Memorial Weekend is THIS coming weekend. What are your holiday plans?

My birthday is this weekend, as is my daughter’s. We’ll be heading upstate to my father’s house to have a combined birthday party (pizza! cake!). Aside from that, we have nothing else planned.

Memorial Weekend is party time for many people across the country. It’s a great time to celebrate the unofficial start of the summer season with backyard barbecues, bonfires on the beach or sitting around a campfire.
