From ice cream to lightning bugs

11 May

One of the prompts given on Mama Kat’s site this week was to list my top 10 favorite things about summer growing up.  Without further ado:

1.  Running down the street with change in hand to catch the ice cream truck

2.  Feeling my stomach jump up into my chest as I jumped from the high dive at the city pool in Baker Park

3.  Watching cartoons and the old Batman TV show in the cool comfort of the basement on hot afternoons

4.  Running through the sprinkler and flying down the slip-n-slide

5.  Riding bikes down to 7 Eleven to buy slurpees and candy

6.  Feeding the ducks at the pond in Baker Park

7.  Eating junk food at the Thurmont carnival and riding rides into the night

8.  Watching the 4th of July fireworks at Ft. Detrick from my best friend’s backyard

9.  Going to my Aunt Ila’s house for entire weekend sleepovers

10.  Chasing lightning bugs around the yard to catch them in my insect cage

Your turn!  What are your 10 favorite things about summer growing up?
