boardwalk and beach-reminds me of New Jersey!
Chase and Lincoln in front of the Batman ride (our second favorite roller coaster)
The Pantages theater where WICKED was playing was amazing!
What a wonderful and exhausting 2 days! We packed everything that we possibly could into our short time in L.A. but gosh was it a BLAST! Chase's meet was at UCLA so my mother and brother in law (Rhonda and Lincoln) flew to LA to watch his meet. We had SO much fun! The first day we went to Universal Studios, watched Chase throw, and then walked on the beach and the boardwalk at night. As far as the meet goes, it wasn't Chase's best. This weekend is a home meet at Utah State though and he usually does amazing here. The next day we got up really early and went to Six Flags! We only had a half day because we had to get Chase back with the team in time to catch his flight so we just ran from roller coaster to roller coaster! To be honest I was super nervous about all these crazy roller coasters. It seemed like every single one was "the highest, fastest, or most upside down" It was weird though because as soon as the ride actually started down the first big hill, I thoroughly enjoyed it and LOVED every minute of it. Then after waiting in line and anticipating what the next roller coaster would be like, I would panic again and get all nervous. It was weird. So here's my story. I LOVE roller coasters but I work myself up about them and get nervous right before they actually begin.
After we dropped Chase off we got tickets to go see WICKED. OH my gosh this musical was amazing! I had heard that it was good but I didn't know that it would be THIS good. I can't get the music out of my head, nor do I really want to. If you ever get the chance to see it, take it!
I feel so blessed to have married into such a wonderful family. I had so much fun with Lincoln and Rhonda. They spoil me to death and I love it! Thanks for yet another fun trip! Love you Taylors!!!
