What is one of your favorite summer memories from when you were a kid? During the summers, my sisters, cousins, and I would all be together everyday to play. We would have camp-like activities at home where some days my aunt would give us baking lessons, we would have our piano teacher give lessons, or my older cousin would teach us to ride bikes, etc. Then we would all load into cars and go the VBS in the afternoon. I have so many fun memories of playing and using our imaginations to enjoy our summer days and time with family.
