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 and Penny get away for a nice relaxing weekend camping at Lake Afton. Jeffrey spent the weekend at a friends house and we got the weekend to ourselves. We took the bicycles this time and got a little exercise as well. It was a great time and we enjoyed ourselves.
Jeffrey had another band concert at the Middle school Tuesday. This was the last one for the year. He sounded great! Those six graders really have improved.

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.
We went camping again! This time to El Dorado lake, about 1 hour from our house up the turnpike. There wan’t too many people there as it is still early in the season. We had a great time with Jeffrey and his friend Tyler. The weather was beautiful but got extremely windy on Sunday. We were going to stay Sunday night but decided to get out of the wind and came home Sunday afternoon. One of the awning poles got damaged during the wind, but should be fixable without too much trouble.
Easter at the Van Campen’s was fun for all. The family got together for egg hunting and food and good times.
We went to Lake Afton in the new trailer and had a great time. We took Jeffrey and his two friends, Timmy and Devin. The weather was windy the first night and the next morning, but great after that. The trailer worked great.
Jeffrey had another concert Tuesday. This time we got to see the orchestra and the glee club.

We had Christmas at the Van Campen household a little late this year. Peggy had some heart bypass surgery over Christmas and is recovering nicely. We are all grateful to be able to celebrate Christmas this January. We all got together and feasted and opened presents.
This was the best cruise excursion I’ve ever been on. Open bar all the way to and back from Playa Mia.
We returned form our Carnival cruise on the Carnival Conquest today. What a great time we had! Everyone had so much fun we are finally resting. It is tough to have that much fun for 7 days in the warm sun. Not really. We did it!
