Spent the weekend at Cedar Point. Awesome birthday gift! Saturday night we road the wooden coasters. Blue Streak, Gemini, Mean Streak, Mine Ride and then we double dipped on the Millennium Force to end the night on a high note. Sunday, we were only going to be in the park for six hours, owing to prior commitments, so as a special birthday treat, we got Fast Lane passes. This allowed us to ride all 10 of the coasters we hadn’t yet hit (Dragster twice and Millennium Force again for good measure) and a few auxiliary rides as well: Power Tower up and down, SkyHawk, and WindSeeker. It was also the last day for Disaster Transport, so glad we got to ride it one more time. It was pretty awesome never waiting more than 30 minutes for a ride, and most of the time far less than that. I didn’t even spend too much money on junk food. We all had frozen custard on Saturday night – Wow, Delicious!  And then a hotdog and chips for lunch on Sunday. Water was about the only other thing we bought. And thanks to friends with season passes, the tickets were cheap too, and parking was free. Awesome weekend. Thank you!

Birthday gifts and cakes keep trickling in. Thank you everyone for that, too. It’s been a great celebration this year, and lasting longer than most. 🙂 I love it.  And soon to celebrate lots of other family birthdays!

So much coming up, trips, birthdays, conventions, our anniversary. I’m very excited, and working enough hours, we may even be able to afford most of it. 😉  Fingers crossed for gas prices around the third weekend of August.

After an exciting birthday week last week, not much to post about this week. Went to Cedar Point on Monday as a late birthday gift and post-bar celebration. It was a very busy Monday, even the 9am hour was busy, though even more so due to only one ride being open and it breaking at about 930. But we had a blast. It was warm and sunny, but Aquafina bottles were plentiful. As was salad for lunch and dinner. There was a bit of chocolate covered frozen banana and a bit too much cotton candy, but overall, I stayed fairly healthy.

Got to ride all the most of the coasters, with some decent, but not overwhelming waits for most. Maverick, Mean Streak, Mine Ride, Millennium, Magnum, Gemini, Disaster Transport, Corkscrew, Raptor, Wicked Twister, Top Thrill Dragster. Not many of the auxiliary rides this trip. We did Bumper Cars, Airhawk and Max Air. Rachel took the bullet and rode the Witch’s Wheel. Mostly we were running between coasters. We did take a break out to watch Everybody Loves Snoopy in the air conditioned skating rink theatre.

It was a good, exhausting day. With fireworks to keep us entertained in our final line.

Life itself marches on. Bills come in. Money goes out. Plans get made. And everything will work out fine. 🙂
