Clayton's 13!

Well, he made it. Clayton is now a teenager. He started celebrating on Thursday night. He had a couple of friends come over for pizza and a cookie cake. Here they are enjoying the pizza.On Friday we went back to the campground in Havana. We had agreed to go before we realized it was Clayton's birthday. There was a big group of people that went and someone else made the reservations. Clayton wasn't thrilled about spending his birthday at the campground but he managed to have a good time. Here he is lounging in the motorhome. It was the last picture of him as a 12 year old!
Here he is as a teenager. Doesn't he look older?

He had to open his presents as soon as he got out of bed.

He got an iPod, some accessories to go with it, some Qik N Ez gift cards, and some cold hard cash. I think he made out pretty good. That afternoon we had cake for him.

The campground had Halloween festivities and in the afternoon there was also a costume contest. No one in my family wanted to dress up so I hadn't planned to. On Friday me and Carl went to Wal-Mart and found a hilarious costume and, much to my disbelief, he agreed to wear it. I then had to find one and all I could find was a witch. Some people may say that is appropriate! Anyway, here we are.

Anybody need a plumber! His company was called "McKrackin Plumbing". Their motto is "We're number 1 when it comes to number 2". He actually ended up having a good time. He was strutting his stuff. He ended up being the only male grownup that dressed up so they put him in the category with the women. He got second place. But, he's first place in my book.
