Postcards from the Future



The spaceship earth ride allowed you to send "postcards from the future" to yourself right after the ride ended. So here they are: Amy & I, Kelly & Steve Markkanen.

Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth is a cool ride in the big "golf ball" thing at Epcot. At the end of the ride, they produce a fun cartoon featuring the people in the ride. I was able to get my video camera out for part of it featuring Amy and I. Enjoy! video

Disneyworld pix





Just some random pictures from the trip. Kelly and I got to see a short, but free, concert of Boyz II Men at Epcot....all 3 of us won free "Year of a Million Dreams" Mickey Mouse Ears after riding the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom....then Markkanen joined us at Epcot and we all tried to imitate the gargoyle in the France section of the park.

Aerosmith Rock'n'Roller Coaster

Best ride at Hollywood Studios. Kelly was a bit nervous, but Amy convinced her to give it a try. Then Amy proceeded to do a little dance while we were waiting in line...HILARIOUS! video

A Fantasmic Morning

A quick video of Amy's excitment... video

Another Animal Kingdom Video

Just a quick video of Amy making fun of me and Kelly desperate to get a picture with Flick from the movie "Ants". video

Animal Kingdom videos

My sisters and I went to Animal Kingdom our first day at Disney World. Amy made fun of me for videotaping as soon as we got into the park, but I was anxious to try out my camera. I took several videos, but there was a clear winner of the day: the fruitbats. The bats were amazing, but I must say - we got more of a show than we expected. Just watch and you'll understand. LOL! Besides the bats, we did the safari, the Dinosaur ride, watched "It's Tough to Be a Bug", and rode the Everest Expedition 3 times! Kelly was about to puke after the third time, so we quickly made our way back to the hotel. video

I turned 35!




For my 35th birthday last month, my roomies and I set up the house to have an art party. Everyone who came over had to make a piece of art for me. The rationale was that I would be moving into my house with lots of bare walls and they could help me decorate it. Well....I didn't end up buying the house (active termite infestation with lots of dry rot damage), but at least we had fun playing with crayons, colored pencils, paints, markers, and pastels.
