camping in needles, ca

Do you ever get that feeling that you MUST GET AWAY! That's how I've been feeling. When you try to relax at home you can't help thinking of all the things you should be doing, pulling weeds, cleaning out closets etc. etc. So when you get away there is nothing between you and relax-aaaaaa-tion. We decided to go camping in very glamorous Needles, California. Why Needles? Because it's the closest KOA to Las Vegas that has camping cabins (cuz mama don't sleep in no tent!) No there's not much to do in Needles but that's o.k. we were there to relax and enjoy time together as a family. When we first got to town we took a little drive and I was very surprised to find out the Women's Club was having their Book Sale. When we camped in Needles last Fall (on a different date) they were having their twice yearly book sale. There's not much I like better than getting books at bargain prices and I wasn't disappointed (two books for a $1.00). As you can see from the pictures there was a train running through town. I don't think I'd like to live by a train station, but it is charming when you are on vacation to hear train sounds in the distance. Grant and Tom enjoyed the swings, Grant learned to jump off of the swings. I kept cringing waiting for him to break his wrist, but the good Lord looked after him and he was injury free. I will post more on our little family trip soon.....
