July 28th National Water Park Day

It’s the middle of summer and the days are getting hotter and hotter. You’ve used your pool every day and it’s getting a little boring so… get the family in the car and drive to your closest water park and enjoy the waves, rides and people! That is unless you are like me and end up in the hospital because of the chemicals used to keep the water sanitary because of all those people and the deceases they can spread. I went to a water park once and ended up with the worst case of hives I have ever had, I ended up having to have an IV and topical medicine to get rid of them. So, enjoy, won’t see you there but as I am frequently told this sort of thing never ever has happened to anybody else! The day was created in 2017 by Kalahari Resorts and and Conventions.

How to celebrate – Go to a water park. If you have choices, compare what they have to offer. Float away the day on a lazy river.

June 25th Log Cabin Day

The log cabin was once a primary home for the expansion of the United States. It was easy to build, (Relatively) cheap, and could be build quickly. Presidents Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and James Garfield were all born in log cabins. I suppose if it was good enough for them, it’s good enough for us. However, the log cabin of old is not exactly what it is today. Today was created by Virginia Handy for the Log Cabin Society, Bad Axe Historical, in Michigan, on June 25th 1986.

How to celebrate – Build your own log cabin. Spend a vacation going from one log cabin area to the next comparing them. Buy some Lincoln Logs.
