Las Vegas and Carson's #7

After our fun time in Disneyland, we made a stop in Vegas! 

It is nice having family there and having a reason to stop.  Friday was spent having a bbq, going to the park, and having a movie/game night.  The kids love seeing their cousins!

Saturday, the 24th, we celebrated Carson's birthday.  We knew that we would be spending much of his actual birthday (the next day) driving home, so we did some fun things the day before.

We went down to The Strip, which I must say, is always an interesting experience!  We went to The World of Coca Cola.  It has changed from the last time I was there. Which was actually some time ago.  But you can still try different flavors of Coke products from all around the world.  Carson had fun taste testing!  There were some pretty nasty flavors!

Later that evening, we went to Chuck-E-Cheese for dinner.  Carson had a fun time, as did the rest of the kids.  That place was absolutely NUTS!  But it seemed to be a good choice for a birthday celebration.

It is always fun to celebrate something special with people we don't get to see too often.  This was no exception!  We were glad we could share Carson's birthday with Uncle Jim and his family!

 Presents!  Carson got some new clothes and some toys (and a trip to Disneyland :) ).  For weeks he has been asking for a jump rope and so that is one thing he got.  He loves it!  And he is pretty darn good at it!

Notice the cake?  Emily only had numbers 6 and 1 candles.  So we got creative and added a plus sign in between the two!  I thought it was clever. : )

Happy Birthday to Carson!  He is such a good kid!  He loves to play any sport and he loves to play with his friends.  He loves to try new things and he is a fast learner.  He makes his mom and dad very proud!  Love you Cars!

What a wonderful celebration. My kids would have had a great time just taste testing the coke. Fun! Happy birthday Carson!
