Diane and Kendal are up from South Carolina for a few weeks. I [Erika] was able to see them a couple weekends ago. My family has an annual kickball game [apparently... heh. This was the first I had ever heard of it]. So we went to that. And played 0 kickball. But it was nice seeing that side of the family. I hadn't seen any of them in a long time.
On the way home, Diane asked Kendal and I what we wanted to do the next time we hung out. Kendal said, "How 'bout go to Cedar Point?" expecting to get shot down. But much to our surprise, Diane said, "Ok. How about tomorrow?"
Well, to truncate this story, that's what Kendal and I did. We went to Cedar Point the very next day, and it was grand. I hadn't been since 10th grade. I had never even been on the Millennium Force. But we did it! And the Millennium is now my favorite. Followed immediately by the Maverick. Also GREAT.
The thing that freaked me out the most was the Power Tower. Heh. We went on the one that takes you up slow and then drops you. We started out and were probably about 15 feet in the air, and I already felt really high. Not a good sign when you still have about 225 feet to go. We started going up. And up. And up and up and up and up. When you finally get to the top of the darn thing, they hold you up there for about 15 agonizing seconds before they drop you. Oooiiy. But needless to say, I went on the Power Tower and lived to tell the tale. And I'm glad I did it. It was fun. :)
I think the thing that freaked Kendal out the most was the monorail thingy. Heh. She was concerned that the cables would snap. Hence her face in this picture, I think:
Then the next day, we went strawberry picking. And got about 20 pounds of straberries. It was fun. And I love strawberries, so it's good that we got so many. We're just all-stars when it comes to picking strawberries, really.
Ok. Peace out.
PS - Yay for Steve Yzerman getting into the Hall of Fame! :)
