We joined our friend Brent and his family for their first cruise. We departed Galveston for Progreso, Mexico and Cozumel Mexico on a 5 day cruise.
It was a blast. We had a great time. October is a great time to cruise.
We went to Las Vegas with Daryl, Jen, Mike, and Joyce this time. What a great time.
We went to see the Kansas City Chiefs play this Sunday, Oct 31st. It was a blast! Lots of people dressed up and enjoying themselves. We were in the nosebleed section, but still could see and hear and really had a good time.
Jeffrey, his friend Matt, and I all went for a weekend at the lake. Penny joined us Sunday afternoon.
We did lots of fishing, swimming and bike riding. We had a great time. Matt had the biggest fish. He caught 2(ea) 10lb catfish. Jeff and I also caught some, not quite that big.
We haven’t been here before. This was a new experience. We went camping at Council Grove Lake just north of Council Grove Kansas. This was a great campground, with concrete sites and coverd picnic tables. Electricity and water, and right on the lake. We went with our friends, Daryl and Jen and their family. Penny and I were kidless this time. Jeff didn’t want to go.
We did it again. This time with 3 other couples. All 8 of us went to sunny warm Mexico and had a great time. I uploaded all my pictures, way too many. They are here Cruise Pictures. I condensed it down to a few in the rest of this story. Video playlist is here.
Clayton and Jeff visited Mom and Dad in August. We had a truly wonderful time! We saw a Cardinals game in the new stadium. We went fishing at Creve Coeur Lake, and even caught some fish. Clayton did an upgrade to Mom’s computer as well. We spend several days visiting and playing cards too. All in all, a great visit. Thank you Mom and Dad!
We spent a week in the Ozarks with Gayle and Darlene, and had a great time. We started at Tom and Louis’ Mother’s house in Garfield, AK. on Beaver Lake. She has a nice house and dock and a boat as well. We camped in her front yard with Gayle and Darlene. We did some chores for her while we were there, later got some boating and swimming in. We stayed two nights and had great cool weather while there. Video at the end of post.
Here we go again. It seems like we always go to Afton. Oh well. At least it’s camping.
This time Gayle and Darlene came out, and used their camper. Gayle’s friends Daryl and Jen also came out and camped in their hybrid travel trailer. We had a great time, and caught some fish. We did some swimming and enjoyed ourselves as usual.
We went on a great cruise this year. This time we went with another couple, Gayle and Darlene Mullin. No kids this time. We drove to Galveston and cruised on the Voyager of the Seas. We saw the ports of Cozumel, Roatan, and Costa Maya. The weather was great the whole time. Nobody got sunburned although Penny and Gayle got a few insect bites.
We got the camper out again. Back to Lake Afton again. Clayton and
Jeffrey towed the trailer out Friday after work/school and set it all
up. Penny joined us later that night after work.
The band heads to Dighton, Kansas to headline the Dightons Backyard Bash. Penny and Jeffrey go as well and camp at the fairgrounds in Dighton. It is a 4 1/2 hour drive to Dighton from Wichita. We all meet out there for some barbeque, car show, and live music from 5 bands.
We went to Lake Afton again. This time Clayton’s band, Shagdaddy had a gig at a wedding reception. The reception was in a pavilion at Lake Afton. Louis, our lead singer is a friend of the groom. We camped at a site within a hundred yards or so away from the pavilion. Clayton went to play the gig from 6 to 9 on Saturday, but that didn’t cut into our camping fun too much!
