Super cliche, but summer vacation. Where I grew up in Naperville, IL, all of my friends lived close by, so we would ride our bikes over to each others' houses, and play, or go exploring, into the woods, to the stream to catch tadpoles, to unfinished houses to run around in the maze-like foundations. The river walk was a great park that followed the DuPage River that flows through downtown Naperville, and I always remember going to Oberweis ice cream shop in the summer to get some respite from the heat and humidity. The 4th of July fireworks every summer were also great, though I was always more excited about setting off smoke bombs and roman candles everywhere. Hmmmm, between all of that and my frog jump experiences, I feel like my childhood gives off a very Mark Twain vibe.
