Knotts Berry Farm

Saterday was an amazingly fun day with Josh and his parents at Knotts. His mom is an RN and her hospital paid for workers and their families to get free for the day. Josh and I felt adventurous and tried to go on as many roller coasters as we could, while his parents watched.haha. but the four of us did go on the river rapids and log ride mulitple times throughout the day. maybe its a combination of constantly walking, the sun beating down heavily, and standing in line all day, but i always come back from theme parks exhausted. o yeah. and speaking of 'standing in line all day'..we really didn't. the park was pretty empty most of the day. we practically walked onto all the rides until around 3 then the lines started picking up. i think people were waiting to come for Knotts Scary Farm, which would explain why there wasn't many people. but hey! im not complaining.

"My Special"

(Nevaeh) "Hey Rachel?..I really like you!"..

(Me)"well, thanks! what makes you say that?"

(Nevaeh) "'cuz your 'My Special'!"

Those precious words may have been a product of her excitement after I let her drink apple juice in a "coffee mug" pretending to drink coffee like me..but never the less, she made my night. As always.

Good Travels ... Good Eats

ok, so we didn't travel anywhere but Josh and I did decide to go up the coast a few hours to Santa Monica today! there was no parking near the beach so we parked one of the neighborhoods basically and just walked around looking at the houses. we walked along this trail that was basically a mix of Back Bay and how it would be if you walked around the houses at balboa island. does that make sence? anyways, it was really cool, and we had way too much fun looking at ridiculous houses that neither of us will EVER be able to afford. one house even had a "carousel horse" propped in front of the window! crazy, i know! let me just say, that i would definitly not mind living in Santa Monica..or any of those centralish beach cities. 8) Thanks for such an enjoyable and adventure filled day Josh!

Tonight, Nina and I hung out (which usually entails some necessary shopping for food and was no exception. always fun) but first we went to this whole in the wall Philly Cheese Steak place which is super yummy.

Funny faces from both of us. haha. i was in the middle of chewing and Nevaeh was pretending not to be in the mood for pictures.

I almost forgot the most exciting part of our evening! as we were walking up to the stairs of their apartment Nina found this HUGE (not even kidding) spider making this crazy web at least 3 feet wide...maybe 2 feet. idk. but it was big. and gross.
