Ben's birthday always falls during our Conneaut Lake time. He requested a cookout by the lake (meaning on the site of his great-grandparents' Midway Hotel) this year, as he always does. We usually manage to have a number of cookouts each summer, but the weather hasn't cooperated this year. Fortunately, the rain held off just long enough for us to cook our hot dogs and sausages and to sing happy birthday.
