Yesterday after I got both kids down for a nap, it hit me. This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend!! My husband gets three days off and we get to
get stuff done around the house hang out as a family!
Memorial Day is an important day in the U.S. It’s a day to honor the men and women lost while serving our country. It seems to me to be a perfect excuse to spend some quality time with family.
After doing a quick search in our area, I found a festival in the nearby navy town, Bremerton. They’re going to have live music, and booths full of local wares, and food. Roasted corn? Don’t mind if I do…
It’s going to be on the boardwalk by the ferry. It has an great view, and they have some really fun fountains to watch. The kids love playing by them in the off chance they’ll get splashed.
These fountains are nothing, however, to the fountains on the opposite side of the ferry dock. The Harborside Fountain Park has “volcano” fountains that erupt water every few minutes.
The cool thing about the boardwalk in Bremerton, is its free. Need a place to go with the kids so they can use up some energy? Walk along the boardwalk, and finish off at the fountain park!
I hope we have some nice weather because I’m really looking forward to this weekend! Most likely, after we spend time on the boardwalk and in the fountains, we’ll make our way to my folks’ house for a BBQ. (Hear that mom and dad? We’re coming over!) If we’re too full from festival food, we’ll at least have room for some s’mores, because I don’t care how cool the fountains are, or how pretty the water is downtown, nothing can beat this view.
What are you doing for Memorial Day? Do you have a fountain park or splash pad your kids love?
