Wildwood

Memorial Day Weekend

Q: It’s Memorial Day Weekend and my kids suddenly have not a 3-day weekend, not a 4-day weekend, but actually a 5-day weekend because we didn’t use any snow days this winter! I’ve got no ideas and haven’t made any plans. Anything up your sleeve? ~ Thanks! Gretchen G.
