Most of the moments we'll remember are those unplanned moments that fill up our summer days and nights and mean love and family and home.
But our summertime memories are also made from treats and trips and traditions big and small.
Trips to Main Street for ice cream, visits to the arboretum and the botanical garden, days spent at the splash pad and the water park and the zoo. There are festivals and fairs to mark the beginning and end of the summer season, concerts in the town square and movie nights at the park.
Our summers are always spent making memories together - but some of my favourite memories are the ones we repeat year after year, the summertime traditions that have become such an important part of our family's life.
