For the past 3 summers we've had the tradition of flying back to MI for the Fourth of July and getting a cabin with almost all the Tighes for a week in the U.P. We've got a fantastic place on a small lake in the Hiawatha National Forest that sleeps all ~30 of us, and it's just great to see everyone playing and together each summer. Here are some pics of this year's adventure.

Dommy and Paddy in the same wagon Daddy grew up with, then playing in the sprinkler with cousin Ella:

The fireworks show in Escanaba (over Lake MI) was fantastic as usual!:
