Speed World at Jolly Roger, Maryland

After  a couple of days of Ocean adventure, hubby and I knew that the kids  need something to do rather than    exploring the ocean.  So we took them at the nearby amusement park, Jolly Roger.  With 50 years of family fun, they sure have so many things to do that the whole family would enjoy.  Our last day was spent at Speedworld where you can  immerse yourselves in the world of racing! As soon as you step into the  Grand Entrance building, you can immediately transport yourself into a world of speed and excitement.
The attraction at Speedworld includes  Gran Prix, Family Lemans, Stockart, Figure 8, Family, Slide 4-5,  Kiddie,  Power Wheels, Kiddie Gran Prix, Super Raceway,  and Formula One.  We only did  four or five of them until our time was up.  Every card has two hours.  
 I wasn't really planning to  ride but some of it requires a parent and since my son is riding with my husband, I had to ride with  our daughter hehehe.
 It's a great bonding for  the boys.  My husband  taught our son how to  drive the car safely without bumping to others car or  drivong off to the  race way.
 Miss Independent is fearless.  I am glad that she is not like me who is scared of driving lol.  But then again, it could be sary  that she doesn't have that fear.
 I like it when I am not riding because I get to take pictures of them.

Of these two,  Rylie is more courageous when it comes to speed.  EJ is  so reserved and doesn't have that confidence yet.
 We encouraged him to drive alone on this one though.  At first he did not want to but  since  his sister was enthusiastic in  driving, he was  encouraged to try.
 He did not like it that he is a bit short and could not fully see.
 The only downside on that day was the weather.  IT was so hot that  we were sweating and we bought so many cups of lemonade from the concession stand inside the speedworl.  Other than that, we had so much fun! Shadow Shots

How Common Are Car Accident Lawsuits?

The commonality of car accident lawsuits often depends on how many vehicles are on the road in a specific state. Areas that don’t have very good mass transit systems and are large metropolitan areas increase the risk of car accidents, which increases the risk of car accident lawsuits. If you consult a car accident lawyer about your case, they’ll probably inform you that many claims end in settlements before a lawsuit can even be filed.

Advantages of Settling Before Filing a Lawsuit

Before you even think about filing a lawsuit for your car accident, strongly consider settling instead. By settling, you’ll receive your compensation much faster, you won’t have to pay as much in attorney fees, the final decision won’t be up to a jury, and you won’t have to worry about showing up for several legal proceedings. Something else to think about while you’re consulting with car accident lawyers is that if you do file a lawsuit and go to trial you run the risk of not receiving any kind of compensation whatsoever if you lose the trial.

When to File a Lawsuit

While it’s more beneficial for you to settle out of court, you may have no choice but to proceed with filing a lawsuit. This is often the case when an insurance company simply refuses to offer you a fair settlement to compensate you for your injuries, lost wages, pain, and suffering. Your lawyer will need to write up an official legal complaint and file it with the court before making sure that the defendant receives the complaint. Once that’s done, both parties will gather evidence to build their case, which may include bringing in witnesses to testify. The final step of the actual lawsuit will be to go before a judge and jury to decide the outcome of the case.

Even if you decide to file a lawsuit you can still settle as long as a final verdict hasn’t been reached. Speak with a knowledgeable car accident attorney today to explore your best option.

Lemans Speedway at Jolly Roger, Maryland

 The Lemans Family Track was my favorite because it was  fast and we all got to ride.  Daughter and I had the chance to race with  hubby and son.  As competitive as our daughter is, she was telling me "Faster Mom, faster!" I was like "This is the fastest I could get, lol"
What I love about it though is that, the view from the racing track is awesome.  You could see the ocean view from there which is really nice.  
 My son and I  watched  John and Rylie raced at one of the fastest rides in there.  
 You can see how our daughter was  so happy after the race.
 Hubby took  our son for a spin since he did not want to drive by himself anymore.
 I just watched them and took pictures, it was my job after all, to capture the  precious moments.
Our last day ended with a blast.  The kids were all pumped although the heat of the sun drained their energy, it was a great day for all of us.  The great thing about it all is that, even though we did not  have any exercise that week, hubby and I  were still  fit because we did so much walking in Ocean City.

Finding our Way through the Rain

Last Saturday was our daughter's first performance  in Duquesne University for the music program she's taking.  The tunnel going to Pittsburgh was closed that day so we had to drive  all the way to McKee's Rock to go to Pittsburgh.  We left early because we did not want to be late.  It was raining as well so it wasn't  the prettiest day to go somewhere but we were all excited.  
 Rylie was  nervous but I wasn't, which surprised me because I am always nervous when she have to perform lol.
 Ej and I used to not go when she has to take her classes there on Saturday but since it was her first performance there, we did not want to miss it. Besides, hubby doesn't like taking pictures lol.
 While waiting, we took our time to take  pictures.

 Looking at the photos here, I came to realized, my kids are almost my size!  Time do fly by so fast!
 The tunnel going back to Weirton was open so it  was easy  coming back home than going there.
I can tell that our daughter was a bit stressed out that week but glad that it's over and that she did well on her performance.  If you haven't seen the video yet, you may check on it at my Music blog.  Thanks for visiting!


It's been..
