Tell all Tuesday: Summer Snapshot

It's that time of the week for Tell all Tuesday with My Day in K and Teach, Talk, Inspire!  Whoop-Whoop!  Our topic for this week is Summer Snapshot!

I have many wonderful summer memories to share, but I would like to dedicate this post to my parents!  So here is to Mami and Papi who are in Heaven and one day I will see them again! :)  I miss you both dearly.

My parents would take us every summer to stay in a nice fancy hotel right off the beach in Miami Beach. This was a big deal for us because my siblings and I would save our little pennies in our piggy banks all year long.  We would also have this count down calendar and yes, the teacher in me took over! :)

My parents would make this big deal and buy us expensive clothes, shoes, toys, and stayed in expensive hotels.  They would order room service and let us little ones answer the door.  We were allowed to stay up alllll night, watch tv, eat lots of junk food, and play lots and lots of games.  I remember one time when my mom got so sun burned that we place cheese slices on her shoulders and they melted! We were cracking up with laughter. We would say that "Mami was the toaster!" For this brief weekend, the world didn't matter.  It was just us!

I don't have a picture of our summers because we lost many memories during Hurricane Andrew. However, the memories in my heart can't be taken away and are forever engraved!  So here is a beautiful picture my daughter took as my husband and I create new summer and all-year round memories with my little ones!

To Mami and Papi, thank you for showing me how to fight and take on the world!  

So there you have it folks, my Summer Snapshot.  Now, think about a favorite summer memory current or new and post a picture or two about it.  It could be a favorite summer trip, activity, or spot that you enjoy.  We can't wait to see and read all about your summer adventures.
