Ok, let's totally step away from the Uc beast for a few here.  We all have had childhoods.  Some that were totally awesome and some not so much.  But one thing we all have in common is a fond memory of some time or another.  Let's take a step down memory lane and tell us what is your fondest and cherished memory when you were a child was.
 
My mother died when I was 10 years old so many of my memories of being 10 and younger is always held with great fondness in my heart.  But one memory in particular stands out; making little cakes with my mother in my easy bake oven.  smilewinkgrin   Ok I am going to be showing my age here, but do you all remember the flavor of Tutti Frutti???  Back then, this was a common flavor for the Easy Bake.  And I was so addicted to it!  Me and my mother would spend all day making these little cakes and serving them to my brothers and dad - after we've stuffed ourselves first!  I have so many memories I could share before I was 10 but that is the one that comes to mind most often.  Just the closeness and love for when I was with my mother will always be in my heart.
 
So your turn.  Let's share a bit about our pasts.

      So sorry you lost your mom at such a young age Sherry.  My sister in law lost hers when she was six years old and still speaks with sadness about it.
     Back to the topic though.....We had friends who lived in the country, we were city folk and I loved spending a week or two every summer with my "country friend" who was the same age as I.  Not so sure she was happy with me who screamed and ran all the way down the hill when a tick was crawling up my leg or a chicken pecked my hand as I was trying to retrieve an egg from under her.  But loved trying to milk the cows, play with all the cats and collie dogs they raised.  Amazing what we city people miss.  The serenity of the quietness at night too.
     As for my friend.  She always tells me her most happy memories are of spending time with my family in the city!!!  If it weren't for us, she would never have seen the Jersey shore, gone to Hershey Park, played with so many kids in the small park across the street.  Her life on the farm was very lonely and she attended a one room school house grades 1 thru 8 until she went to high school. 
     One thing I didn't enjoy while staying with her family......the OUTHOUSE...ugh.  Good thing I didn't have UC then.  I would really have been in trouble...lol.

So sorry Sherry. No one should ever have to lose a parent that young...

I think probably my fondest childhood memory is either spending time at our cabin in Alexandria, MN or spending one of the last weeks of summer on the north shore of Lake Superior in Grand Marais, MN.
I'm the youngest grandchild on both sides of my family so I was really close with my grandma growing up. I would spend a lot of time there and I always remember going in her room and pulling out all of her pretty clothes and jewelry and playing 'dress up'. I think its a three-way tie between those :)

It's hard to say, but I think some of my favorites are from when I would go down to Kentucky to visit my grandma. The day we got there we'd arrive to bbq ribs and chicken, cornbread, pineapple upside-down cake, 7-Up cake, beans (that she canned herself then cooked in oil and bacon mmm), it was all so good. She collected salt and pepper shakers and every year I would set out and pick out a new set for her. I would fish in the pond and play with the stray dogs with my cousin and drink YooHoo and eat watermelon. A bittersweet memory of mine is being the last person to make her laugh before she died.

Needless to say, I miss her, and I loved the time I spent down there.

My favorite memory is when my Grandparents lived in Los Angelos. My parents would wake me up in the middle of the night, we get our luggage into the car and my parents drove us down there. My brother and I would sleep in the car on the way down and we'd be there early morning. I just love the middle of the night travels. We did that a few times, then my grandparents moved up here to Sacramento CA. :)

Aww very sweet memories! I sometimes get nostalgic and think back on the good times and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :) I think we all like those warm fuzzies on occasion don't we?

You know Red I could of swore my Easy Bake oven was blue.  Do you recall what color yours was.  My fondest childhood memory was the summers.  I had a best friend.  We use to spend them playing house with three dolls called Mia, Velvet and Chrissy.  Do you recall those - their hair would grow?

Zurich, you know what? I honestly can not remember what color mine was but I am thinking pink for some reason. I vaguely remember dolls that had their hair grow. We didn't have a lot of money growing up so only once a year at Christmas I would get one thing and I don't remember if I had one of them dolls or not.

Now  I will be dating myself as I was born before tv and easy bake ovens!
I think I have so many great memories and lucky my Mom and Dad lived to be 92 and 96.
One of my favorites for ice skating on the pond ALL day.  Boys built fires on shore and we look our sleds to sit on and rest.  I always wanted to be a professional skater.  WOW!
