REELING IN A SUMMER CATCH
S ummer is just about in full swing for the Campbell family. Our youngest son, Carter, and I recently went deep-sea fishing. We found a spot off the Oregon Inlet in North Carolina and hauled in 145 pounds of tuna. We were with two other people, and we ended up taking about 40 pounds of tuna home. Let’s just say we had tuna all over the house for a while there. Carter absolutely loved getting out on the boat and bringing in the fish. It’s quickly become his latest passion. We had a lot of fun, and we’ll have a lot of fun as we spend the next two years eating our way through our catch. Connor, our oldest, is getting ready to head off to college. It’s a bittersweet time for Mom and Dad. On one hand, it’s our first step toward becoming empty nesters. On the other hand, we’re going to miss seeing his face every day. Codie, our daughter, was excited for the latest “Avengers” movie. She got her tickets early and made us watch each movie leading up to the big event. To give you just an idea of what we watched, we made our way through “Iron Man” (1, 2, and 3), the “Captain America” movies, “Thor,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Ant-Man,”
Speaking of special events, Kim recently celebrated her birthday. She wanted to spend time with family, so the kids and I set up a little surprise. I told Kim we were going out for a nice dinner, just the two of us. At the restaurant, the kids showed up and we got a table for five instead of two. I think it was a sweet surprise for a very deserving woman.
As for myself, lately I’ve been building a small wine cellar in our basement. My father taught me a lot about carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and drywall. Now I’m putting what he taught me to the test. I’ll admit it’s turned into a much bigger project that I had anticipated, but I’m having a lot of fun with it. It’s an excellent ongoing project for the weekend. I’ve even gotten the kids to help out, and it seems they have a real knack for it. As we get ready for summer, the Campbell family is simply busy. That tends to be the case almost always, but it is a good feeling to spend time with my family and to share some of what we are up to. As we grow older the need for family becomes even more important. I cherish the time I spend with them, and I hope for many more memories and adventures. With that, I hope everyone has a safe and happy summer, and we’ll talk soon. Kelly Campbell
and “Doctor Strange.” I think you see where I’m going with this. There are a lot of these Marvel movies! The Campbell family ate their way through a lot of popcorn and had plenty of late nights, but we were ready when “Avengers: Infinity War” came out in April.
