Patriotic Desserts


Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It is a day to gather together family and friends, to watch the Memorial Day parade, grill up hamburgers and hotdogs, to bring a dish to share, and to welcome the unofficial start of summer!!

Parades these days seem come in second place, first being Halloween, when it comes to candy. Not sure when or how this tradition evolved…I do not it didn’t exist when I was younger otherwise I would have been asking to go to a parade every week, lol!  So in an effort to keep all the candy contained and arguing to a minimum I grabbed a few buckets from Target and put the kiddos name on them.

If you do plan on attending a parade please remember to have a conversation with your kiddos with regard to safety before, during, and after the parade.

 I hope you have safe and memorable Memorial Day.

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!
