A look back at 2017


Another great year for the Campbell clan. We pretty much stick to the same routine every year. We live in VT but spend the Spring in our RV traveling around the country and our Summers are spent in NY on Lake Ontario. 

Some highlights from 2017 are checking out a couple National Parks on our road trip, I started a new job with Pau Hana Surf Supply and we have a new niece named Stella who was born in May. 

I could go on and on but instead here's some of my favorite photos from 2017. If you click on the photo you can do a slide show. Check out the quick video at the end.
