Rollercoaster Love

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.

Oh and that cardigan was useless - somebody tell California it's January 20th.
 
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.
85 mph. 26 story drop. Behold the beauty of Goliath:

 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.

FUN!!! I LOVE rollercoasters. When Steven and I were engaged we were living in Florida and bought season passes to Busch Gardens. So many happy memories on those rides!

I think I've said this before, but I am so jealous of your hair! So long and healthy and those curls! :)

I'm such a wuss when it comes to roller coasters. I've been to Magic Mountain and I spent the whole day working up to Batman. I wish I had the stomach for the ones you went on!

P. s. I love your new layout. I keep forgetting to put that in my comments.
