Cold, sweet watermelon, yum! They didn't have seedless watermelon when I was a child or I would have eaten a lot more of it- something about spitting seeds out all over the place didn't appeal to me.
Another summertime favorite was to go roller skating. Oh, how I loved to roller skate.
Remember skates like these? We had a key to tighten them...and wore the key on a shoelace around our necks.
I loved the smell of freshly mowed grass. We used a push mower like this.
My first job ever was mowing lawns with a mower just like this one.
Mom loved to take us to Lake Michigan to go swimming.
( That was before it became too polluted to swim in. )
Sunglasses, suntan lotion, cold beverages and a good book were always in our beach bags
Lake Michigan wasn't-isn't this clean.... but I wanted to use a pretty picture for this...lol.
While looking for pictures, I found this and it reminded me of Mom and the beach.
