I can see why Disney is such a special memory and place for you guys.  That's cute that you honeymooned there!

I love Memorial day and it brings back such fond memories, We'd have carnivals as kids and donate the money we raised, This is the unofficial start for yard sales, picnics and our swim club opened then too. There was always a veteran to remember b/c there are many of them in my family, I love that we made it to Arlington as that cemetery and those gardens are so special and there's so much history there.

It was fun as we had the experience of going on a cruise, both our first and Disney. Disney is not just for kids so it is a great honeymoon place too. I probably wouldn't have just gone there though without the cruise.

I remember Memorial Day as a kid going to a neighbors house after the parade for root beer floats. A memory that will always be there.

Cool, Root beer floats!  I don't know why but 4th of July parades stand out more than Memorial day.
