Greatest Weekend of the Year

One of my favorite weekends all year is Memorial Day Weekend. For as long as I can remember I have counted down the days to this glorious three day weekend that represents so much. Here is a glimpse at a few reasons why it's so wonderful:

honor soldiers
First and foremost this weekend is an excellent reminder of the incredible sacrifices these outstanding servicemen and servicewomen make for us each and every day. It is so easy to forget that when we are caught up in the mundane of our day to day duties, but without them we would live in a very different world. We truly are free because of the brave!

TJ and all his friends at Marine camp.

Um, hello?? Who doesn't love the chance to pick out on grilled burgers and dogs after a long winter of pot roast and potatoes? The reintroduction of summer brews (I see you, Summer Shandy and Bud Light Lime) and cornhole are the cherries on top of the ice cream sundae!

For most teachers this weekend signifies the start of a much-needed break. We still have a few more wake-ups until we're out for good, but this weekend kicks it off in a great way!

True story after this exceedingly long Winter!

I don't think this reason needs anymore explanation.
