Like Melisa at Sweet Home Quilt Co., some of my fondest memories are with my grandmother. I got to see her during my summer vacations, when most years I spent my entire summers in California. I moved between the houses of my maternal grandparents and my great Aunt (my grandmother's twin sister) and Uncle, who lived about 20 minutes from each other. There was a great public park with a pool, a playground, and a library about a mile from my grandmother's house that we rode our bikes to quite often.
Other summer vacations I had as a child were time at Girl Scout camp and soccer camp, a short trip on the coast of Georgia several times, and lots of time spent running around with my friends.
I would love to know what your favorite summer vacations were when you were a child.
We will make it a give away opportunity. You fill out your comments on your favorite summer vacations and I will do a random drawing on December 13th, for a pair of bright batik fat quarters for the winner.
