If you are like me, on a regular basis, if there are places that you frequent that ask for your name, it is also not a surprise when you are then prompted to answer, 'what is your date of birth?'

Many of us are absolutely anticipating the 3-day Memorial Day Weekend for the cookouts, the weekend getaways, the time spent with family and for some a day off from work. And there is nothing wrong with that, however we must not forget to honor our fallen heroes this Memorial Day either. This is a good time as a family to educate the little ones as to what Memorial Day is really about.
I had an awesome childhood. Some of my best, fondest, most vivid memories come from me camping with my family. That is what we did growing up.

If you are looking for something cool, fun and safe for them to do, then you definitely want to check this out.
