As you can see, Robb doesn't do any jogging!

Some of our riders lasted the entire two hours!!!

The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is a fantastic park! One of the few remaining seaside parks that has kept its "traditional" feel.

KidTums still doing her own version of the Giant Dipper!

Everything was closed to us except the dipper, had some kinda grad night going on. We got there saw the rides going and bum rushed the boardwalk, only to be turned away cause we didn't have the right wristband.

 

I think i drank somewhere between 10 and twelve beers. Food was awesome, weather was great, Robb kept flashing his butt crack. good times.

Avatar hotel has become one of TPR's favorite trip hotels ever!

The hotel has a quirky "Internet theme" to it...

We are here to ride the biggest, baddest coaster in Oakland!

Oakland Zoo has a really nice kiddie area that is a throwback to small traditional amusement parks.

And since the Oakland Zoo isn't just about coasters, let's check out some animals!

Warthogs. Why did it have to be warthogs!

The Oakland Zoo has an awesome sky ride for a birds eye view of many of the animals.
