Bryan's tombstone. We (or Jessie and Matt) placed this in the graveyard of the Haunted Mansion. We had to smuggle it into the park. Bryan died on January 10, 2009. This trip was only a month after that

Danny and I after the Portland Half Marathon on September 6th. It doesn't look like it, but we ran through some pretty heavy rain during the race
