The first coaster we rode was Atlantis at Sea World. The kids said I looked EMO so they told Brian he had to buy it.
I'm the one with the jacket over my head that you can't see. Sorry these are so small. I probably should have fixed them when I scanned them in. Oh well. The next day we went to DISNEYLAND!!!!! "The happiest place on earth"? For most....YES! We went on Space Mountain and Splash Mountain.
Oh, I get it it's kind of like a game where you pick your poses for fun!! This one we decided to show NO emotion and act like this is boring. I think the workers rigged it because we all had ponchos on and we all got off soaked. I think they turned up the water just to spite us thinking we were all cool by not getting wet. After the ride, we did kind of look like this when our ploy to not get wet didn't work. No time to waste throwing a pitty party. On to more rides. I paid 15.00 for a service on the internet that you input all of the rides you want to ride and they spit out an itinerary for you that gives you the best options with not much waiting. It worked!! We rode everything we wanted and some twice. Saturday we went to Universal Studios where they had a photo special 4- 5x7's for 24.95. Great!! We'll do it so here are three of the four. The one at the beginning is one of them.
This is front of the Haunted House. It was real SPOOKY!
This is the ride "Revenge of the Mummy". It's one we hadn't been on before. Lots of Fun!
The photo above is on the "Jurassic Park" ride. It's a hard one to see because there are 2 shots on a 5x7. Our last day we went to California Adventures. One of the "cast" members dressed like a Bellhop approached Nick and Amanda and asked if they were alone and Amanda said her family (us) were with them. The Bellhop asked if we would like to take the dare. We said sure. So he told us to follow him and then proceded to tell us we were going to be the first family at California Adventure that day which meant we got to sign in the hotel (Tower of Terror) guest book and carry the big velvet rope with the people BEHIND us into the park. We would also be the first on the Tower of Terror ride in our own elevator and 2 fast passes to use whenever we wanted throughout the day on that ride. SCORE!!!!! Sarah and Amanda have pictures of that so you'll have to check their blogs and see if they post them.
Notice our family pose. It would be great in a 16x20 frame except for one problem....where's Kyle???? He had to stay home and work. Bummer!! We missed you! Maybe we can photoshop him in.

I thought it funny that Mitch would hang his first driving ticket on the fridge but figured it was one of three reasons.
1. He was proud of it?????
2. He wanted to keep the memory of it going strong?????
3. He had gone longer than any of his sisters without getting a ticket and wanted to proove it???
I figure it was so he wouldn't forget to call and get it paid in the timely manner. $82.00. Sorry about the ticket cute boy.
I think every fridge has a story!!!

We took Grandma and Alisha to Cedar City to spend the night with Kyle, Gina, and the girls. We ate dinner at the NINJA (like Benihana's). That was fun to visit a short bit with them. Then on to St. George.
The morning weather was beautiful in St. George - up to 60 degrees and not even much of a breeze. I start off doing great and then my feet went numb - oh man! I really had intended on getting a good time but was afraid I might twist an ankle or fall because I couldn't feel my feet SOOOoooo.....I slowed down. Big mistake! Well let's just say we finished --not last but not as good of a time as I had wanted. Sarah tried with all of her might to get me to get the lead out!!! She is so much fun to be with and I appreciate her "taking one for the team" and staying with me. I'm sure she could have finished AT LEAST 45 minutes sooner. Thank You Sarah for the fun! Looking forward to Ogden in May.
