The Summer of Nostalgia

It has been another summer of big changes for us due to our move to a new military base.  We have adapted to our transient lifestyle, but that doesn't mean it still isn't tough for us.  During times of change my husband and I get all nostalgic and tend to reminisce about the past, which leads to reliving those past moments.

Simple moments in our favorite places that my husband and I loved when we were kids.

Leisurely bike rides
Trips to the fair

Cotton Candy as big as your head!
Roasting marshmallows
Camping in the woods
Fishing for anything we can catch
Rides on Grandpa's tractor
Boat Rides on the river
Swimming in the lake

Digging up clams
Catching water balloons
Ending our days with ice cream

We've been calling it The Summer of Nostalgia.  It hasn't been anything extravagant or costly.  Just spending time with our favorite people, and visiting with friends and family we haven't seen in a long time.

These shared moments are memories that I hope will create nostalgia for our kids.  These are great times for bonding, because you are doing something you love while you're with the ones you love.  It's these simple things that help slow us down and keep us grounded in a not so simple life!

What nostalgic things do you do with your kids?
