Cedar Point! :D (Pictures)

Ferris Wheel
Cedar Point 2006!!

It had been a LONG time since I’d gone on a Saturday, so I sat out a lot more rides than I normally would have because I didn’t want to wait in a lot of long lines. The longest I waited for a ride was nearly an hour for the Wicked Twister. But that one is worth it. It was the first ride of the day, and even though I’d ridden it before, I was a nervous wreck as I got closer to the loading area! I knew I just needed to “break the seal,” and once I did, I was fine. Well, until I got on Millennium Force, for which I waited 90 minutes for (so that was the longest wait, not the WT!)

I didn’t get a chance to ride Top Thrill Dragster this time, but that’s okay. Next time. :)

The most fun I had, though, was at night, when we were waiting for some friends to get on the Sky Hawk. The Sky Hawk is basically a GIGANTIC, hydraulic swing. It goes WAY up in the air. It was a LOT of fun to watch. Well, every time it’d start going up, those of us on the ground would start acting very ghetto, snapping our fingers and going “no, uh uh! Hell no!” I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. Then, a bunch of us hopped onto the Mine Ride. The Mine Ride is a small, dinky little coaster. There was no line for it, and we got right on. Since the particular train was adults-only, we decided to bring out the ghetto act again. The first thing I did was scream, very loudly: OH MY GOD as we were going over the first hill. But the first hill is a very tiny and slow drop, so we were yelling out “oh, HELL NO!” HAHA. Hands up the whole time on that ride–you get jerked around a lot if you do. Great fun.

The coolest part is when we came back through, there was no one waiting in line for the seat I was in, so the lady let some of us go again!! There was a kid in front of me this time, so I watched the language, but it was still a lot of fun.

I rode:

  1. Wicked Twister
  2. Gemini
  3. Millennium Force
  4. Troika
  5. Matterhorn
  6. Iron Dragon
  7. Scrambler
  8. Mine Ride (twice)
  9. Wave Swinger

I think that’s it. I wasn’t into waiting in line so much, and I kept Caty company as she’d decided to sit out a lot of the bigger coasters. Plus, I was working on my tan, on which I think I made great progress:

It's Me!  :)
Yay!

I’m posting this picture simply because I like it:

And for the piece de resistance, a photo of Craig and me on Millennium Force!!!!

Whew. I am tired. Could sleep all day, but gotta go get Aidan soon. ‘Til next time…

Summer Days (Pictures)

It's Me!

I spent most of my day floating in a pool, sunning myself, and letting the cool 82 degree Fahrenheit water wash over my legs and arms. It was bliss.

My being on the floating thing is a huge deal because I don’t know how to swim, and eleven years ago I nearly drowned in a pool, and for a long time the smell of chlorine made me freak out when I got near a pool. Today was my first time actually trusting the floaty thingy to keep me safe, and it was good.

Floating!

It’s also a good thing that Aidan is braver than I would have been at his age (maybe):

Mr. Aidan Man

Craig’s parents were out of town, and so we headed up and took advantage of their pool and grill. Not the hot tub this time–it was WAY too hot for that. Although, Aidan did ask if we could all get in. There was no way, though!!!

The perfect way to spend a 95 degree day:
– Wake up late (but not too late)
– Play on the computer (and chat with certain favorite persons)
– Float in a pool all day
– Eat hamburgers from the grill, and baked beans
– Read while letting the Sun dry me off (before getting back into the pool to cool off again)
– Finish the day with a chocolate ice cream soda. Mmmmm.

A couple of funnies:

Pothead
Check out my son, the pothead.

One of the dogs got into the leftover meat and helped herself to four hotdogs and a steak. Pretty funny stuff. Probably wouldn’t have been as funny if I were still hungry. Ha.

Anyway, I’m tired. Got a lot to do this week. Much of which I will probably forget. ‘Til next time….
