After getting his new contact lenses today, Jeffrey gave one of his best perfomances at the Haysville Middle School’s fall band concert. We are all very proud of him.

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.
Gayle and Darlene invited us to Darlene’s birthday party with family and friends at their house. Penny and I checked it out and had a great time. They sure have a lot of kids and grandkids. We had a little rain but it turned out great anyway.
Gayle and Darlene invite us to spend the weekend at El Dorado State Park for a crew party with Gayle’s work friends. We took the trailer and Gayle and Darlene stayed with us. Lots of people showed up Saturday for the party. We went boating, tubing, swimming, fishing, and just plain visiting. We got to meet some really neat people and had a great time.
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!
Clayton and Penny spend the weekend at Lake Afton with Gayle and Darlene. We all stay in the pop-up trailer and Gayle and Darlend did most of the cooking. Even thought the weather was cold and windy on Saturday, we all really enjoyed relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. Besides, Sunday the weather was beautiful! We celebrated Penny’s birthday as well.Penny decided a while back that this was how she wanted to spend her birthday, and she got her wish.
We took the camper to the Brown’s mom and stepdad’s house at Beaver Lake and set up in the neighbor’s driveway. We had a great time swimming, boating, tubeing and visiting. We went on a journey about 20 minutes in the boat to see some fireworks on the 4th. Shot some BBguns and spent some time relaxing. Of cource the kids set off some fireworks of their own and nobody got hurt. A complete success!
This time to Lake Afton. We had fabulous weather and had a great time. Jeff and Clayton went swimming and bike riding. They rode all the way around the lake!
We are getting used to the new camper now. Penny took it with Jeffrey Friday afternoon and got it set up. Clayton joined them after work that afternoon. She and Jeff did a great job of setting it up.
We got run out early Sunday (9:00) as there was a huge group of square dancers that reserved the west side and north side of the lake for a whole week. We left at exactly 9:00 a.m. Right on time.
We took the camper out again. This time to Cheney Lake. A state park about 45 min west. We have decided we are no longer going to camp when the wind is howling. This could have been a great weekend but was not because of major continous winds in excess of 35mph from Friday late night on through the entire weekend. I am so sick of wind! We still had fun swimming and hanging out, and on!
Clayton and Penny travel to Las Vegas again. This time we tried to explore new things. We visited Sams Town this time. A really cool place with waterfalls and woodlands inside the center.

Clayton takes a trip to Norman, Ok. to help transport Dave Johnson’s airplane to Wichita. Dave bought this airplane from a guy in Norman and has been waiting for the right weekend to round up his buddies and break it down and bring it back on a trailer. We all piched in and helped him out.
