From Gabby Douglas to the RNC: Remembering The Summer of 2012

Posted: Updated:

Labor Day is upon us and with it comes the beginning of the end of the Summer of 2012. It's amazing how quickly the days go by. It seems like just yesterday we were planning Memorial Day BBQs, Juneteenth commemorations, and Fourth of July excursions. Now it's back to school shopping, fall fashion, and NFL Football.

But before the sun sets on the summer of 2012 - we wanted to take a look back at some of its more interesting happenings. From Gabby and Serena's awesome athletic exploits to our president navigating the murky waters of country-running and reelection campaigning, 2012 produced more than its share of unforgettable moments.

A few of our readers were kind enough to share their personal favorite memories from this summer, and we've put together a few of our own. Check it out below and feel free to add a few memories of your own.
