Smile Fond memories

Anybody else have these kinds of memories from growing up?

Mine is after I got my drivers license, we lived 12 miles from town so finally freedom! Every Friday and Saturday night I would pick up my two friends (we called ourselves the three amigos) and head to Estherville to the skating rink.
Two songs that never failed to empty the seats and get everyone out on the floor: Unskinnybop and Cherry Pie.
Tried skating with the kids recently, limped for a week, LOL.

Yeah, I used to go rollerskating as a kid. Can still do it now but not as good or fast.

I loved rollerskating...
then blading when they came out.
I'm afraid to put them on now, I'd probably hurt myself. Plus I think they needed a tune up 8 years ago.... in a closet since then.

I have lots of fond memories. One of my favorites is going to the woods in the spring with my mother to see the wild flowers.
