Universal Studios, or The Theme Park Photo Timeline

Our excursion on Monday was to Universal Studios. Little did we know, everyone else in the world had the same teacher in-service day off. Normally the lines are pretty short there (that's why I like it) but not this time. We had a good time, anyway.

We rode the new Simpsons ride for the first time. It is way cool. Don't click on this YouTube video if you don't want to see what happens. I warned you!

Going to Universal has become a family tradition that Frank and I started with our first trip in February 1998. (Short hair on both of us!)

Ernest first joined us in 2001.

We even got the HH to come along in 2007.

This year, we invited nephew McQueen.

Look at how fast those boys grow up. Ernest is significantly taller than me now. Sniff.

How fun.

I'm 4 inches shorter than the next-tallest person in my family. Sigh.
