Watch Out Children…You Never Know What Might be Lurking in the Dark

Monsters are never as cute as they look in the pictures

What’s your favorite memory of summer?

Does it involve the lake?  A beach perhaps?  Does summer conjure up images of family, swimming, warm sunny days and lazy nights?

For me…one of the most vivid memories of summer for me revolves around…a monster.

This is not a hide under your bed monster or one that stays confined to the closet in your room.  No, this one roams in the dark and strikes unexpectedly, to the exact place you feel safest…family vacation.

No children, you are not safe.

I was asked to be a part of Ashley’s series, A Childhood Summer, where she asked people to recount their childhood memories of summer.  I decided it was time to break the silence 😉

Check out my guest post here.

  1. Icey cold watermelon, eaten outside on the porch after supper, seeing who can spit the seeds the farthest with my cousins..
    and all the summer fruits and vegs every night for supper..
    and being home when the street lights come on, to catch lightening bugs in a jar, while my mom washes the porch and water the plants, both of us barefooted, and the water so cooling after the heat..Thanks for letting me be a summer kid again no matter how old!

  2. This past weekend I went up to the sleepaway camp I went to for 6 years and then worked at for another 3. Every summer memory I have is from that place 🙂
