Well, it's finally here - Memorial Day week-end, the un-official start of summer.  The official first day of summer is June 21st and is called the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year.  I would definitely much rather have the longest day of the year during the summer months than the winter.  Those months seem long enough as it is! Memorial Day weekend brings with it picnics, parades, festivals and something the kids all love - a day off school!  Sales are bigger than ever this weekend with everything from cars to clothing being reduced in price.  Great time to get out there and get those bathing suits and flip flops. The weather is finally becoming hot here in Kentucky.  We've had enough rain the past month to float a battleship, but finally a few days of sun, sun and more sun.  It's going to be a beautiful Memorial Day weekend. Don't forget with summer comes school closings and the kids will be looking to you for ways to keep them busy during the day.  Kids costumes are a great way to bring out their creative sides and put those imaginations to work.  Disney costumes are really popular and so are superhero costumes!  Create a fun and learning environment for your kids this summer simply by letting them open up their imaginations!
