My favorite memory of this summer was watching firework on the riverfront, under the St. Louis Arch. The soundtrack playing while the fireworks was full of popular songs and the entire crowd was singing along. I think I'll never forget thousands of people singing "Sweet Caroline" or "Don't Stop Believing." It was just such a fun, fun experience and a great way to celebrate our country's birthday.

My favorite memory of this summer was fishing with my nephews. They are three and five and it was their first time fishing. They had a blast and I did too.


Whitewater rafting down the Gallatin River outside of Bozeman, Montana in the snow! Totally cold and a whole lot more fun than I expected it to be!


My favorite memory of summer is when all my cousins would visit. We'd all stay at Grandma & Grandpas' house. There were so many people visiting, that the three of us girl cousins got to sleep in the backyard in their camper. We LOVED playing in that camper. And it made the boys so jealous!


My favorite memory of this summer was viewing the 4th of July Fireworks from the beach in Dewey Beach, DE with my family.


We took a family trip to St. Louis . . . as a family of three. It'll be the last time for that, since we have baby #2 due in September. I'm so excited to meet my new baby boy, but I'm a little sad that Jack won't remember what it was like to be a family of 3. I'm trying to do all of the remembering for us . . . that trip will always be special to me.


My favorite memory of this summer is watching my son finally get what potty training is. He's growing up to be my big boy!


Summer IS flying by too fast! My favorite memory was going to my husband's family reunion on Table Rock Lake near Branson, MO. We had such a great time!

Ohhhh, its a blending of watching the ever changing landscape through the car window on family vacations when I was young!


Deciding we want to buy a house... that's probably the biggest positive from this summer. :-)


my favorite memory was from this last weekend! my family was together for the last time for two years in st louis before my brother takes off to brazil! it was a sweet time for all of us!


My favorite memory was going up in the Washington Monument with my family - we saw Washington DC in a 360 view from 550 feet above. Gorgeous.


My favorite summer memory from this summer was going to BlogHer! I loved having a weekend where my only responsibility was to have fun!

My baby (#4- 4months old) had Roseola when we were supposed to leave for a family reunion on my husbands side so I stayed home with him for the week. Although he was hard work, all his many sleeping hours were ME time. Plus I did not have to cook or clean up after anyone else. I crafted, ran errands, watched chick flicks and organized the house. It was the best momcation!


My favorite memory is of my daughter getting engaged. It's a pretty new, but starts a new season in our lives as we prepare for her wedding in the coming months.

Swing time for my 2 year old in our tree swing while our newborn watched from her bouncy chair seeming to try to copy her sister's movements.


If you can believe it, I actually enjoyed camping in a TENT with my husband and three monkeys!

My favorite memory was taking the kids to Chicago for the day. We live in a very small town with nothing to do so the look on their faces when we walked out of the train station was priceless! My youngest said he felt like we were in a movie!


My favorite memory of summer is visiting my sister in CO and being able to wear sweatshirts in July. Unfortunately humidity here in MD prevents it, so any opportunity I have, I take!


My congratulations with your beautiful Henry.
My father died in januari this year. On his funeral there were also the two sisters of my mother with some of their children. My mother died 45 years ago and my father has always kept contact with the family of my mother. After the funeral my cousins and me tallked a lot.
This year two of them visited me in France. That is my favorite memory of this summer.
