More wonderful childhood memories

I have thought about my mom and dad a lot lately miss them very much and wish they were still here sometimes but I have to remember that they are In a better place now and It would be selfish of me to want them back on earth.
 
I had some really nice thoughts of my parents recently and good memories about my childhood. One thing that I remember is every summer we would go to Kelowna BC and stay for couple weeks, dad and I would play In the swimming pool and mom would be outside tanning and relaxing we all had a great time and was sad when we had to head back home to Calgary.
 
Another memory of my childhood was on the occasional weekend we would go to Dairy Queen for ice cream as well as go for our Sunday drives I remember when we went to Dairy Queeen sometimes I would get a mister misty anyone remember those? they were more like the slurpees and always liked the blue color.
 
For the most part we led a pretty quiet life I was always so happy,  my parents brought me up very well not only to listen to others, but be respectful and to not start fights as well as to treat all others equal and respect your elders which I still do to this very day,  I also think that either It was every Sunday or every other Sunday that we would all take our bikes out of the garage we had and go bike riding up and down Palliser drive In Oakridge In Calgary for the afternoon not only did we get exercise but it was also a great family outing we all enjoyed ourselves.
 
Living In Oakridge was one of the best places that I remember living,  I think back then that was when I was the happiest I was always so active was almost never home except for when I was told when It was getting dark I had to head home, It was then, back In Oakridge that I met my good friend Shawna she lived on Oakmoor Drive and we lived on Oakhill Drive used to go to her place all the time and when they decided to go camping I always asked mom and dad If I could go and of course my parents always said yes It was so exciting to go out-of-town to a campground In Canmore it was one hour away from Calgary, it was really nice to have the late nights. I remember my parents always giving a cheque to Gwen who was Shawna’s mom twenty dollars just for food and what ever else she needed my parents were always so kind to others.

 
There were  many times  Shawna and I did things together one really stands out this is about Shawna’s mom, she had such a great heart, every year when It was my birthday that woman made me a birthday cake I swear that was the size of china,  of course I really didn’t mind it was always appreciated and was always a good excuse to have Shawna over all the time to help eat the cake and spend time with my family.
 
After Shawna would leave I would always call up Gwen and thank her for the wonderful cake that she had made for my birthday, I have many other good memories of my childhood however they are just not coming to me at the moment but,  I’m sure I will remember them at a later date.
