When I was younger (like 8 and under) I used to have blond hair. Not dirty blond but fully blond. As I grew up my hair naturally turned brown and now its completely brown. I was wondering if this happened to anyone else. I always thought it was weird and maybe it was due to the lack of sun coming from from further north because my hair color always seems lighter in the summer.

Yes, it's natural for the hair to turn a darker shade as we get older. A hairdresser told me that there's no such thing as a "natural blonde" at the age of 40 because hair would have at least turned to a shade of very light brown.
This doesn't include (summer) highlights, which naturally appear after we spend time on the beach, hiking, etc. People who are out doors a great deal throughout the year tend to retain their highlights.
Friend of mine has twins who say her hair has "sparkles" in it -- that's the new little white hairs. Pesky little suckers. Anyway, that's the only natural "blonde" you'll see in a person in their 40s.
Apparently anyone in their 30s/40s who is "blonde" is having their hair touched up regularly.0
