Life Is A Rollercoaster

One of my favorite movie quotes ever is from "Parenthood":

Grandma: You know, when I was nineteen, Grandpa took me on a roller coaster.
Gil: Oh?
Grandma: Up, down, up, down. Oh, what a ride!
Gil: What a great story.
Grandma: I always wanted to go again. You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn't like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it.

So true, Grandma! I used this quote for a layout of our family on a flume ride at Canobie Lake Park. I love all the expressions on our faces, all of us thrilled. Not every day is as thrilling, but that's OK.  Life is a ride and I like the roller coaster. :)


  1. Great layout and I love the story! Boring if life was like a merry-go-roung!! That is a great picture!!
