Friends are Awesome!

Last year Nathan and I went to the wedding of a friend of mine in NY. We were excited to meet her new husband and couldn't wait to spend time getting to know them. They've spent the last year in South Korea teaching English to some very cute, young children. Laura blogged about it at Kilpatz Kronicle.
Yesterday we finally got to spend time with them. They are home in the States and have been traveling around visiting friends and family. Dan grew up close to us and loves Cedar Point. Laura has never been so they were trying to work in a visit. Nathan and I jumped at the chance to go with them and we loved having them stay with us as well. We took Nathan's brother Peter with us.
It was a PERFECT Cedar Point day. Short lines, lots of sunshine, and nice cool air. We were able to hit every major coaster 2 or more times and still have time for some of the other cool rides. It's HallowWeekends at Cedar Point so we got to see the really cheesy Halloween Parade with Snoopy and the other Peanuts characters. Here are a few pictures that I snapped with my cell phone.
Dan had to make a Dippin Dots stop. There's a newer ride called maXair. It spins as it swings back and forth. I think it holds close to 60 people. The guys rode it and Laura and I watched. They really enjoyed it. Nathan. Peter. Dan.

maxair is a pretty freaky ride! I like that cheesey parade;)

we are still debating on passes for next year...sounds like you all had a great time! I actually think The halloweekends are pretty fun though I do not like to be "spooked"!

Nice post and glad you got away!

That looks like such a fun day, I was really hoping to get there this year, but that isn't going to happen now.. At least my kids got some amusment park time back in the summer at Dollywood.
Love all the pictures, that maxair thing looks really cool
