Memorial Day is already here (can’t say where the month of May went but here we are!) and I just wanted to take a minute to thank all the military men and women out there serving our country. To the families and friends of fallen soldiers I especially want to send a sincere and loving thank you for everything your soldier did for our country. This is an official holiday where we take time to remember those soldiers who lost their lives fighting and protecting our country.
There are so many activities going on this coming weekend for families and friends to participate in, from the Memorial Day tribute to the countless concerts and sporting activities. Many people take this long weekend and head out of town for the mark of the beginning of road trips and summer adventures (even though it still is a bit cold in the mountains so make sure to check out the weather before you go). Below is a list of activities around the city as well as in the mountains that will be a good time for family and friends alike:
