Memorial Day is one of the most relaxed U.S. holidays, usually resulting in quiet family days, small barbecues and the first outdoor activities of the spring. That is as true for celebrities as it is for us, and in 2019 many of them showed off their wholesome holiday plans.
There were strange celebrity pairings together for days out this weekend, and there were insular star families cozying up in their homes. There were also old friends getting together, including former co-stars that fans were delighted to see back on their screens.
For most of the U.S., it was the perfect conditions for a long weekend. The weather was beautiful, and more than a few stars got out their swim trunks or their bikinis for the first time this year.
Here's a look at how your favorite stars spent Memorial Day weekend 2019.

"Sorry for the triple post, just so excited to get this new album cover art from @prattprattpratt Now all we need are songs and a band name," he wrote. "We will both be going off the grind for a while to figure it all out. Stand by..."
