Well Summer has ABSOLUTELY arrived -- what is going on with this heat? Definitely cramping our style. Thank goodness for the Lynbrook pool! What a life saver.
This week we get to celebrate the Fourth of July and I hope we all take time out of our day to be thankful for what we have. Yes, times are definitely tough, yet we are so lucky to have what we do have and the opportunities that we have been given just by being born here.
So yes, barbecue, grill, swim, play laugh and just embrace all that America has given us, and all those who fought to give it to us! We can always continue to complain tomrrow.
Since we are sure to be spending plenty on all our favorite BBQ goodies, here are my top FREE events going on this week!
