Picnics, barbecues and a whole lot of red, white and blue.

While Memorial Day serves as a day to remember and honor the great men and women who have given their lives serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, it's also commonly celebrated as the start of summer with grills heating up across the nation.

For this week's photo challenge, we want to see how Nesties are celebrating this holiday weekend. Share a photo with us! Are you taking a trip to the beach, playing a backyard game of bocce ball or honoring a loved one?

Submit your photos with a brief caption before Tuesday 5/29 by emailing us at, posting to our Facebook wall or tweeting @TheNest with the hashtag #NestPics (if you need more than one tweet for your caption, just send us another tweet). We'll feature some of our favorites in a slideshow on our blog!

How are you celebrating this Memorial Day?
