My recent travels


Daniel and I took a trip to Cedar Point (a big amusement park right on Lake Erie). This is a nice shot of me after riding the Top Thrill Dragster. It goes 120mph in 3 seconds. It knocks the winds out of you.


Later in the day it rained on us which shut down all the rides and caused a lot of people to leave early. We stuck it out and got to enjoy the rides without any long lines.


I got a little worn out after it rained because I was able to ride so many rides without having to wait in line. And I realized that its not always a bad thing to wait in line because it gives your stomach a chance to recover. So we took a cool down lap on the ferris wheel.


My first trip to Washington DC.


We were walking down the sidewalk and saw a bunch of people skateboarding in this plaza area and Daniel spots out one of his favorite pro skateboarders, Stevie Williams.

More fun times! I think my tolerance for amusement park rides started to decline after we got married. It seemed like I got sicker faster.

And probably because you were pregnant six times. There aren't that many rides available for expecting mothers.

Dan looks like he's got a serious man crush in that last picture.
