Cedar Point

After our wonderful trip to see our families, Jeff had two more weeks of summer vacation. We were able to pack a lot into that time and did some amazing things. Cedar Point was one of them. If you haven't heard of Cedar Point you are missing out. It is one of the best amusement parks in the world and has roller coasters so tall that they will make you wet your pants. Well, in my case it was more like blacking out as all the blood left my head. Next time I'm going to see if I can get one of those suits that fighter pilots wear to keep them from passing out. Luckily we went on the worst one first (or best, depending on who you ask) so all the other rides felt like a walk in the park.

Over the last weekend of Jeff's break we visited Palmyra. We went to the Sacred Grove and the other church history sites in the area. It was pretty busy because of the Hill Cumorah Pageant, but still lots of fun!

The pageant was amazing! I couldn't believe how big the cast was.

We decided a little too late to take this trip so all the hotels were booked! Since we didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a room, we ended up in the only hotel we've ever known to use incense as an air freshener. Let's just say every piece of clothing we brought with us went right into the wash when we got home. I think next time I'll sleep in the car.

On our way home we stopped at Niagara Falls and rode the Maid of the Mist.

Talk about slacking on the blog. We have been pretty busy since the last post in April. Jeff survived his first year of medical school, we celebrated our third year wedding anniversary, and visited our family in Utah and Washington. It was a blast! Here are some picture highlights.
