For the holiday weekend, we are pretty predictable and I love our traditions. We will spend the majority of the time on the lake. Boating is one of our favorite family past times and Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff of the summer boating season. I vividly remember family traditions that we had when I was my kid’s ages and I think that my kids will grow up, fondly remembering days on the lake. Not to mention, I love getting my tan on when the boys are happy riding around! Baseball is a big part of our lives, (I do have 3 boys after all!) so we will spend a good bit of time playing whiffle ball in the backyard and watching our favorite team on TV.
Our Memorial Day menu is pretty classic summer foods. My boys always vote for burgers and hot dogs and I already have a special crab sauce that I buy in Florida to serve with our shrimp boil! My in-laws love it almost as much as I do and we do a big spread on newspaper on the back porch. There will be a lot of watermelon juice dripping down little arms and probably a good bit of stain remover on their cute new Gymboree Americana clothing. But the memories will far outlive the stain scrubbing!
Gymboree has the cutest red, white and blue clothing for girls and boys and right now, everything is under $12.99 with free shipping! You better stock up for the summer now!
