Hello everyone! This is Part Five of the summer memories series. ❤ Welcome back 🙂
Today, I get to share with you guys a sweet story that my mom (Valerie from Living Lighter in Atlanta) sent me of one particular Fourth of July weekend that she spent at her grandparents’ house in Michigan! I loved getting to read this – you’ve told me a lot of your favorite memories from back in Michigan, but I don’t remember ever hearing this one. 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
One Fourth of July Weekend
I absolutely love summer memories and I am really blessed to have a huge amount of super fun, positive ones from my childhood. Road trips, airplane rides, swimming pools, thunderstorms and camp are just a few… ahhh, I just love summer!
So, for some reason when I heard about Maggie’s summer memories collaboration post, I recalled something really simple. Here’s the memory I’d like to share..
When I was growing up, my dad’s parents lived about an hour from us on a farm in Michigan. We visited pretty often and one summer in particular I remember staying for the fourth of July weekend.
We cooked hot dogs over the fire in their yard and went to see fireworks.
It’s been over twenty years yet I can still see the house, feel the breeze, smell the food, hear the laughter. I don’t know why (perhaps I just really miss my dad and my grandma and grandpa), but this memory is so special to me. ^_^
Thanks for encouraging us to recall summer memories, Maggie!
And thank you for sharing yours with us! ❤ I loved getting to read it, and find pictures to go along with it 🙂 I hope all of you are having a great summer! And if it’s not summer where you live, then I hope the season you’re currently experiencing is enjoyable. x
How about you?
