2nd question!

As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?

I can't decide on one thing, so here are my 5 favorite things!

1- going to the playground! We had a playground in our neighborhood that had a summer program. Every day was a different field trip! Mondays was mini-golf, tues was the local "lake", Wed was the roller rink, thurs was the middle school pool, and fri was fun and games! There was always mon/wed afternoon arts and crafts, and games too. SO much fun!! We rode a school bus to the different places, and it was CHEAP. We did that every day, every summer for years!
2- hanging out at my pool- we hand an inground pool at my house, and it was the hang out.
3- Summer Theatre- our middle school had a summer theatre program where we'd put on a musical for different groups. We'd practice for weeks, and then perform everywhere! It was so much fun!
4- games with the neighborhood kids- Ghost in the Graveyard, kick the can, Superheros (like tag with fun transformations) and TV tag were a few of our faves.
5- walking to the local convenience store for Slush Puppies! YUMMY!!!
6- watching Reading Rainbow!! I used to LOVE that show, and watched it every day during the summer!
