19 Things We Miss About Summer Vacation

Summer isn’t the same anymore. Once the end of June rolls around, we no longer lose all sense responsibility and gain the sense of infinite freedom. Instead, we relish late-afternoon BBQ’s and wear extra sunblock so we aren’t peeling all week long.

There are so many things we took for granted and wish we could redo.
