Memorial weekend fun

Memorial day weekend is the unofficial kick off to summer and is the perfect time to be outside.   As you relax this Memorial day weekend, be sure to take advantage of the great weather. Do something outside to really appreciate the three-day weekend.

Our first suggestion is to either attend or host a barbecue. Nothing beats being outside with friends and family while eating some great food. Use this weekend to reconnect with anyone you haven't seen in a while. Set up a friendly tournament of bags (cornhole) and see who dominates the field.

This is for those lucky enough to have lake access, but take a ride out on a boat and enjoy the sun.  Not only is it a fun way to get some sun, you can get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

Take a hike. No seriously, find a state park and explore your area to take in natural beauty.  Not only will you get exercise, you might find something unexpected in your area that you didn't know about before. Plus it doesn't require any equipment and is a great way to bond with the family.

No matter how you spend the weekend, just be sure to take time to understand Memorial day. It is important to remember the reason for the holiday, to think about the service men and women who gave their lives to protect this country and freedom. Rogan's Shoes supports our veterans and Memorial day.
