Even though it feels like summer most of the year in my small corner of the world, tomorrow marks the official start of summer. I have only the fondest memories of summer as a kid, when my mom would throw us a “School’s Out” Party, endless water fights in the backyard with my siblings, getting water-logged from all of the swimming we did, and of course, spending all day playing at the beach.
By the end of August, our hair had turned lighter and our skin would be golden brown, all thanks to the hours we spent in the sun.
Our family always looks forward to our annual summer vacation to Wildwood, NJ, with its miles of beaches and boardwalk, the roller coasters and water parks that nearly touch the Atlantic, and of course, the food! It’s a tradition that we’ve had for as long as I can remember, and that I’m most looking forward to this summer.
