The family enjoyed a great week at Sooner Youth Camp on Lake Murray in Ardmore, OK. Mary was a camper at SYC for 7 years and has been on staff now for 8 years. I started going with her in 2002. This was Joel's first year (2nd if you count the womb)! Joel was a big hit with the staff and campers alike. Our friend, Sammy, quickly became a chick magnet with Joel in his arms. Each night the campers provide their own entertainment in "Social Hour". Joel was well-represented in many of the skits.
Here is a picture of Joel and his mommy. No shorts at SYC (j/k - that was the old days).
Here is Joel with his friend Diana. Diana was one of Mary's counselors when she was a camper. We are good friends with Diana and her family.
The view from my bunk. The fan is a must have as there is no A/C and the temperatures in mid-July can be ridiculous!
