Since 1885, we’ve been celebrating the birth of George Washington though today we usually refer to the third Monday in February as Presidents’ Day. It is today that we honor the 44 men who have held the office of President of the United States of America and all they’ve done. But did you know any of these fun facts?
By the time 4th of July rolls around, we’re in the thick of summer. It’s hot; our kids are getting restless; and it’s been a few weeks since the last good summer party. Lucky for us, the joyous, rowdy national holiday arrives just in time, complete with parades and fireworks to set the festive mood. Like many celebrants, you may be hitting the beach or the park this year for a picnic, then catching fireworks once the sun sets. It’s a common and beloved routine, so perfectly simple you might find yourself searching for a way to spice things up…
Ever made ice cream from scratch? That’s right, no more excuses. Let this summer be an opportunity to undertake some new projects you’ve had your eye on but haven’t had the time/patience to try out. Case in point: homemade ice cream!
Ginger and peaches come together in this refreshing recipe to create the perfect summer dessert. Your kids will love it; your friends will beg you for the recipe; and Independence Day will go off will all the spice and spark it deserves.
