Yesterday was Memorial Day. It was such a wonderful day. The kids were out of school for the summer. The weather is warm. We spent some time tubing on a boat. It was a perfect day. Really. We went to our city cemetery which had a beautiful memorial of 1500 flags dedicated to soldiers who fought in the different wars. My kids loved going up each row and reading the names on the flags and it really gave me a chance to share with my kids what Memorial Day really is about. The soldiers. The men and women who sacrificed and gave so much for us and our Country. We can’t thank them enough and I always want my kids to know this.

Memorial Day for me, always seems to start out the summer right. We spend the day with family and end it with a delicious outdoor BBQ. I love summer. I love spending the extra time with family. I love  being outdoors. I really love Barbecues. Like really, really love. For the start of summer, I wanted to some up with some of the most delicious, perfect BBQ foods.
