Spring Snowstorm

Posted March 28, 2009

Wow! We got 3 inches of sleet/freezing rain here in Wichita. Then we got about 6-8 inches of snow on top of that. All within a timespan of 24 hours. I was ready for spring, not this.

Here is a few pictures I snapped. The back porch pictures are the best as I actually stepped out the door for those.

This is the first post on my new website. I decided to have a site with my name in the URL. That way it is really easy to tell people I know to visit the site.
I will be putting interesting (I hope) tidbits and videos up here.

We’re Camping again!

Posted March 7, 2009

We had such nice weather this weekend, we couldn’t resist. We packed up the trailer and headed to Lake Afton. We took Jeffrey and Tyler and their bicycles. This was the first trip with the new truck and it worked great.

Steven and Chandler came to visit and got some fishin’ in. We had a lot of fun.

We went out on Friday and came back Saturday. The weather was getting very windy and they were forcasting storms so we came back Saturday. A short fun trip. Just what we needed for those winter blues.

Gayle had us over for Superbowl again. What a blast. Chris and Mikala came over also.

Check out the 3d glasses! There was a commercial for Monsters vs. Aliens, a new animated 3d movie. We were ready with our snazzy glasses.

New vehicles all the way around!

Posted January 23, 2009

Clayton and Penny get new cars. Wow we didn’t expect to do that.
We went to Lubbers in Cheney, Ks. last Saturday to ‘look’ around for something to replace the van with. Something small but not too low to the ground. We found this 2006 Ford Escape and really liked it. We made the deal on that and told me I should refinance my truck at a lower rate. I told them I was interested in trading it in. The rest is history.
We came home Saturday with two vehicles. I took the old truck to them on Monday and finished the deal. They are making great deals right now, is all I can say. Continue Reading

Cruise 2008!

Posted December 24, 2008

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.

Clayton hits a deer!

Posted November 25, 2008

I managed to hit one on the way to work Wednesday Nov 19th, 2008. I got lucky and smacked him (her) as he was crossing the road. I kept going and the airbags did not deploy. My only damage was the grill. One bulb was burned out as well. I hope that is the last time that happens. That was really scarey!
