Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service fighting for our freedom here in the United States of America. This year, Gymboree’s perfectly coordinated “Americana” design fits the occasion to a tee! Find the collection here: http://search.gymboree.com/clothes/Americana
Every year to celebrate Memorial Day, my family gets together at my parents’ house to hang out by the pool. We grill hamburgers, hot dogs and my mom always makes the best homemade potato salad. We may also pour some Margaritas but that’s a story for another time.
This year the family plans to continue our “poolside” tradition. There are always lots of jokes, laughter and stories. We have two babies in the family and they are typically the center of all activity and attention. Gymboree’s Americana outfits will be the perfect addition to our summer tradition.
A couple of my favorite items from the Americana collection are the Flag shirt and the Stars Shirt from the Star Spangled Days collection.

Bracelets by: Same SkyFun fact: For those that know me, you know how into gardening I am. Some of my favorite flowers are peonies, ranunculus, and poppies. I’ve mastered the art of growing poppies, and every spring, my garden beds are full of them. Did you know that wearing poppies was a tradition for Memorial Day that originated from the poem “In Flanders Fields.”
