This weekend is the perfect time to kick off the summer right with friends and family! Karena’s dad is in town visiting from Indiana and we all are planning to spend the weekend enjoying the beach, hiking, biking and of course BBQ’n!
Not only is May 28th Memorial Day, it also happens to be National Burger Day. In honor of the day, we made a fun video with Livestrong Woman and share two of our favorite burger recipes below.
