It is a Speelman tradition to go to Put-in-Bay each year during Campingpalooza.  The rain almost foiled the tradition this year, but we opted to go on the 4th of July (which we try to avoid due to the crowds).  I’m SO glad we decided to make the trip.  The crowds weren’t too bad at all.  It was a GORGEOUS day too.  After riding the ferry over to the island we always head directly to Frosty’s for cold beer and pizza (minus the beer for me this year).  Then we herd the kids across the street to the playground.  We usually go to the monument, but this year it just didn’t happen.  Max, Jack, Isaac and Truitt kept asking me to take their picture in various locations.  Jack remembered photos I’ve taken past years and wanted to re-create them- I thought that was so sweet.  They absolutely LOVE hanging out together.  July 5th is Nicci and Brian’s anniversary- and they were married right here on the island too!  These are some of the best memories for all the Speelman clan.
