What Was Your Favorite Memory This Summer?

We were compensated to share this post with you, however all opinions remain our own.

This summer has been a summer of firsts for my kids. My son graduated high school and went to work full time with his dad. My daughter started pursuing her dream of being an artist and going to music camp. However, none of those memories compare to the one where she got to actually meet one of her inspirations — Seth, from the Christian music group Skillet.


I will never forget the text she sent me that day after meeting him, talking to him, and hugging him. Her text said, “Mom — now I can die. My life is complete.”

Memory making is SO important for all of us. As we grow older, it’s those memories that make us smile as we reflect on life. Going down memory lane and reminiscing about “Hey — do you remember when” — there is just nothing like it in this world.

    My favorite memory was taking a train with my parents and my family to kansas city and having fun there with my girls.

    One of my favorite memories was swimming with the kids this summer. We skipped swim lessons the last two summers, so it was a must this summer. The swim lessons were kind of a pain, but my daughter, now 2 years old, had a blast. The best part was going to my niece’s birthday celebration at her new house that has a pool with a diving board and watching she and my daughter leap off the diving board. All the boys were hanging out on floats in the shallow end and not willing to take the plunge, but my little 2 year old couldn’t get enough of it. Girl power!

    WOW! I have so many fond memories of this summer. I guess my favorite would be watching my three grandson’s give up their fear of water and learn to swim on their own. Seeing the joy in their eyes when they swim across a pool unassisted is worth every ounce of time and every prayer invested in watching this happen. Also, we visited Dixie Stampeded in Pigeon Forge for a quick family getaway in early spring. The boys are still talking about that show and have asked to go back. I have a surprise trip planned for them in late October … I can already see their faces when I tell them where we are going!

    The best memory was saving the life of an outdoor stray cat that I feed. I found him one night ill and lethargic and I was afraid I would have to put him down if he did not get better overnight. I brought him in the house, laid him on the bed, said some prayers and placed a wooden cross next to him. The next day he improved and has had a total recovery! I was so happy, he is a really sweet cat!

    We have a few, but I really enjoy the days at the park, or outside in our yard just spending time together, and watching my kids grow.

    My favorite memories from this summer are watching my son really enjoy the park and beach :) He is now at an age where he can really play and do things for himself :) It is great to watch my little man explore new things.

    I spent a lot of time with my 3 year old grandson. We played in a creek and tried to catch minnows, we went to the duck pond and we ate a lot of ice cream!
