Independence Day Preparation

Posted by

Summer is finally here! The last few years have been so interesting in regards to weather changes, and really altering the way the year is split up. For some people the summer kick off is considered Memorial Day Weekend, but for others (especially those with children who are just now getting out of school...crazy!!) the start of summer really isn’t until the Fourth of July. Either way, the warmth has finally been sprung upon us, thank goodness!
