I can remember those lovely summer vacations with all my neighborhood friends, soaking in my 2-foot pool, riding bikes, sitting by the river, playing wiffle and kick ball on my street and the evenings playing till the sun went down and I heard my Mom calling me in. Such wonderful memories your perfect words conjured in my mind and heart.
