Everyday I get a chuckle when I pass this mobile home park called Shangri-La. Ben and I always say it in funny ways to each other when ever we pass it. It's definitely the little things that crack us up.

And of all people, Cameron, our 10-year-old nephew, told us what Shangri-La really means:

According to Wikipedia it is "a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. In the book, "Shangri-La" is a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise but particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia—a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel Lost Horizon, the people who live at Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan."

:chuckle, chuckle:

No offense if you live in a mobile home park, but why would anyone name one Shangri-La...permanent happy land! Teehee!
