12 Kids Share Their Best Spring Break Memories

12 Kids Share Their Best Spring Break Memories

Kids always seem to remember vacations a little differently than their parents do.

By Lorraine Allen

We all choose which events or moments in our lives we hang onto, in our hearts and minds, and which we let slip away. As a mom, I find the things that my kid remembers and those she forgets both fascinating and amusing. And it also makes me wonder about the memories of my own childhood I have clung to, and all the times I don’t remember, or that my siblings or parents remember very differently that I do!

Here, 12 kids share their very favorite spring break memory. Their replies range from just plain silly to positively delightful.

1. “What’s spring break?” -- Amelia, 4

2. “Going on huge roller coaster rides!” -- Luis, 8

3. “One time, we went whitewater rafting. It was scary at first, but then it was really awesome. I want to go again some day.” -- John, 12

4. “The time we went to this candy store, and my grandpa let me buy all the candy I wanted.” -- Bea, 8

5. “When we visited my grandma and grandpa in Florida, and we saw dolphins.” -- Luz, 10

6. “Riding the turtles at the zoo.” -- Mia, 5 (Mom clarified that there are enormous stone statues of turtles at their zoo that kids can climb up on.)

7. “Riding camp!” -- Paloma, 9
