Fun Weekend!

I'm back- Phew! What a weekend! What a blast at Cedar Point! My newest SIL invited my DD and I to join her for FREE at Honda Day at Cedar Point. She and my BIL work there but "the boys" (our DH's and my son and FIL) were all at a trapping convention so they were doing "their thing"! Anyway, we had so much fun! For the first several hours we took the 3 younger cousins to the smaller rides (they are 6, 7 & 8) while the teenagers went off on their own. Then we met up and left them all to hang out while my SIL and I ran off like teenagers to ride the big girl rides!

OH MY GOODNESS! I hadn't ridden a coaster for TEN years and was concerned that maybe I'd gotten too old to hang with the big dogs... well, let me tell you, we HUNG with the big dogs! We didn't have much time to ourselves so we did whatever was closest at the time, starting with the Corkscrew. An oldie but a goodie. Next, we did the unthinkable- the Dragster! We were so nervous while in line, I thought my sister-in-law would back out! But we did it, 125 miles per hour I believe, and it was over in mere seconds! You go from a standstill to 125 mph in 4 seconds I think- what a gut wrencher! Then it's straight up, literally, and straight back down again (I think they said 20 stories high!). YIKES! It was such a rush. Anyone who's been there knows just what I'm saying.

Next we did the Millenium Force which was even better, if that's possible and ended with the Mantis (a big disappointment after the other two). I only wish we had time for the Raptor and the Maverick and all the others. I told her next time we're leaving the kids at home with a babysitter. LOL! So much fun, and I'm so glad I haven't outgrown those coasters yet!

Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures but they are either blurry or just plain horrible (imagine a 6 year old taken a picture of the adults from her level... let's just say double chin shots that would never get published!). I will post this one of my DD since it is cute, and I have her permission. :) No we didn't win this gigantic shark, some young guy offered it because he didn't want to carry it. The kiddos fought over who got it and the adults fought over who HAD to take it. I WON! ;)

Tomorrow I will post a picture of a card and maybe the scrapbook pages I did on Saturday (although, I'll have to admit I'm better at cardmaking) but tonight the light just isn't working for me.

Thanks for stopping by!
