Happy Memorial Day!!!

I love Memorial Day.  It means that summer is finally here!! Our neighborhood pool opens on the weekends Memorial Day and the amusement park by our house has it's official opening.  
My favorite thing in the summer is limoncello.  I picked up a bunch of organic lemons and some 100 proof vodka and I got peeling.
If you are new to the blog I had a lemon week a while back where I shared a limoncello recipe and lemonade recipe.  When I made the limoncello I used a zester to get the zest off the lemon. I had a ton of straining to do.  This time I used my veggie peeler and we'll see how much straining I have in about 20 days :)
The zest strips look so pretty floating in the vodka. I am so excited about summer and I can't wait to enjoy my linoncello on the patio.

Here is a quick funny story about our weekend.
PB and I got passes to the amusement park this summer. We went Friday night it was raining a little bit so we sat under a tent.  The rain stopped and the sun came out so we went on another ride.  As soon as we were locked in, it started to downpour while it was sunny.  The young girl working the ride said, "have fun!" and started the ride even though it was POURING! There was nothing we could do except ride and get wet.  We were soaked to the bone by the time the ride was done.  It was still pouring so we slowly walked back to the car and stomped in every puddle on the way. A few people invited us to stand under things with them but at that point we were so wet we couldn't get any wetter.  PB laughed hysterically all the way to the car he giggled with every puddle stomp and everyone was laughing at how happy he was.  It was a memorable moment for sure. I took this pic when we got to the car.  PB was so wet I peeled his clothes off of him to put him in the car seat.  Confession, I drove home with no pants on :) One thing I am glad a packed in my wallet was a ziplock bag.  So my phone was safe in that bag while we got wet.
I hope all you Americans enjoyed your long weekend.  A special shout out to all my former students who are now serving our country.  I am so proud of all of you and thank you so much for your service!!
