Family Fun day at Cedar Point!!!!



Kids on a ride...Hands up!!!

Sleepy Baby!!

Sleepy HUSBAND.....MEN!!!

Visit with Snoopy!!

The Family and Grandma too!!
Yesterday was perfect...perfect weather, not crowded and well behaved kids :) and not too much bitching from the husband..Ha!!! We left our house around 10:30a.m. and headed to Cedar Point (a yearly trip for us) about a hour away...Cedar Point is known for one of the famous amusement parks in the world....it has some of the fastest, highest coasters around, it really is an unbelievable fun park!!! This year was so much fun as Skylar and Konor are big enough to ride some of the bigger coasters....so we would leave the two little ones in Snoopy land with Grandma, then Todd and I and Skylar and Konor would head off to hit some of the bigger rides...we were skipping around like little kids...I am a roller coaster queen I can handle all of them...some of the smaller spiny kiddie rides do make me a little ill, but I am all ready for the BIG rides....I love to mess with Todd on the hill climbs as he has a little fear of heights and he death gripes the bar and looks scared :) so I on the other hand will get loud and try to peal his hands off...pisses him off, BUT fun for me:) The kids were real troopers and a SMILE never left their faces...
We ended up staying until 9:30p.m. so really a long day on the feet....with a lot of junk food in the tummies and tons of bruises and pulled muscles from the rides (Man, I know I am getting OLD when I can feel EVERY jerk and pull on the rides and say OUCH:) ALL worth the smile on the kids faces :0)
Off for a brick and I am SURE I will feel the tired legs and all the amusement park food rolling around in the belly:)

No way dude!! I used to work there before moving to Hawaii in 94!
Cedar Point is truly a fun place and even more fun place to work at!! Just a side note: all those summer college kids are probably hung over!! Even the ride operators! haha! oh the stories I could tell about CP!! Goodtimes!!

Nice family picture!! They should use you guys for CP marketing and promo videos!!

Hey Mel! Sounds like you guys had a blast! Growing up we also did Cedar Point and King's Island every summer, such great memories. My bro worked at CP as a college kid for three summers, and just like Dolphin Boy said....the stories I heard...

Hope your brick went well!

I love Cedar Point- and we almost went there instead of the Keys this past weekend.
My sister was in an accident on a roller coaster there way back in the 80's...
Great place!
