{Sarah Eloise Latoya Rainbow Richmond is on the Left ... I think}

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, did you know that one of my favorite memories with Twinner was racing our bici's down the driveway and smashing them into the garage door? Just like Evel Knievel, we were. Dear Camp Gladiator, in the past two weeks I have A) found it difficult to sit down on the toilet without crying after a workout B) discovered Duct Tape name tags in our washing machine C) started a love affair with Advil or D) all of the above. Dear Neighbor, each morning you hit your snooze button 30 times before you actually get out of bed. I keep hoping one of these days you'll hear me shouting,"I believe in you!" out our bathroom window while I straighten my hair. Dear Husband, love you more than pink jackets with fur hoodies. Over and out.

What's one of your favorite childhood memories?

Hanging out with my brother at the park. I was about 3 or 4 and my brother was about 1 or 2. I remember he was pretty small because Mum still had the buggy.

Going to our local library, listening to the librarians tell me stories about the library's history, and reading in my special hidey hole while my mom searched for books. That and cruising through an old construction site with my friends and playing Star Wars.

ridin' bikes with playing cards vice-gripped on the back so it sounded like a motorcycle! bbbbrrrrmmmm!! two streets over there was a dip in the road at the bottom of the big hill, and it was awesome to go down the hill real fast and hit the dip..made you raise off your bike seat. awesome. i still go visit the dip when we visit alabama.

I grew up on a farm in SD and my sister and I loved to play on the hay bales that were lined and stacked next to the barn. Most of the time the bales were an island that we were shipwrecked, and any passing cars or people were pirates...

workouts are killer sometimes. one thing i have found that helps me not be so sore is eating an orange or sweet potatoes or something really sweet and a little bit of protein w/in 30 minutes. i can tell a major diff. since doing this!!

Grew up in Des Moines, IA. Loved to ride my bike down the hill, loved to play under the big willow tree where the branches and leaves went all the way to the ground, loved making a tent with two blankets pinned to the clothesline. Those were the days, my friend.

LOVE the letter to your neighbor!

Favorite childhood memories definately eating canned oysters with my momma after school (not your typical after school snack), dressing like a starving artist for career day (my brother went as a ninja), and mostly we danced ALOT

Better than Empty

I can't pick one memory, but I have gazillions of lovely memories of playing outside with my siblings. Basketball, baseball, sledding, running through the sprinklers, monkey bars, trampoline, piles of leaves, dare-devil flips off of the swings, bike rides, rollerblading... oh GOODNESS how I miss being a child sometimes! I just hope that when we are blessed with children we are able to give them the same "free range" type of childhood that my husband and I were blessed with.

I LOVE this pic of you two! I am having so much fun watching our two kiddos learn to play together and get into trouble together :)

Sitting in my tree house and pretending to be queen of the forest while singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" at the top of my lungs.

Making Woobie casts for my favorite twinners! Love this picture Emo.

Me, my bro, and my cousins use to jump on some little red tricycles and ride on down the hill my grandma's house. The key was to turn on the farm road at the end before you hit the main street. This often included smashing into a barbwire fence. Someone should put brakes on those things;)

Laying horizontal on top of a GIANT hill (the biggest one a little girl on her banana seat bicycle could find) and Rolling... Rolling, rolling, rolling down -left over right (repeat).

Sneaking into my mom's turtle piggy bank and getting quarters to go buy a Push-Up 'bar' at the local root beer stand.

Catching fire flies in the middle of June.

Playing Hot Wheels with my younger brother. :)

My twinner and I would ride our bikes for hours and hours in our neighborhood when we were little. We'd ride to the old country store and get chocolate malts almost every day after school!

Meg said...

haha I love your neighborly encouragement. Some mornings I wish I could hear you shouting that from my house...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Haha love this. Your blog is so cute!

One of my favorite childhood memories shows a rare glimpse into my mother's sense of fun... which she didn't show very much when I was growing up.

My parents were planning on redoing the drywall in our dining room. About a week before the scheduled work, my mom bought sets of paints and markers for me and my best friend, along with stepladders and a dropcloth. We spent that whole week creating murals on the dining room walls. She took pictures of every inch of the walls and gave us both copies on the day that the contractor showed up to tear it all down.

What kid doesn't LOVE the idea of drawing on the walls and NOT getting in trouble?

That picture puts the win in twin. Favorite childhood memory: being outrageously dorky with my bestie. We were a two woman nerd circus and had SO MUCH FUN.
