So quite a bit has happened since my last update!  Lets see if I can remember everything!

Dan and I went to Alton Towers at the end of May for a friend’s birthday.  Alton Towers is a huge theme park about 4 hours away.  It was an early morning, waking up at 4 am and arriving at the park around 9:30, but it was an amazing day!  I was a bit terrified when I agreed to go because the last time I was on a roller coaster was when I was 14 riding the Wild Thing at Valley Fair, which proved to be enough roller coasters for me for the next 12 years.  And Dan had never been on a roller coaster at all!  Despite the crazy weather (we were rained on the majority of the day, hailed/thunder stormed a bit of the day, with a few minutes of beautiful sunshine in between), it was so much fun and can’t wait to go to another theme park now.

The beginning of June also had a few hot and sunny days of which we took full advantage.

And something else that is exciting, 18 days until Dan and I fly to Minnesota!!!

    Hi Mandy & Dan,
    We are anxiously awaiting your arrival – it seems so long since we saw you! The bass are
    biting at the lake. Bob and kids were up for a few days and they had a good time fishing. John
    also caught some sunnies that he brought over to show us. The weather is FINALLY acting
    like the season it is. See you soon. Our Love!
