Today's post is: What are your favorite Summer Memories?
I went to their website to get pictures for this post, and I can't believe how much the city is grown. They have chain restaurants now! They also have upscale hotels! We stayed at The Hilton and that was pretty much as nice as hotels there were at the time. This beach is also special because it's the first & only time my middle sister and were picked up on by two Navy guys. It is such an embarrassing moment, because we were in the middle of a huge fight, and they totally stunned us when they came over to us & started talking to us.

My second favorite memory comes from spending the other half of my summer in a little teeny tiny town called Spring Valley, Illinois. Instead of playing in the ocean, my sisters and I played in cornfields and roamed the streets. I had a pack, and when we would drive up onto my Grandma's street, all the neighborhood kids would chase the car down the street. I would hop out and immediately catch up on what had happened. Unfortunately, my pack was all boys and when we hit our teen years we went our separate ways out of shyness, but I still have great memories of playing ghost in the graveyard and hide in go seek in corn that was taller then I was.
