From my mother, who Owen calls Frammaw:
I did it! I really did it! I got into my car Wednesday morning at 8:15, keyed the address in my GPS, filled my car up with gas, ($4.06 in Shelby), placed my shaking, sweaty hands on the steering wheel and started out to find Campingpalooza.
I arrived without mishap and spent the best day of my summer watching the Speelman clan do their thing! I was intruduced to Lily the frog and a small mouse who not yet been named. I had lunch with Owen and Melissa (the big boys were much to busy building a home for Lily), and saw every flag between the campground and the quaint little ice cream parlor where Owen dined on a peanut butter and pickle hamburger.
What a day! I loved it!
