The one thing I remember most about summer, when I was a kid was going and staying at Grandma’s house for a week. I don’t know if my grandparents really looked forward to this crazy week or not but I know my parents sure did.
I remember picking blackberries with my grandpa, boating on the river, and getting to drive his ride-on mower. My grandmother would always make my brother and I peel apples and make homemade apple sauce. (I hated the peeling but I really liked eating the pink applesauce. Pink was cool!) My grandparents would take my brother and I to Great America, the amusement park, even though they hated it and would just sit on the benches while we rode the roller coasters. It was nice to spend that time together getting to know each other even better.
