Memorial Day Weekend Memories #99SummerDays #HebrewNational

Memorial Day weekend was a fun filled weekend. I got to spend with family and friends. It was a time for us to give thanks to my grandfather and all the other men and women who have served our country. Our Memorial Day weekend was filled to the brim with food, fun, family, friends, sun, and water. Every year it’s the same tradition for us, but we never tire of it. I’ll give you a hint:
On the bay

Summer Fun
Memorial Day Happenings

We had a blast playing games on our game consoles, I am still determined to beat my kids at twister on the PS3. We watched movies, and sung along when the movie was Pitch Perfect. Last, but definitely not least we spent the day at the beach and bay. Living in Florida, our Memorial Day weekends are spent on the beach playing in the waves or meeting up with family at the bay and boating for hours on end. After we come in for the day, we love to wind down and just enjoy one another’s company. It’s our favorite way to start the summer.

Grilling out, honoring those who have served, and sharing stories, makes for a great weekend. One of our favorite brands to grill out, is Hebrew National, the all beef franks are tasty (and great for my mother who can’t eat hotdogs normally because of turkey that’s in most franks). As a family, we can all create our hotdogs the way we like, this time we went with simple toppings and paired the franks with my perfect sweet tea (it’s a summmer staple for us southerners)

Hebrew National Hotdogs

It’s a secret recipe (or so I tell myself) but I want you all to have the sweetest summer ever so I shall share my sweet tea recipe with you!

Perfect Sweet Tea


  • Gallon sized tea container
  • Family size tea bags of Lipton decaf tea
  • Sugar
  • Water


  • In a 2 qt pot, fill with water and add tea bags.
  • Bring to a boil, remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • While waiting add sugar to tea pitcher.
  • Remove tea bags and pour hot tea over sugar, stir.
  • Finish filling up tea pitcher with cold water and enjoy!
