What is your favorite simple childhood memory?

For instance, winning a stuffed animal at an amusement park, sitting at the lake with a family member, seeing the smiles on your friends faces while singing happy birthday to you. What is yours?
You!

    I was always outside in the dirt, playing with bugs and such, but I was always wearing a dress.

    I lived/was born in West Virginia, and we lived up at the top of this big hill, and our house/our neighbor's house was shadowed by woods everywhere. Acorns would fall all of the time. And I remember being outside on a cool Fall afternoon, collecting acorns and the acorn hats and sticking them in my dress. I carried them as though I were carrying them in an apron.

    When I was little, my dad would always buy too much meat at the grocery store and my mom would get pissed because there wasn't enough room in the freezer to keep it all. My mom always threatened that she was going to shove the extra meat up his ass(in a joking way of course). One day, my dad came home with an eye round that we didn't have room for, and my mom told him to bend over. I thought she was really going to do it, so I screamed "NO" at the top of my little lungs, and ran over to block his ass. They both started to laugh. Obliviously, I didn't get the joke.
    About twenty years later, we all still laugh about that.

    My father had to work the evening I sang my first solo in front of an audience. I was disappointed but tried not to show because this was the way things were. He was a police officer and his dinner break was usually around five and I wouldn't be performing until way after 7:00 PM.

    He was able to surprise me and came down beneath the stage to take my picture. Most kids would have been humiliated, but seeing him there in his uniform gave me the boost I needed. He smiled at me and then stood at the door while I sang. When I looked up he was gone, but my heart was warm.

    During Christmas time, when we lived in the suburbs, we'd go to see the Christmas lights really late at night. All of us would be in our PJ's and my sister and I would stick our heads up through the sun roof with out blankets wrapped around us as Dad drove past all the lights.

    Also during wintertime, my sister, myself and our friends would go sledding with us on the hill just opposite our house. My mom, dressed in just her pajamas, would come out with a plate full of piping hot banana fritters for us to eat.

    On days so hot it was hard to draw a breath I'd go down to the ravine and play under the oak forest and wade in the stream. I have a big store of happy childhood memories but the relief from that kind of heat is one of my favorite things.
