Cedar Point Day

One of the best days of the year is Cedar Point day. The annual all-day trek of the Andersons all over the best amusement park in the world. We got there at 9:30 am and left at 9:24 pm. A full day to be sure! We go for the roller coasters and rode 8 of them, some more than once. Every year we try to ride a new coaster and this year was Raptor which is a hanging coaster that has loops and twists. Very intense and cool, smooth and unpredictable. It is an incredible ride! Callie was scared to death to get on and then rode it almost the whole way with her eyes closed, but she said she'd go on again. Our favorites in the park are the Magnum, which was our first ride of the day and the Mean Streak which we rode twice.

The day was a tad bit too warm and the sun was a smidgen too bright, but we stood tough. Standing in line for the Raptor, which doesn't have shade tents or misters was the longest part of the day. I'm a little sunburned, and I'm sure it's from that particular wait. After that we took it easy on the train ride followed by the Paddleboat ride.

We have found out if you want a really good picture of E, you have to put him on a rollercoaster. Most people look insane in those pictures, hair flying, faces twisted in a scream. But E he looks great, like he is having the time of his life! We are really going to have to buy one someday!

Aaaahhhh! The joys of a coaster! One of the bad parts of moving around like we do is that no one ever knows what Cedar Point is. (actually, in IN they knew and we got to see commercials on tv for it, that was way cool) In Alabama and here in Crapville, oops, I mean Wisconsin, they think 6 flags is all that. :P on them!

Yahoo for America's Roller Coast!

Holy Cow! The last time I was at Cedar Point, I was *2* people: I was about 8 wks. pregnant with Jared. It's been awhile, in other words.
