A lovely Memorial Day Weekend

A formspringer asked me: What is your favorite thing to do on a summer weekend?

This question nicely ties into the great Memorial Day Weekend I had at home in Connecticut.

A perfect summer weekend includes two things:

1. A cookout, and this cookout should include:
-hamburgers and hot dogs charred to perfection the grill
-good drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic

2. A trip to an amusement park, and this trip must include:
-fried dough/funnel cake with powdered sugar
-cotton candy
-water park
-wooden roller-coaster

My actual weekend included a really nice cook-out that my Mom put together and trip to Rye Playland with my husband, my mom, her boyfriend and my two-year-old niece. It was a nice mini-vacation to start off the summer. In the future we have plans for a day trip to Dourney Park, and a 4th of July trip to Virginia Beach.


  1. I've been to Dourney Park. It wasn't my favorite park, but it wasn't too bad. I don't really have a set thing I do on the weekends during the summer. Hang around is the biggest thing.

  2. I'm really going to try to make it to Morey's Pier in Wildwood this summer. It's been a few years since I've been there...or really, any amusement park.

  3. Nice plans/ideas. I can't remember the last time I went to Disnryland :[

  4. @silverneurotic I need to get back to Wildwood too, it's always a fun time there.
