Rollercoaster Joy

We got to the park around 10:30 this morning right about the time it opened. I thought I was smart by using sun screen today, but I missed the area on my chest just below my neck so it is pretty red right now. It was a wonderful day of riding rides. One of the kids wasn't sure if he liked rollercoasters so we started slow with a basic mine train coaster. He liked it pretty well so we took it up a large notch and rode Superman (a floorless coaster) after that. By then he was hooked. We rode all the coasters in the park including a new one I have never ridden which brings my number up to 126 I think. We stayed until 4:15 and then we had to leave in order to get to Austin and check into our hotel. I did get a souvenir - a Marvin the Martian laser gun that I didn't have. It was a fun, but exhausting day. I did get to ride my two favorite coasters twice.

We checked into the hotel around 6:00 and then headed to dinner at 6:30. We ate at I-Hop which was just around the corner. I had the chicken fajita salad which was o.k. but not amazing. (And Andrew - at Cheddars I had the lemon pepper chicken with corn and rice.) When we got back to the hotel I took a nice long shower and now it's about time for bed. We have an early morning tomorrow and a very long day. Tomorrow evening I may get to meet a friend from high school for dinner.

Well, I have some blogs to read before going to bed... I don't know if I'll get through all of them yet, but hopefully soon.

Sounds like so much fun!!! I wish I liked roller coasters. The kid and Josh love them, but they aren't for me.

A good day! I would not enter a rollercoaster even if you would pay me real money for it, but it is a good thing to see you enjoy it! You mentioned the martian Marvin before, I have to look for that guy. I only know Marvin from the Hitchhiker's Guide. Hope you have another good day coming!

I know nobody got more joy out of yesterday than you! I was so glad you and the crew got to go to a theme park. Hope you're not too sunburned and enjoy your meal tonight!
