Landon's First Trip with Grandpa and Grandma

We were so lucky to have the opportunity for the first time to take Landon down to Las Vegas with us for a whole week. Grandpa took him for a trip around the RV park in the stroller, he must have enjoyed it alot...he came back all tuckered out and asleep. He went shopping with me and my friend Deb looking for Nascar merchandise, flirted with our other camping buddies and Deb's friends that visited for awhile. Mom, Dad and Shauna flew in Friday morning which he was greeted by lots of smiles and kisses. He loved going to the race Saturday, which eventually he slept through most of the race. Sunday was so bright and sunny that he was already to cheer on his driver for a win that day. Through the whole week he was so good and was such a happy guy. We came home with alot of cherished memories of Landon's first racing camping trip with family and friends.

Getting There is Always An Adventure

When I picture camping in Las Vegas I picture a blue sky with the warm sun beating down on our white pail skin and no snow in site. We'll I guess I can dream can't I????? We'll we left Wednesday morning with our little bud in his car seat in the back sit of our truck pulling our fifthwheel trailer, all packed for

a week of pure enjoyment. When we pulled out of the driveway it looked like it was going to come in and snow any moment, it didn't take to long and we ran into it outside of Stockton. The further south we went the worse it got, we were probably 15 miles from Cove Fort when the wind really started blowing hard...hard enough that the blocked wood in the back of the truck was blowing out....Scott didn't dare pull over he had a death grip on the steering wheel that probably is permanent to this day...anyways...we finally found an area that we could pull over and arranged the wood differently. By the time we got to Beaver we had less than 1/4 of a tank of gas left( we've always gassed up in Cedar City before) we refilled, let Landon play for a bit, got us something to eat and regroup ourselves to plunge ahead. The wind was blowing so hard that it was blowing the truck and trailer across the road, we finally ran out of the storm when we hit Hurricane. We arrived in Las Vegas in one piece, no harm thankfully, just alittle fraziled with a truck and trailer that looked like a dirty snowpacked popcycle but was looking forward to a great fun packed week at one of our favorite events of the year.
