No more playing around with 65 degree days followed by inches of rain. Nope. See ya later spring!
We kicked things into high gear for America's 238th birthday with 78 degrees, sun and with a slight breeze and celebrated on one of the best islands I can think of that's driving distance from Cleveland - Put-in--freaking-Bay.
The rules of how you do Put-In-Bay.
Start off with some very colorful and inappropriate friends and family then pile 21 of them into a house. (Also, allow your friends to crash the weekend (that's me!))
|The more props the better - penis aprons, temporary tattoos and lobster rafts are great additions.|
Wear touristy outfits complete with bedazzled visors and island branded gear.
|That visor though.....|
|these strawberry margaritas are serious business|
Do get a fabulous spot to watch the fireworks.
Snap photos galore. After all, we are making memories here people! And, every group needs a motto for the weekend because that's what you JUST do. Ours was a very popular tune by the one and only Rihanna and it was "Bitch better have my money." Fitting, am I right?
And as our group repeated over and over, "if you can't have fun, get off the island!"
