My favorite summer memory was when I went to Blackmans point in Marblehead Massachusetts.My mom and my brother went there to go visit some friends.My friend has a tiny private beach .We all walked down to the beach and we found a plastic blue boat.I filled it with some sand and some rocks.My mom asked me to go swimming so I went in with my mom and we saw something move in the water.My mom dunked down in the water and came up with a hermit crab.I was so excited i took him back to my boat and put him in it.I wanted to find more so we went back in the water and found twenty more.Big ones.small ones.tini tiny ones.One of the hermit crabs changed shells in my boat.It was so cool.I played with them for a little while .I held them in my hand and let them crawl around.I had lots of fun .It started getting cold.I put the hermit crabs back in the water and watched them dig under the sand.I said good bye to my new sea pets.I cant wait to go back to visit Blackmans point.

Last year my favorite summer memory was my first time going away for the weekend without my parents. This year once again my favorite summer memory is something I did for the first time. This all started back on Christmas Day when I got a super cool gift that wasn't even on my list! 2 tickets to the Taylor Swift concert for July 26 at Gillette Stadium! Even better a few days later I found out my best friends, Sadie, Megan & Erin got tickets too and we would all be sitting together!!!
The day of the concert was so much fun. I live close to Gillette stadium so my friends drove to my house and we walked over together. There was so much excitement everywhere. Fans were all dressed in RED...kids had red shoes, red t-shirts, and even red wigs on! Because of the "Red" album. Once we got to the stadium it was GO TIME! The music was loud and rocking! It was the loudest I ever heard music, it was spine-tingling!! It felt like the music was right in my body and I could feel the beat in my heart! She was so much fun to watch. There were big screen TV's all over the stadium so you could see everything up close. She sang all her good songs and danced everywhere down the stage. There was even a second stage set up in the middle of the audience that was close to our seats so we got to see her up close in person. My friends and I sang, screamed and whooped it up! It was better than I thought it would be! Taylor Swift put on an awesome show! The show even ended with RED fireworks! I have chosen "I knew you were trouble" for my summer piano recital!

This is what I did in the summer. On our first trip we left home on June 29th, I went on a three week trip to my aunt’s house in Alabama. We drove there, but we had to stop in Pennsylvania to go to Hershey Park for 2 nights. Then we went to my mom’s boyfriends, Jeff’s house for a week in Charlotte, NC. We went to a water park and a trampoline place and a 4th of July party. We meet Jeff’s son Trey. He’s fun just like Jeff. Next we went to my aunt’s house and saw all of our cousins. After we went to the Gulf Shores, Alabama and then we went back to my Aunt’s house for another week and finally we went HOME on July 23rd!
On our second trip we first went to Niagara Falls for 2 nights starting on August 9th. It was so cool and pretty. Then we went to Culver Family Camp in Culver, Indiana. It was so fun. We did tubing, tennis, horseback riding, riflery, archery, ice skating, a carnival, Halloween night, and a talent show. We also built a rocket and shot it off; it went really high in the air. Next we went to a hotel in Ohio for one night with a Jacuzzi in our room. Finally we went HOME on August 18th!
