What is your best childhood memory?

BB: "I grew up on the coast of North Carolina, Wilmington to be exact. Some of my fondest memories are playing in the sand with my Mom and Dad. I remember going out into the ocean with my Dad and clinging to him terrified as the waves crashed into us, but still pleading with him to move forward."
