Memorial Day is certainly a day to remember those who have fought bravely for our country but it is also a time to be with the people who we love—our friends and family. It's a time for barbecues, relaxing on the beach, getting some of that much needed sleep, a party or two, a music show (or two), traveling to a new place for a few days, or traveling to a familiar place to see some familiar faces. I also think of the holiday as the first weekend where I can finally start getting used to warmer weather and the start of summer, without the fear that snow will hit the ground the very next day.

Over the long holiday weekend, the Colabination team did a little browsing on Instagram to find some shots that expressed the holiday in some unique or creative way. We chose a few of our favorites and compiled them into a roundup. We hope you enjoy:
