for the memories.”

Ah, the lazy hazy days of summer! They were the pits when you live in a small apartment in NYC with no air conditioning. Dad would take us, Mom, me and my five brothers, down to the Jersey Shore to escape the city heat and humidity. We would go to a park on Barnegat Bay. It had a small bay beach and a shaded picnic area. We picnic and crab all day; we normally caught enough crabs to have dinner before we went home. Dad would break out his camping stove and Mom would make spaghetti and crab sauce. We would pick up a watermelon from the many farmers markets that we pass on the way to the beach. Ice it down and after the spaghetti and crabs dinner we were all rewarded a large slice of watermelon for dessert. It was fun to have a pit-spitting contest with my brothers.

Ahh... Summer.

Which for me meant packing up and leaving for a week to tour our nations Great National Parks. Even though that didn't mean we left the state, I learned to love long car rides, being a polite quiet neighbor around the campground and the cold, hard ground as a bed. I love it :D

Oh how I love the smell of the firs and pines mixed with humid cool air. The glow and heat of burning wood and propane

And no electronics to boot! Not that I didn't envy the RV'ers with their electricity and TV. Ruins the experience for me really.

Detox for the mind, being outdoors.

AH. spending time as family going for long walks on the nature trails, enjoying God's green Earth. :):):)

My favorite summertime activity while growing up, which I looked forward to every year, was traveling around the United States with my parents in their motorhome. Thankfully, gas was much cheaper when I was young :) ... Wouldn't be able to do those trips these days without taking out a new mortgage. By the way, my current favorite summertime activity is staying indoors and avoiding the tropical heat!

My favorite summer activity was playing baseball in a sandlot, we played it from early morning till dusk. It was almost a daily thing.

Way back when i was a youngster, mom and dad always took us kids camping a couple of times every year to different places in the state. I think by the time i was 10, i'd swimmed/fished every pond in Indiana.
BTW, That mini bud sure would look pretty with all the other dishes on the farm :D
