Magic Mountian/Twilight

First I wanna say that I'm glad I'm able to post again. We have been without a computer for a few weeks, but Santa brought us a new one a little early and now we are up and running.

Well... I can't believe it actually happened. To tell you the truth i don't think the reality has sunk in yet. The Joyce family has moved to Missouri, but before they left we were able to spend one last weekend with them.

It started off at Six Flags Magic Mountain. I grew up going to the six flags in Georgia and I have always loved rollar coasters so when David and Sarah invited us to go I was pretty excited. For the first couple of rides I was doing ok, but after the Tatsu I got so dizzy I thought I was going to pass out. That has NEVER happened to me before. I felt terrible, but I had to sit out for a couple of rides. When I felt somewhat normal again I decided I would try another one and see how I react. So we went on the Colossus. (Side note: apparently kevin's dad helped do some of the welding for this track) When I made it through that just fine I determined that it had to be the pressure from the other rides going upside down that messed me up. I still don't know what was officially my problem, but I haven't had any other episodes since.

The next day we went to see the movie Twilight. I had gotten Sarah into the series as well so we knew we had to go see it together. Like I said in my previous post about the books...I don't read many books before watching the movie and I was pretty excited/nervous to see how it was going to turn out. I think overall it turned out well. If you go and see the movie without reading the books there is a lot of stuff that you won't catch. They did a good job at keeping it true to the book. Just remember that it is geared towards teenagers. :)

Then there we were in the movie theater parking lot saying goodbye until who knows when to our good friends. We took one more picture together to capture the moment.

We love you guys. Good luck in Missouri. Come back soon!

We went to Six Flags (in Louisville) a couple of months ago and everyone got sick-feeling really quickly! We're freaking old, Heather, that's the problem. It was a devastating day.
