Great America!!

Finally after lots of effort, I got all of my pictures in the right order! I need someone to tell me what the trick is to loading them, because I had to put the from the bottom to the top! So anyway, last Saturday, my dad was nice enough to take Lexus and I to the San Jose area for an over night trip. I must say I had a blast! It was nice to spend some time with just my dad and Lexus. We stayed at the embassy suites in Santa Clara I think! Saturday night we went to dinner at Bennigans then we went back to the hotel for time in the pool. Sunday we spent the day at Great America which was awesome!! I hadn't been there in almost 7 years, maybe longer. A huge thanks to Lexus for taking pictures. My dad has some too but I haven't gotten a copy of them yet.

We stayed in room 413, very nice hotel I must say! Amazing breakfast in the morning and the beds were comfy too :)

The view from our room, beautiful parking lot! lol

Lexus and I in the parking lot at Great of America! I have yet to figure out how to rotate pictures, but you get the idea!

Lexus was trying to make it appear as if I was holing the Star Tower in my hand but we couldn't get it right!

After waiting at the front gates for about 15 minutes, we finally got in and who did we see... SPONGE BOB! He and I have a thing going for each other, hopefully Eric wont mind lol!

My dad with my new boyfriend!

After hanging out with Sponge Bob, we headed over to ride Top Gun. It actually has a different name, but my whole life its been Top gun and it will always be that to me! We went on the ride 2 times and it was great!!

This picture is purely on here to show that I actually drooled all over myself while on Top Gun! Embarrassing I know, but I couldn't help myself.

Here's a picture of Lexus driving a little car. We couldn't have picked a better day to go, this ride had the longest wait time of all the rides!

This is Drop Zone! Its 22 stories tall and you fall at a rate of 62 miles per hour and it only takes 3 seconds! Talk about intense, it had a beautiful view from the time but when you finally fall you don't even have time to think!

This is my favorite picture of the day! We are waiting in line for the Sponge Bob 3D ride! Notice we are soaking wet. That was from the rafting ride that we went on before!

Lexus and I with the Fairly Odd Parents. They were much shorter in person than they look on TV.
There is a carousel that's 2 levels. We rode this at the end of the day!

Along with all these picture, we went on a lot of other rides but I have no pictures for those. I had so much fun spending time with my dad and Lexus. It hasn't changed a whole lot and it took me back to being a kid!
