The 3:30 am alarm came way too soon. We got our stuff packed up and headed to the airport for our Vegas adventure. No big problems getting on the plane and taking off. We landed in Vegas and 30 degrees. There was a bit of a chill when we got off the plane. We got the car and made our way to Pahrump. Tracie made homemade pizza for us. It was delicious. I love her pizza. After lunch we ventured off.
Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge
About 30 minutes away from Pahrump is the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. The place is huge. We walked a couple of the board walks and watched pup fish in the blue water. One of the park employees was wading in the water, trying to catch invasive fish. He said the water was really warm. Seems strange when it was chilly outside. It was an interesting time, we spend over 2 hours there. Here are some pictures:
Don’t Break the Ice…Ward style.
After the park we went back to Tracie’s house. Mike was doing target practice with the Nerf guns, cross bow and bow and arrow. They got this bright idea to shoot at the Don’t Break the Ice game. Chaos ensued. We all took a shot at it even my mom! It was fun. Video: Don't Break the Ice Ward Style
KFCTracie, Mike and Eric went out to get some KFC for dinner. Some of the kids wanted KFC and Eric is always up for KFC. We ate dinner and called it a night for us.
