Thanksgiving in Los Angeles
Stopped on Wednesday (November 25) to see long time friends in LA (Bob and Nancy), their daughter (Gina) and her new baby, Danielle (age 8 months).
From there we settled in at our daughter's place for Thanksgiving where we had everything normally served on Thanksgiving. She made a delicious turkey and we all ate more than we should have eaten.
Jerry and Sue carving the turkey.

Grandkids: Ivan, Christian, Samantha, Natalie and Erin
Said our "good byes" (we'll see them again at Christmas) and drove to Las Vegas today. It was a pleasure driving on a newly paved three lane highway with little traffic in our direction. But, the traffic out of Las Vegas to LA was bumper-to-bumper (going mostly 35 miles per hour or stopped) as far out as 50-60 miles from Las Vegas. Guess everyone had the same idea: get back to LA on Saturday to beat the traffic on Sunday.
The clouds were beautiful though it rained for a portion of the trip.
There was even snow on the mountains out of LA.
We are at our usual RV park in Las Vegas, Sam's Town - voted the best RV park in Las Vegas.
It is 56 degrees out right now and raining slightly. We will be here a week, with our friends (John and Marijean) joining us with their RV on Monday.
