    The best moment was going to New York City for the first time and having two of my adult children with me & my hubby and our 17 month old granddaughter! What fun we had in this crazy, wonderful city! A fantastic vacation that we’ve planned for quite awhile! So special but we wished our other daughter could have been with us although it wasn’t possible!

    Best part so far: spending time with friends and family over the long Fourth of July. Late nights and fun!

    One of my best moments so far was seeing my oldest son graduate high school. Another was getting an unexpected trip to visit my parents for two weeks.

    The best part of my summer has been not having to race out the door by 7 AM and having flexibility with my schedule to spend time with my kids and hubby.

  13. Maegan Morin says

    My summer has been pretty good so far! Unfortunately the husband has been working non stop through all of it but the kids and I have spent a lot of time out at the cabin and out camping and swimming. Its been a lot of fun.

  14. Amanda Mullins says

  17. Crystal Eberspacher says

    The best moment of our summer has just been all the extra time with our 6 year old son! He started Kindergarten last year, which was a huge adjustment for all of us, so we have all just enjoyed all the extra time together doing all those fun summer things like swimming, BBQ’s, and sleeping in! :)

  18. Arbie Anthony says

    My best moment was on my birthday! All my friends and family came together to celebrate with me! It was the best gift ever!

  21. Margaret Houk says

    The best part of the summer would be a toss up between going to Dollywood’s Splash Country and watching Dispicable Me 2

  22. Melissa Conant says

    The best moment so far this summer was going home to see my Parents and my 91 year old grandmother! Moments spent with such a special lady are so priceless, she is still fully independent and going strong! Such an inspiration to us all, and seeing my children make memories with her! <3

  23. Jenni Lamb says

    I’ve been working a lot this summer so I haven’t really had a chance to do a lot in my free time, but my best moments have been being able to play with my son. He loves the outdoors and gets so excited when I tell him we are going out to play. It brings me so much joy to see that big smile on his face when he’s running around out in the yard.

  24. Jaimie Adams says

    My best moment has been sitting on the front porch and watching my son and daughter dance to a bunch of songs. They love making up their own dance moves and it’s just too precious. :)

  25. Stacey I says

    Every moment with my son!! Being back in school full time takes so much of my time that every moment where it’s just the 2 or 3 of us is so precious!! My son will be 10 next week! Eek!

  26. Angela Kinder says

    I think the best moment was when I saw someone I had known (and loved) for 8 years after not seeing him for several years. And yes, the love is still there.

  27. Jess says

    I subscribe and follow you! My favorite part of summer has been 4th of July weekend. My daughter ended up getting sick, so we couldn’t go camping with friends. However, we ended up having our own camp out with the tent in our living room, a movie and smore’s broiled in the oven. It was SO much fun!

  28. Diana Stanhope says

    So far the best time was taking the dogs up to Big Hill Lake and watching them chase their new GoGoDogs Pal.

  29. Amanda Rauch says

    The best part of this summer is that I do not have to work! It is the first summer in over 15 years I get to be home and I am enjoying every minute of it! My son leaves for college in the fall, so I am trying to spend as much time with him as he will allow :)

  30. mel says

    The best moment of summer so far was Memorial Day. It was just one of those strangely perfect family times…you know, the ones with extended family where no one has or causes drama. Absolutely perfect! :-)

  31. steve weber says

    so far the best moment as been seeing 5 Dave Matthews Band shows in a matter of 2 weeks in 3 different states!

  32. Catherine Shaw says

    Just walking around on the night of the super moon, when the firelflies made their first appearance of the summer and the various cats in the neighborhood were out enjoying it all too. (I subscribed at catshaw2e@gmail.com).

  37. Aline Grigorian says

    Just being able to take my maternity leave and be home and have fun with my little guy. Last week his first three teeth came in, and this week he started crawling! But my time is almost done and I’ll be back to work soon :(

  38. Kory says

    The best moment of my summer was last month when my beautiful 17 year old daughter came up (NH) from Georgia. She has been living with her father there for 6 years and she told me she wasn’t going back.
    That completed my whole year, not just my summer!

  39. Janet W. says

    The best summer moment for me has been watching my grandson have so much fun riding his balance bike at the park! He’s got his bike mastered and always has the biggest smile on his face.

  40. Robin says

    The best moments have been all the time spent with our daughter. She’ll be a freshman next year – so, is busy, busy, busy during the school year, and it’s just nice to have a little one on one time with her this summer.

  41. Dia says

    The best moment of the summer came over July 4th. Bummed because it rained our parade…literally…we opted for brunch with friends, then pictionary at a friends home. We ended the evening at a different home with hotdogs and (wet) fireworks. What a lovely time spent “weathering the storm” with friends.

  42. Katherine says

    Best part was being accepted to a Doctor of Physical Therapy Program! I have worked so hard to get in and will now be in debt, but your website has given me so many tips on how to help out the next 4 years!

  43. Melissa says

    As crazy as it sounds getting a new front door to my apartment. The last one had a huge window that would have made it easy for anyone to come break into the house.

  44. Joe says

    The best moment of summer so far is spending time with my wife, and celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

  45. Kathy Cain says

    Traveled down to Georgia to visit my roommate from college and her family. It had been over twenty years since we had seen each other…but it was just as if it were only yesterday. We had the greatest visit. Thank you God for the wonderful gift of friendship!

  46. says

    The best moment was throwing an early 1960s-themed cocktail party with my boyfriend.

    My best moment this summer was picking up my boys from summer camp and listening to all of their great stories in the days after.

  48. Anna says

    This summer has been the most unique and worthwhile for me because I got to teach my 5-year-old niece how to read.

  49. Carolyn N. says

    My best moment of summer so far has been spending time with my family which I have not seen much for the past twenty years!

  50. Courtney Tomasu says

    hmm, not sure if I really had a best moment yet. But I think it will be this coming Sunday when I get to see a couple of my best friends and their baby daughter. They’ve been away overseas for 7 months and it’ll be a great reunion!

    elizzzzzabeth at yahoo dot com

    Thank you so much

  57. YVONNE WOODSTOCK says

    My favorite moment this summer so far:
    Of our 5 young adult kids, 4 live nearby but one daughter had to move to live across the country in Georgia so we only get to see her once or twice a year and that’s hard on all of us because we are very close knit.
    At the beginning of the summer My husband and I flew (my 1st commercial airflight) from Michigan to Orlando Florida (my first visit to Florida too) where my daughter and her boyfriend drove to meet us there. We stayed at a hotel in Orlando Together and one day we spent the entire day at Universal Studios laughing and having fun making priceless happy memories together. : ) We ended the evening at our first visit to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner and dessert. We each chose a different flavor of cheesecake and then we each cut our flavor into 4 pieces and exchanged them so we could all taste all 4.

  58. Liliane says

    My best moment this summer , so far, was celebrating my father’s 99th birthday with family and friends.

  59. Hayley s says

    My best moment this summer was when I got accepted into the nursing program! So excited and nervous to start!

  60. Lewann Rice says

    The best moment has been spending as much time as possible with my 16 year old daughter. I know in just a couple years she will go away to college and I am just so grateful that we are so close and she still holds my hand and wants to hold my hand! I still love cuddling with her while watching movies! So that has been my favorite thing this summer!

  61. Tina says

    So far the best moment has been being able to spend so much time with my 13 year old son while school is out. Next month we are taking him to Kennywood so he can enjoy the rest of his summer before school starts back up again. Thank you for the generous giveaway!!

    when the navy told my sister and brother in law that they were being stationed in Florida, which is alot closer to me in Georgia than where she was in Nevada.

    So far the best time we have had this summer is my husband and I took my daughter and 2 nieces to Ripley’s believe it or not on the Oregon coast. The attraction is cheesy but time with all 3 girls is priceless.

    My summer has been really low key, but the best moment was when my parents gave me their elliptical!

  70. Jennifer Storment says

    Seeing my baby girl’s (just turned 4, so not actually a baby!) eye light up when we presented her with the swing set we’ve scrimped and saved for, and then later that night, visiting our friend’s new baby girl. The daughter they’ve been trying 10 years to conceive. It was a beautiful, emotional (happy!) day of beyond words gratitude.

  71. John Leahy says

    It’s been a quiet summer. The best moment was probably a great dining experience at a local upscale steakhouse.

  72. Maria LeMasney says

    The best moment of my summer was getting to take my three year old daughter back to my hometown in Wildwood NJ to finally see where I grew up and to go to the beach and boardwalk rides for the first time. She had so much fun and the memories will stay with me forever :-)

  73. Eileen says

    Spending many weekends at my sister’s, playing with my nieces and nephews and finally helping them move into their newly constructed house.

  74. Karol Baker says

    The best moment of the summer was watching my 4 year old climb up a blow up moon walk water slide all by himself and go down alone. He has been terrified of them, I was so proud watching my son conquer his fears!

They are paying for me to visit them in Texas in August! I’m so excited!

  87. says

    I’m a brand new subscriber :) The best part of my summer was actually not quite summer yet. We took our vacation at the end of May because someone let us use their summer home in Cape Cod. Though it was sort of chilly, we still had a lot of fun. On the way home we stopped at Yale University. My daughter and I are huge Gilmore Girls fans, so we thought that was the best thing ever! “Rory’s going to Yale.” Such a great show and such a bonding time with my daughter!

  88. Susan Johnson says

    The best moment of my summer hasn’t happened yet. That day will be August 1st, when my nephew celebrates his second birthday, after successfully fighting cancer. It has been a rough summer. So far, yesterday was the second best day of my summer, when he was given a stem cell transplant and did well.

  89. Samantha D. says

    Going for a roadtrip and camping with my b/f. Its an annual trip in Wisconsin with close friends. Kayaking, cooking, and just enjoying a week away from the burbs.
