stay in a motel in Mesquite since
Grandma's house was bursting
with company already :)

for these cousins..like playing with fire!

for some black friday shopping,

water to take!

|Black friday lasted from 8pm-10:30 pm!|
We decided it was the perfect time to spend.
A couple of hours and lots of laughing and being
part of the silly crazy crowd.
|After the crowds disappeard...|
Joelie found a casualty...one woman down!
|There was actually one fight inside|
of Walmart that night. The cops
were there and took care of it.
A lady told me that last year there
were 3 fights.Crazy shoppers!!
|Saying goodnight to eachother in the parking lot|
|The cousins that didn't come along for black|
friday shopping, stayed at Grandma's and played cards,
then a cousin sleepover there.
|The next day, we drove out to the "Valley of Fire"|
|This spot is called "Elephant Rock"|
The kids had a blast climbing all around and on top of it !
|We spent a long time just climbing and having fun|
|Trey and Rylund|
|After playing at the Valley of Fire, a bunch|
of us went to the movie in Mesquite.
|And and bunch of the others went shooting |
(see video below)
|Uncle Mike helping Trey.|
Trey thought this was the COOLEST thing
ever!!! He is asking for a gun for christmas now.
The guys had lots of fun shooting!!
|A cousin sleep-over was spontaneously |
scheduled again at Grandma's house
|The next morning, we packed up from |
the motel in Mesquite and played at the
archade for a bit before leaving.
|Pretty soon, everyone else arrived and we |
all drove up to St. George for a yummy lunch together
before driving home.
It was so good to have been all together for thanksgiving
this year and we have such good memories to last us!
