Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone has a safe, fun and exciting Memorial Day!
I don't know if its just my family, but we are big "summer" people. We celebrate Memorial Day and the 4th of July just as we do Thanksgiving and Christmas. I know that there are lots that do have a "little get-together" for these holidays, no big deal. Not only that, but my family is CRAZY about bbqing. Yum! Not that we wait officially for Memorial Day before we start grilling or anything.
Some of my greatest memories growing up is going to my grandma and grandpa's house on Memorial Day. Grandpa bbqing chicken and making up his secret and personal bbq sauce. Grandma sneaking in the kitchen and adding her ingredients into it. lol. All the family there, hanging out, playing outside. Drinking sun tea. lol. It was FANTASTIC!
Memorial Day and the 4th were never quite the same after my grandpa passed away. At times, I think he was the joining force, we all loved him so much. We also miss him terribly. Although, these summer holidays are becoming close to what they used to be again. Our children (siblings and myself) are coming to see their grandpa and to see their great grandma. Their grandpa bbqing chicken, making his secret and personal bbq sauce. Great grandma still sneaking in and adding her own little touch, granted not as much as she used to. The laughing...talking...family time.
I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day, enjoy your time with your family. Be safe, happy, and don't forget the Veterns for without them, we truly wouldn't be celebrating almost all of our holidays. Spend this time making great memories with your families, your children, or if you don't have children, your nieces and nephews.
*hugs and kisses*
