Memories of Childhood...

I was thinking about this today...and I wanted to put the question out I am tagging whoever wants to post it on their blog...

Things I remember when I was a kid:
1) Growing up in "Rain World" in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, everyone had raincoats. Mine kind of looked like a secret agent coat...a more dressy kind. So once in a while, my older sister and older brother and younger brother used to pretend to be spies. Sneaking around the house. Funny!
2) When we stayed in a hotel, waiting to move back to Vancouver (we moved to Penticton, B.C. from when I was 4-8 years old), I was almost 8 years old and me and those same siblings played super heroes...I was Robin, my younger brother was Batman, and my older siblings were the villains. Pretty funny. I also had this cool superball that I would bounce into the pool that had no water in it. I remember that too. I probably lost that superball doing that!
3) My brother Gary and I used to pretend that mom and dad were giants...any adult was a giant. We would hide under the dining room table and watch their feet go by.
4) Gary doesn't remember this but I used to make him hang out with me and we would speak garbly no-nonsense words and pretend we were speaking a foreign language. HaHa.

Just fun to remember those childhood memories...what are yours?

Awesome memories! I can totally see you in a cute secret agent coat. I almost forgot that you grew up in Canada . . . so cool, too!
