It's the holiday weekend! Well almost. We are heading up to the lake after work (big shocker there, I know.) We have some more work to do on the bathroom, and hopefully we can get outside and get some work / relaxation done out there. The boat lift has to get in the water, and gardens have to be tended to.

The weather doesn't look too bad, hopefully it will warm up for the unofficial beginning of Summer. Woohoo! I know some of you will be traveling this weekend also. If you are traveling, travel safe, and most of all, Have a great weekend. Also, let's not get all wound up in the celebration of summer, and forget the real reason we all get a day off.
From Wikipedia:
Memorial Day is a United States Federal Holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May (observed in 2008 on May 26). It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it was expanded to include those who died in any war or military action. One of the longest standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911. It is also traditionally viewed as the beginning of summer by many, since many schools are dismissed around Memorial Day.

So enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend, but don't forget take a few minutes to honor all those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.
