Houston National Veteran's Cemetery

We graciously took one sacred flag to post. One flag that has served with honor on a soldier's casket during internment.
With reverance and honor, it was carefully raised to fly over the cemetary.
We were humbled by the honor that we performed.
All gave some, Some gave All.

Knott's Berry Farm

Silver Bullet

Silver Bullet, Knott’s first suspended coaster, sends riders climbing to a height of 146 feet and soaring back down an initial drop of 109 feet. Riders will spiral, corkscrew, fly into a cobra roll, and experience overbanked curves. Overall, riders will find themselves upside down six times including one vertical loop of 105 feet.

This scream machine puts you head-over-heels six times in less than 1 minute! Just when you think it's safe to breathe, it gives it to you all over again -- BACKWARDS!

Train Trip to Los Angeles for fun!

Explored the LA Union Station with water fountains and a really accurate sun dial.
We walked across to the Plaza and down Olvera Street past the Avila Adobe, the Pelanconi Houseand the Sepulveda House

Avila Adobe (#145), in Los Angeles, oldest existing house in Los Angeles, built circa 1818 by the mayor of the pueblo

As a tourist attraction, Olvera Street is a living museum paying homage to a romantic vision of old Mexico. The exterior facades of the brick buildings enclosing Olvera Street and on the small vendor stands lining its center are colorful piñatas, hanging puppets in white peasant garb, Mexican pottery, serapes, mounted bull horns, oversized sombreros, and a life-size stuffed donkey. Olvera Street attracts almost two million visitors per year.
