Childhood Summer Memories. . .

This weeks Tuesday Tell All is:
What do you remember about your childhood Summers?

The first thought that popped into my head was, FAMILY VACATIONS.
I have the BEST memories of my childhood family vacations. We always went on one or more vacations as a family in the summer time.

-Every year since I was born we spend at least a week or two in Oceanside California at our families beach house.
These are some of my best memories.
We would always drive there in my family's mini-Van, a long trip but worth it!!
I love the beach the sunshine, waves, sand, the smell, finding seashells on the beach, walking the pier at night, the sea breeze, sun bathing.
While we were in CA we would always go to Sea World and or Disney Land.
My parents spoiled us. :-)

-Some other super fun trips we took in the summer time as a family were:
*River rafting down the Green River
*Lake Powell
*Mexico's beach resorts
*Vancouver Canada
*Grand Canyon, Moab, Zion's National Park
*St. George, UT
*Las Vegas
*Lake Tahoe, CA

This is the only picture that I have of me on vacation with my family.
I really need to get some copies of pictures when I go home and visit this summer.
Anyways, this is me when I was 16 0r 17. This is when we were in Lake Tahoe.
The Lake Tahoe trip was one of my favorites!
We went hiking, horse back riding, water skiing, swimming, sight seeing, it is so amazingly beautiful there. I would love to go with Andy and Isaac and Seth some day.

I have the best summer memories as a child. I owe that to my amazing parents. They always kept us busy throughout the summer with fun activities and vacations. I hope that my kids can have as good as memories as I have. :-)
