Memorial Day Appreciation
There is no better way to celebrate Memorial Day weekend than having an outdoor BBQ full of family and friends. The sun shining bright, the smell of the grill, and the kids running around, Memorial Day is a special time to enjoy the gorgeous weather and kickoff summer!
In order for parents to demonstrate to their children the appreciation of Memorial Day, parents should have their children write letters to active military members and veterans. Although this may be cliche, military members truly appreciate your thoughts and support. Additionally, attending a local parade on Memorial Day is a fantastic way to display gratitude for those who fight for our freedom. Nothing is more heart-warming for service members to see families decked out in the nation’s colors waving American flags through the crisp blue sky.
Time for a new Grill?
Can you remember the last time you purchased a grill? A few too many years ago. Treat yourself to a new grill to ensure that your memorial day meal comes out to perfection. If you are considering a camping trip for Memorial Day weekend, check out the Camping and Outdoor Stoves.
Memorial Day Menu Options
Anyone who has been to a BBQ knows that hamburgers, hotdogs, and salads will be the featured dishes. But if you are someone looking for a change, I suggest preparing these dishes: Summer Tomato and Cucumber Quinoa Salad, Taco Lime and Grilled Chicken, or Flag Fruit Dessert! If the food does not satisfy you, make it your goal to spend quality time with family and friends, maybe even share an embarrassing story, and appreciate the beginning of summer!
Story Telling Time!
Regardless of whether or not the food satisfies you, sharing stories and socializing with friends and family should be top priorities of yours during Memorial Day. Establishing a welcoming environment is essential to making everyone feel comfortable enough to share their most intriguing stories in order for everyone to share a laugh or two. Having quality furniture inside and outside for guests helps initiate conversation. A personal favorite spot for conversation is on the hammock, so be sure to check out the variety of hammocks at Beyond Stores.
