Spring Break!

Last week was spring break for me. As my family and JoRyan's family left for vacation to Gulf Shores and New York City, I felt like we needed to go on a little vacation ourselves since they so kindly left us behind. ;-) So we booked a hotel in Dallas right next door to Six Flags over Texas! This is a view of the park from our room
We left on Thursday afternoon to drive to Dallas. We got there around 7:30 and checked into our hotel and then went out to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. MMM! Their baked sweet potatoes and fresh rolls are my favorite! The next day we woke up around 6 AM because we were so anxious to get to the park... too bad for us, the park didn't even open until 10! So we had ourselves a lovely breakfast at the hotel and waited 2 more hours to leave.

This is us in front of "The Batman!" It's a really fun roller coaster where your feet dangle as the coaster hurls you through several loops and turns at VERY fast speeds.

Although we had to stand in lines for most of the day, we had a blast at Six Flags. What a great place to just go and have fun! We were completely wiped out by the end of the day.

This roller coaster is called "Mr. Freeze." It is one of my favorites as it shoots you through a tunnel through loops and straight up...then in goes backwards through the whole track again. Oh, and it goes from 0 to 70 in a matter of seconds. What a thrill!

My Superman! (:

JoRyan thinks I look like Supergirl for some odd reason.

Saturday morning we left the hotel and went to eat at IHOP becuase we didn't wake up in time for the free hotel breakfast. Oops! Then we were able to go to the Dallas temple and do a session. It was by far the best part of our trip. Even though it was about to snow in the picture!

Overall, we had a wonderful time on our mini-vacation, and I am so glad we got to go! Thank goodness JoRyan works at a hotel so we could get the discounted rate! Hooray for Spring Break!
