For Kissgiving this year we started a new tradition of exchanging names with each other and then hit the Dollar Tree to buy some small thing for the name we drew! As a big present this year our whole family got a little Chihuahua puppy. He is a cutie-pie whom we named Sherman (after the General Sherman Tree at Sequoia). Enjoy our pics and Happy Kissgiving day!!
Natural surroundings - 6 - Camp is next to a river bed with smaller trees on sites. You are next to a highway and lots if businesses, but it has a secluded feel to it.

For all you McDonalds haters it is my proud duty to tell you we have hit another of the golden arches in another state, the golden state of California! Since the accident we have been stuck in Bakersfield, CA for a week. After a morning of traipsing around signing documents, meeting adjusters and collecting our old van's possessions, it seemed like perfect timing to add another notch on our Ronald McDonald belt.

When in Vegas one has to indulge a bit, so our family indulged in chocolate. We visited a chocolate factory we saw on the Duggars. I must say they had a better time and more personalized tour than we did!

When you travel to Nevada, going to a local McDonalds is probably not high on your list of things to do, unless of course you are trying to visit one in every state of this glorious union of ours! We visited a McDonalds in Henderson, Nevada for some ice cream cones and sundaes and a little wifi!
They had a decent sized playland, but that is not what we will remember most about our stop here. It seems Blake had a run-in with a toilet paper dispenser and it fell off and cut him a bit. We thought we should tell management so they would know their bathroom was not currently operating at full tilt. This led to filling out of accident forms and the discussion of possible free fries for life. OK – I am just joking about the free fries part.
Blake has survived the incident with no visible scars, gangrene or childhood obesity, for which we are very thankful!
You might see a few things you didn’t count on though. Like huge billboards of things you might feel you could have gone one living without seeing. All in all despite the faux world wonders and the explicit signage, for our family Las Vegas proved to be largely and brightly lit yawn. There was not much we found there that drew us to stay. We had a hard time even finding a cheap buffet, so we headed to Fazolis where kids eat free on weekends. Now that was something to cheer about!
We did have a nice time at the Church of South Las Vegas. We must have went to an extension campus because it was in Henderson, Nevada! Anyway they had a pretty good children's ministry and a great sermon. Our kids are getting used to just going into every church without a fuss, talking to the teachers like they were old friends!
