Since we've moved a few times we've learned a few things along the way. 1. I love every place I go a little better than the last!. 2. Our kids feel the most comfortable in a house with their own stuff. 3. We love to explore new places once we arrive. We call this being tourists in our own town and it has been so fun and exciting so we keep on doing it!
We decided to take the kids to Lake Las Vegas this past weekend! We went on Saturday afternoon after naps and along with beautiful views and new things to explore there was a Mardi Gras festival going on! It was alive and happening with booths, live music and lots of kids activities. Although we made the ultimate parent fail by not bringing any cash so the kids couldn't do any of the activities thankfully they did not seem to care one bit and after explaining it to them they were happy to feed the ducks and watch instead!
Yes, we live in the desert but we have a 360 degree view of mountains and it's gorgeous!
We saw a turtle crossing the road.. literally crossing the road. I think I would have died if we ran him over. Not sure what he would have done once he got to the curb so Brett decided to help him.
But not before he showed the kids!
Cute little dude!

Lake Las Vegas is very pretty. The actual lake is pretty gross but the hotels on it and the roads are gorgeous with big palm trees and fountains!
They call Lake Las Vegas, "A little slice of Tuscany" and it's totally accurate thanks to the buildings and the bridge!
Fun decorations at the festival.
Any fountain or water fall and these kids are obsessed

Such a fun outing to explore more of Henderson! So far we are loving the weather, the adventure, meeting new people and exploring a new place!
