40th Anniversary Dinner                Teaching Ginger to drive! New place in Louisville

Started driving the trailer back to KY on March 22, 2011
Since we arrived in Louisville on March 28th, we have had LOTS of rain!  April was the wettest April on record, with over 14".  That sounds bad, but most of the rain occurs at night, and more than half of the days have been great.  In April, we traveled to visit Steve & Aimee in Maryland, and bought a pontoon.

Same route as
last June
 
The ONLY pics I took on the way
 
The dogs are cowards!
 
Record rainfall in April...14+"
...the reason it's so green!
 
Ginger and I drove out to Taylorsville Lake on 5-5-2011 (where we intend to
launch the pontoon)...it's flooded 46' over "summer pool" levels.  No boating for awhile, but I'm sure there will be plenty of photos later.

Newport Beach / Knott's Berry Farm March 3-11, 2011
We spent 3 1/2 months in California, and back to Louisviille as of March 27, 2011.  Here are some of the events that took place while in California: 

One of the really fun things we did was share a week at a nice bay-front home in Newport Beach with Rob & Ashleah and Nathan, Samantha, & Owen.  Several times, Phillip & Melanie came over, as well as Jessica (Ashleah's twin sister) and her husband, Joel.  Great time!
Our home for the week The whole gang

Night Views from the deck
           Cruising Newport Bay around Balboa and Lido Islands
Now, THESE are expensive homes! After the cruise Last night - Joe's Crab Shack
One of the days, Rob and I took Nathan to Knott's Berry Farm...had a great time in a largely deserted park- Lot's of smiles!
It's nice at the park when it's almost as if the park is open just for you!  Absolutely no waiting in line...
in many cases, just stay seated for another ride without even getting off! 

It had been years since I'd visited this park...it's grow up a little, and has some really good rides!
