This last Saturday was spent at Magic Mountain! We got season passes for Christmas (seriously, we lucked out) and had to activate them by the 27th, so we stopped by for a few hours to do that and catch a couple rides. It was a beautiful, not-too-crowded day and I'll even go so far as to say it was my favorite post-marriage date.
Matthew and I have a very different approach to rollercoasters. I like to start by riding the most intense ride in the park first...while he works his way up for a grand finale (and favors sissy rides, if you're asking me...). To please him, we warmed up with the boat ride...you know, the kid ride that just swings back and forth...which I thought was just ridiculous. Dang near embarrassing! But here we are on the boat ride:
Fortunately, my pick was next.

After that I didn't care what we went on. Just spent the rest of the time having a great day with my favorite person, at my favorite place.
