Most holidays here are reserved for family. Memorial holiday is one of them. Sure, it's a way to salute the veterans who sacrificed their lives for our country but it has now evolved into something totally family-oriented.
I don't mind it. It's a way to spend time with your loved ones. But I stopped doing that a long time ago.
Now, Memorial Weekend marks our soft-opening for summer. We have made it a tradition to go to the beach (most of the time we go to Rehoboth Beach, DE), lay out for a couple of hours, go back to the hotel to take a shower and eat out. After that, it's one night of dancing and partying. Then, we wake up early the next day to go to the outlets and do some credit card damage while shopping.
My favorite part of the whole weekend?
Eating crabs at Lazy Susan's Hot Fat Crabs! Yes! It's a must-do if you ever go to Rehoboth Beach. You will love the experience (unless you're allergic to seafood). I can promise you at least a nice meal, a great way to end the weekend - - and good memories to take home.
Love ya all!
