In years past, our family has had a Memorial Day Cookoff but this year, we are celebrating the beginning of summer in Cabo san Lucas!  We will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary along with our kids, so this is such a wonderful opportunity for us.  I am going to miss our tradition, though.

Look through this amazing line up of goodies and let me know your favorite in the comments. Let me know your favorite and I will be sending an Amazon gift card worth $20 to one lucky person!

On this Memorial Day, I would like to publicly thank my dad, Jerry D Oliver, my uncle David W Holt, uncle Richard Peck, uncle Robert J Oliver and cousin Mike Moore for their service in the armed forces. I am so fortunate to have these honorable and brave men in my own family!
