Rocket pops, creek stomping, and sleeping late are just some of the things we would do this summer if we were kids. What would you do? Sponsored by Sony.
Every June, I watch kids enviously as the school year dwindles and the excitement builds. Summer holds so much promise when you’re young: You can do practically anything now that you’re not spending six hours a day in school, your bedtime is extended, and you can sleep till quarter-past whenever. And there’s that whole, “no more teachers, no more books” thing. Here are a few things I'd do this summer if I were still a kid—What would you do? What about summer makes you miss being a kid? Tell us why you wish you were a kid again by posting a comment below. Need more summer inspiration? Grown Ups 2, starring Adam Sandler, comes to theaters July 12.

Fresh produce, baked items and handmade crafts — sold directly from farmer or artist to the customer — have made farmers markets a popular feature of small towns each summer and fall. Beginning this year, Milford could have its own. Resident David Morganelli has asked town officials to explain what permits or permission might be required for Milford to host its own farmers market beginning this year, possibly at Fino Field. Morganelli, an attorney, is a member of the town's Finance Committee. He said in a phone interview that he sent the letter to the Board of Selectmen to see what might be required to establish a farmers market in Milford. He recently learned that Hopkinton's market has thrived for eight years, and thought the idea might …
