Forty: Everest

This is a picture of four of my favorite people on my absolute FAVORITE roller coaster in Disney World. Mount Everest. Of course, this year I was pregnant so I obeyed all most of the rules and avoided the rides.

But come on! They have warnings on like every ride and by the end, I had reasoned that Blake could probably power through It's A Small World and the Peter Pan ride. I mean, just ask the kids, I have had a more jarring ride on the way to work in the past.

Anyway, I find this picture HI-LARIOUS because of the following:

1) Who knew Jeff still raised his hands (in the air like he just doesn't care) when riding roller coasters? Obviously, to show off!

2) Hayden looks terrified. And for good reason. Poor thing doesn't know that you don't HAVE to ride a ride just because you are tall enough (or almost tall enough, in many cases)*. We sort of tricked him into that.

3) And then Mimi and GrandDad. What great sports they are to go along and act like they are not scared.

*The only exception to this was Tower of Terror. We let him sit that one out. He says he will ride it "when he turns 13."

How cute! I've seen Hayden's expression on Jeff a few times when Jeff was that age. It's amazing how much they look alike. But he never turned down a ride, he always rode them all.

What about the fifth guy in the back? Not also a favorite?
