Maddy's new BFF
We just got back from a great trip to visit our friends in Columbus, OH. We spent a day in Sandusky at Cedar Point. It was so much fun. We love roller coasters and Cedar Point has 17. We rode eight of the 17. Our favorite by far was Top Thrill Dragster. Zero to 120 mph in 4 seconds and 420 feet tall. This was by far the most extreme ride I've ever been on. It was AWESOME!! Maddy rode the Woodstock roller coaster five times and loved it.

All of us at the end of the Woodstock Roller Coaster ride. I was very excited.
We stayed with our friends Chris and Staci and they took great care of us and showed us a great time. They took us to the Columbus Zoo but Maddy was exhausted from Cedar Point and she wasn't so into it. It looked like a cool zoo but I guess now we have to go back to see it.

Chris and Staci at dinner, I've never seen two people so excited for a Mariachi Band. It was hilarious, but we also had 2 pitchers of margaritas by this time too. :o)
We also went to Kings Island which is another amusement park. I had too many margaritas and had a bit of a headache so I hung out with Maddy at the water and kiddie park. We had lots of fun and Nate got to ride some wooden roller coasters (not my favorite- too bumpy, bad juju with a headache).

Driving Miss Maddy. Love the crooked hat- she looks like a little old lady.
Chris and Staci have the nicest dog, Bailey, and Maddy LOVED her. It was so cute to see Maddy with a dog almost as big as she was. Every morning it was "Good Morning Bailey!" They also would sing Good Morning Milk bone and Maddy would feed Bailey a milk bone or two.
Good Morning Bailey!
