Sorry, it's been awhile

I realize that it has been since June that I updated. Sorry about that. To be honest, I just haven't had the brain power to sit down and write. It was just hard to concentrate. Not to mention, if I tried , Teya would bug me until I went and played with her. Anyway, we had two great trips this summer to visit our families. July was with Todd's family in Ocean City, MD and August was with mine in MI. We had wonderful weather during both trips and had a wonderful time with family.

During our visit we went to Cedar Point. We had a blast. Teya rode her first roller coaster The Woodstock Express and my niece Kaelynn who is 8 rode a big one for the first time, for those of you that know - The Gemini. I hadn't been there since Teya was born, so about 6 years. I am a roller coaster addict, so it was great to get back.

Teya and Kristina on the Frog Hopper - hands up everyone!

I rode the Top Thrill Dragster for the first time and let me just say aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!The ride goes from 0 to over 120 miles per hour in four seconds in order to go straight up the 420 foot tower, up and over the top and straight down the other side. There is no over the shoulder harness and only a lap belt/bar. The ride is exhilarating and only lasts 22 seconds. If you love roller coasters and have never been to Cedar Point, your missing out. You can check out their website for info and videos of their coasters. It gave me chills again to watch the one for Top Thrill Dragster. Can't wait to go back!

The Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster is the craziest looking ride I have ever seen! :-)
