Favorite Memories Friday: Moments in Time...

Does the smell of something ever take you back in time to a particular moment in your life?

It does for me!

The smell of cinnamon baking in the kitchen takes me back to Fall and the wonderful memories of pumpkin patches and Thanksgiving Day dinners.

Hot Dogs cooking on the grill always remind me of summer.

Coconut scented anything reminds me of lazy days at the beach!

The smell of wood burning always reminds me of camping. {and this is where most of my favorite childhood memories lie}

I absolutely loved camping as a kid. Running and playing outside all day.

Swimming, riding bikes, and playing with the other kids we met, was how most of our camping days were spent.

Sitting around the fire at night roasting marshmallows and hot dogs as well as making mountain pies was the absolute best part of camping. {in my opinion anyway!}

My husband did a different type of camping than I did while he was a child. His family did Revolutionary War re-enactment camping. It was very rustic...to say the least!

My family slept in a pop-up trailer while his slept in a canvas tent.

We took showers in the bathhouse while they never showered...the whole weekend! {well...except for maybe a sponge bath!}

We wore shorts, tanks, and tees, while they were in full bodied re-enactment clothing. {no matter how hot it was outside! And without a shower...boy did they stink!}

My sister and I would sit inside before bed coloring in our Lisa Frank coloring books, while he would be playing outside with his BB Guns and Drums!

Despite the many differences we had while camping as kids, being together as a family, laughing, talking, with no distractions, is what we both remember most {and liked most} about camping!

I pray, one day, when my kids are grown, and we are sitting around the dinner table, {or outdoor fire ring roasting marshmallows and hotdogs} a certain smell will trigger their memories of a wonderful, childhood, moment in time...
