Weekly updates from BLDG 25

time to get goin’

memorial day weekend will always carry with it a sense of freedom and memories of that long weekend when i’d get out early from school and head to the shore with family and friends for beach, barbecues and SUN – the first taste of the languid summer days ahead. it has always been the beach for me, but there are tons of other getaways that would be wonderful this weekend…

camping under the stars…


a lake hidden by trees, preferably with a rope to swing out on…



wherever this is, i want to go there.


a weekend boating excursion would be amazing!



road trip…


…or bike trip!


crash at a friend’s house with a pool :)


and if you can’t go anywhere at all, build yourself a blanket fort :)

what’s everyone doing this weekend?
