Well, today is the unofficial beginning of summer!  It's also Memorial Day, a U.S. federal holiday to pay respect to America's servicemen and women whom died while preserving our freedoms. While families are gathering for the annual kick-off to summer barbeque, I truly hope everyone sets aside a few moments to remember and also to educate our children on the importance of this special day. So as the saying goes "Freedom is not free".... everyone from Zoey's Attic sends our thanks to all past and present service members and their families for defending our personal freedoms. Enjoy your summer!

Everyone Loves A Tractor!

Oh so many years ago, when I was a kiddo myself, my family spent many Spring and Summer weekends at our cousin's clubhouse on the Meramec River in Eureka, MO. The house had a large wrap around screened in porch and it was lined with one cot after another where all of the kid cousins slept. We, also, did not have indoor plumbing at the "country" home, and it was somewhat frightening using the outhouse during the darkness of the night. By day we would picnic on the sandbar, swim and float the river. In the evenings we would barbeque and then eat the homemade ice cream we had made earlier in the day. The clubhouse was bordered on three sides by farm land. The cornfields were especially fun for playing hide and seek as they provided many avenues for hiding! Soybeans and wheat were planted in the adjacent fields. Everyone loved riding on the combines and tractors when the fields were plowed or the crops were being harvested. I really miss the innocence of these childhood days and love to reflect on the many happy memories of days gone by spent at the clubhouse on the farm. How fun would it be to have a tractor themed birthday party at the old clubhouse? Zoey's Attic can help! Any tractor themed design can be made on an adult size shirt and wouldn't the kiddos just love a tractor party too? Zoey's also has tractor themed shirts for other occasions such as pregnancy announcements or Valentines Day, and you can even custom design a shirt for any special event. So excited for my tractor themed party!
