Summer Time!Monday, May 25, 2009
Parade, concerts, graduation, lemonade and warm sunny weather - yes, summer is definitely here!
Just spent the entire weekend with the family – walking, running, bike riding (yes, I didn’t realize I know how to ride a bike!), swimming and getting sunburn (not good).
There are always a lot of things to do but when your child asks you to go bike riding or ride the scooter, you just have to be flexible and enjoy the moment with your child. I still remember the fun summer memories at my lolo and lola’s house in the province.
I remember complaining having to take siesta (afternoon nap) right after lunch. Now I wish I can take a nap! My cousins and I would be laying on a rattan mat and force ourselves to sleep – we just chatted until we fell asleep.
I remember the cold halo-halo ( Filipino fruit shake) , banana-q (sweet banana on a stick cooked with brown sugar) and bibingka ( Filipino pound cake) and just enjoying being a kid!
I remember swimming in the river and almost getting lost for a day with my cousins!
I remember riding the horse in the farm and picking different kinds of tropical fruits.
I remember just having fun being a kid!
As I look back, these memories do make me smile. I hope my children will remember the fun times we spent together, too.
What’s your most memorable summer childhood memory?
