What, it’s Sunday night again?  Where did the weekend go?  Oh yeah, I remember – lots of fun things happening this past weekend.  My official weekend starts on Friday, so we took the kids to Cedar Point amusement park.  Have you ever been there?  I spent my childhood going there and it never gets old.  I am happy to report that my kids love roller coasters as much as I do.  Well, maybe I love them just a little more, but they are almost there.  We actually got to the park when it opened, which was a super rare occasion for us.

Even though there were a lot of kids there (middle school/high school groups), the wait times were not bad and we didn’t wait more than 40 mins to get on everything.  Most were only a 15 min wait.  Here is a new ride from last year that I really love.  It’s like riding on a big twirling skateboard!

We saw an Extreme show where they were performing stunts and doing jumps on BMX bikes, inline skates, and even a Razor scooter.  Crazy, impressive, stunts!

We loved the petting zoo where they had a baby pig, baby goats, bunnies and these cute little animals that I have never seen before!

For lunch we brought along some Subway, but we also had these swiss rolls.  Chocolate cake and Reese’s peanut butter filling??  OMG, they were the best!

We usually shut Cedar Point down, but we had a big day ahead of us on Saturday so we left around 8pm.  It’s a long drive home, so I didn’t mind leaving early.    Alan had his new Fenix watch on so he mapped us during the whole day.  It’s a lot of walking!

I’ve officially signed up for the Erie Marathon, so training is well under way now.  I’ve been so busy catching up on little things lately that I can’t even tell you how many miles I’ve run this past week.  I do have the following runs coming up:

  • Mon – 6 miles (also 3 with the running club after work weather allowing)
  • Tues – 8 miles hills
  • Weds – Rest!
  • Thurs – 5 miles
  • Fri – 16 miles with 10 miles at marathon pace (just hope it’s not so humid, or this will be miserable!)
  • Sat – REST! 🙂
  • Sun –  5 miles
  • = total 40 miles

Have a great start to your week everyone!

Q: Amusement park = roller coasters, spinning rides, or “no thanks I’ll just watch the shows”?

Q: Swiss rolls or Twinkies?

    1. I’m glad the kids didn’t want to go on the Tilt A Whirl. I think I would have sat that one out!

  1. Looks like a fun day was had!!!! I used to LOVE roller coasters!!! Would still go on them if I hadn’t under gone neck surgery…. I miss riding them!

    Hate to admit it, but I would choose Twinkies… man, those are so bad for you! But taste so good! 😀

    1. Oh yes, neck surgery would definitely put an end to riding coasters. When I first got pregnant I asked the Dr if it was OK to go to Cedar Point. She gave me an “are you insane?” look. haha!

  2. awe sounds like a SUPER fun weekend.! 🙂 that place looks great for the kids.!
    I’m more of a “watch the show person” even baby roller coasters are a bit too much for me. ha
    and those swiss rolls look amazinggg.! I love peanut butter and chocolate combinations. and normal swiss rolls. basically anything unhealthy. lol
