Thanksgiving in Palm Springs

I was a little skeptical driving with two kidos to California, but Avery and Kade were little angels. Avery slept the whole way their and back, it was a dream come true. Kade he was in Curious George heaven. We bought him the movie, well worth the $15.00 spent at Wal-Mart!!

We drove to Las Vegas and stayed the night and went shopping the next day. If you have not seen a Cirqu De Sole show in Vegas it is a must see event. They are a little $$$ pricey but well worth the experience. I think I know why I don't live close to an Indian reservation, Las Vegas, or any place that has a legal Black Jack table. Time for a little confession I played Black Jack from 10:00 pm until 6:00 am. I think it is my new favorite sin to commit, as I said it is a good thing I don't live close to the border of Utah.

We had a great Thanksgiving in Palm Springs this year with the gorgeous weather. Mark and Sharee are always such wonderful hosts, their fridge is always stocked with drinks, ice cream, fruit, and it’s well stocked with goodies. Sharee and Tara made such a delicious Thanksgiving feast. We ate late as you can see because Mark and Dave's families came and meet us in Vegas to see the show " The O" so we got back and had to get things put together for our "Thatcher feast"

I guess this is hype about our Redneck family. I don't see it as redneck just a little Thatcher fun. We went up behind Mark's house and tried out his own personal arson, holy cow I didn't know that one man needed so many guns. We shot clay pigeons always a good time; Angie was surprisingly good at the whole shotgun thing. She was way to proud of her well earned bruises on her shoulder.

Rachel getting ready to take off on the motorcycle!!! This is one thing I absolutely love about Dave. He wants everyone to have such a good time. He spent 10 minutes helping Rachel get on all her gear. Rachel’s first time in the mountains on a motorcycle, she did

Kade shot his first 22, he thought it was the greates thing ever. Zoom in and check out his face so funny.

We went to SeaWorld with the Thatcher crew. Kade absoultley loved everything about it. He couldn't get enough of the dolphines. There was nobody their so we had the park to ourselves. We didn't have to wait in line once for the rides. Kade got to go an the Atlantis ride, he thought ti was really fun but when we were done I asked him if he wanted to go again and he said no.
