kemah boardwalk

but first a little background info, trent and i have been living just outside of houston, in a little town called friendswood (cute huh). trent is doing a rotation at one of the big hospital's here, memorial hermann, and loves it by the way. i am working at a dental office and somehow i got lucky enough to work with some of the funnest people i have ever met. the dentist actually has a son that lives in park city and is there as we speak. not fair. we have tried to plan something fun to do every saturday while we are here. so far so good. one weekend we went over to the kemah boardwalk. can i just tell you how much fun it was. the atmosphere was amazing. the rides rocked. and the food was fabulous. we both got a pass that you can ride unlimited all day long. so worth it. we probably rode for 4 hours straight. and i mean there were no lines so we were actually on the rides for 4 straight hours. we had a blast and plan to go back next weekend for the mardi gras boat parade they put on every year. totally recommend the boardwalk if you ever make it over to houston.


the boardwalk bullet. seriously one of THE funnest roller coasters i have EVER been on.
it was right on the coast, almost touching the water. amazing.


didn't make it on the farris wheel. although if you saw the 'little couple' they went on it and it didn't look as fun as the boardwalk bullet. duh.

my face after about the 24th time on the drop zone. seriously. scariest ride ever. think of the ride on top of the stratosphere (same concept here, minus being on top of the stratosphere) and imagine it 100 times more scary. i LOVE the big shot and thought this was pretty weak. not so. you literally think you are going to die since it feels like it will never stop falling while you plumit into the earth. the last time i felt like i was going to die by bringing it on myself was in disney world at blizzard beach on the water slide that is completely vertical and usually results in a huge wedgie and your top coming off. i think i came off the slide and my life flashed before my eyes. i would totally do it again too. anyways..trent thought it was hysterical that as much as i tried not too i peed myself and screamed every single time. totally recommend it.

here is the culprit himself below



a view from the drop zone. before the plumit that is...



loved loved loved the boardwalk.
we still have 6 more weeks here and that leaves 6 more saturdays to fill,
so if you have been to houston and did anything fun let me know!!!

Wish we were on the boardwalk with you!! Although I would skip that plummeting to the earth ride. I think my heart would give out if I tried. I'm quite jealous of all the fun you're having!

That all looks so fun!!! I probably WOULD have peed my pants on that drop zone one. Cool.
