I have a lot of good childhood memories but my favorite one would be the when I went to Los Angeles with my family for the first time. It was so much fun and the reason why I love LA and California so much. What is your favorite childhood memory and why?

Ridding my horse bare back, with no shoes on. Just walking slowly, and relaxing, enjoying the nature and the sounds. Hugging her neck while we walk further into the country side. The creek's water running fast. The trees and the hill's. The feeling of freedom. No worry's or pain. Take care.

That sounds so relaxing. I miss those times when I ran around freely and did whatever I pleased. I loved having nothing to worry about or regretting. Happy mylotting!

favorite? don't know that I have a favorite... the EARLYEST one I have I remember looking down from a dark space (thru a window I'm going to guess) and seeing my mother and brother making me a snowman. I don't know how I knew that it was my mother and brother, well, they did turn and wave at me, but they were so small and far away. Let me explain. I was born in late November of 1953. We moved to Texas in the late summer of 1955. So, the only time this could've happened was the winter of 1954-5 before we moved to Texas. I do kind of remember being angry that I wasn't there, probably why I have any memory of it at all. but a favorite memory... not really I do remember that being 5 was good, I think the summer I was 5 must've been really good.

That is very interesting. I don't remember much when I was very little but I could ask my parents and sister and they can always help me remember. Hmm... Sadly I don't remember being 5. But I do remember that being 12 was really fun and good as well besides the constant worry that I might move back any time, it was good. Your summer when you were 5 must have been really good if you remember it so well and like it. Happy mylotting!

At this point - 50 years later - I really don't remember a WHOLE lot about being 5, just that I was really happy that year. Its like my snowman story, I really can't remember too much of the "look" of the story, but I've told it to people for so many years, I know the story. Ahhh, the joy of getting old.

I have those kind of memories too. I remember things no one else in my family can remember and vice versa. My sister once told me about how we visited this museum in Los Angeles, and I wanted to high-five a statue, but my sister told me not to. Of course, being a little kid, I high-fived he statue and we got in a little trouble with the museum people that saw us. But I have no memory of that but I can still imagine it. Happy mylotting!

I have fond memories of all the time I spent staying with my grandparents. They are no longer alive for many years. I am the oldest and when school holidays came round I spent the whole time with my grandparents as that was one less at home I guess. I loved those holidays. We would do things I never usually did at home. Go on trips, visit places, go shopping on the bus which was a novelty for me then as we'd go in the car when I was at home. My grandparents lived in the country and kept chickens too and had a huge garden. I lived in a big town and country life was so different but I enjoyed it a lot and always looked forward to going to stay wirh them. Very treasured memories I have of those times.

Wow! I wish I had that kind of memories. I never knew my grandfather as both of them passed away before I was born and I spent most of my Korean childhood with my grandmother and sister as both of my parents worked back then. I usually hung out with my friends then also. I wish I had grandparents that did that kind of thing with me. Well, thanks for sharing and happy mylotting!

i often recall the preiod of my childhood, i lived in the north of china, and when i was yong, the winter is much more colder than now. the ground was covered by snow thickly. we play on the snow, made snowmen, threw snowballs to each others. We were so happy, I will never be happier than that...

Wow! I would have been very happy too. I love the snow and that sounds like my dream, playing in the snow, making snowmen, and having snowball fights. I hope you can be happier than that some day. Happy mylotting!
