Weekend plans?

This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend – and marks the kick off to the summer for most of us.  For those of us with a three day weekend, we better be making plans!  Here are some ideas for you:

  • Attend a parade.  Some of my best childhood memories are from attending the parade in Buckland, Ohio with my family.
  • Host a barbecue – what’s better than a grill filled with food with friends and family around?  Did you watch the video I posted on cleaning your grill?  If not – click here and get it done!
  • Attend a local ceremony, event or festival.  Almost every community has a gathering of some type to honor our military and celebrate the community.  So go to the wreath laying, run a 5K or listen to a band with the other members of your community!
  • Road trip!  Memorial Day weekend is great for a getaway.  It might be a good time to visit a historical landmark, or museum – or maybe a beach?
  • Cheer!  Is there a baseball game at your local park?  Is the hometown pro team playing?  Baseball is still the great American pass time – and it’s a great weekend to root for your favorite team.
  • DIY.  I love a good three day weekend for getting things done around the house.  3 days is the perfect amount of time to tackle a room makeover or get your garden planted.  So head out to your hardware store and let’s get a project done this weekend!
  • Relax….  Sleep in or take an afternoon nap in the sun.  Sounds great doesn’t it?  I know if the weather cooperates, you’ll be able to find me in a lounge chair by the pool with a good book for part of the weekend.

Get your plans made – but don’t forget to take time out to remember the members of our military!
