Cedar Point

What a beautiful site! Blue skies, white puffy clouds, and some of the best roller coasters in the WORLD!!!! They have some beautiful landscaping throughout the park.
Here are some of the fun coasters we did throughout the day.
Here is my sister, Sarah, about to go on her very first roller coaster ever...Maverick! About 2:00 in the afternoon, we took a water break and watched the insane folks ride this:We decided we weren't crazy enough for that. So we walked around the corner and found these:
Sarah and her BFF, Megan, rode this...O.B. and I rode this...It goes way, way up
and then goes way, way down. Then you shoot through the loading area and do it backwards, repeat the forward and backward and forward again.

Whew...How about something a little more calm?

Nope, not the skyway. Although this ride does go 420 ft into the sky! Straight up into the wild, blue yonder!

At 120 mph!

Mere seconds after the ride of a lifetime! Sarah sure did conquer her fears that day. WTG lil' sis!!!!!!!

Celebrating the failure

at Cedar Point! Not really celebrating, but since I'm not preggo, I might as well get Corkscrewed , pray like a Mantis , get Wicked Twisted, fly like a Raptor, and be Millenium Forced. Heck, by the time I leave there, I might even be deemed a Maverick! I'm going to ride all 17 roller coasters! And then eat "fair" food. Then I might get on the Himalaya, or some other spinning, twirling, whirling ride. I figure since I should have been just starting the puking faze of my pregnancy, I ought to see what it would have felt like. So, now you know how I "put my big girl panties on and Deal with it!"

Oh yeah, Why am I going to Ohio anyway?? To visit family. I have both parents, 4 siblings, and multitudes of extended family living in the Cleveland 'burbs. My remaining sibling, a 22 year old sister, will be in town with her boyfriend from California. They will be flying in on 6/12 or early on 6/13. We'll be driving up on 6/12. And there are only a few that know about it...the Cali girl, my bro (I left him a message on his voice mail, I think!), and my almost 16 yo sis. You remember her, don't ya? It's Sarah!!! From last summer's posts.

I like secrets! I'm glad my parents aren't old enough or frail enough to have heart attacks.
