childhood memories

S. is now two and a half, and as we sat on the front steps this morning while I was drinking my coffee, she asked me where her pumpkins went. October was a long time ago, yet she remembered that one pumpkin had lost its stem and one had fallen down the steps when she accidentally pushed it, and it cracked. How long does such a memory last without photos or other support to trigger it in our minds? Will all of that evaporate when we move, or will it stay with her?
