Cedar Point

Monday 13th May 2013 was one fabulously fun day for us!  (Well maybe for me and the kids)  Jason had to go into Cleveland and view some rental properties that we have purchased there so we were able to stay at an amazing place called Cedar Point which is a fabulous amusement park that a missionary from Adelaide told us about.  We are so glad we listened to him and went.  It was fabulous and although not every ride was opened it was still loads and loads of fun.

We were actually really lucky as it had just reopened 2 days before we arrived ready for the upcoming holidays and summer season.  They close for approximately 4-5 months due to the weather.  Some rides were still closed as when you get to high apparently it is too windy, but it didn't matter as there were soooooo many other roller coaster rides. There was this amazing new ride called the Gatekeeper which apparently at that time it claimed to be the fastest roller coaster in the world SO of course Michael and I had to try it!!! It was extremely fast and loads of fun! Great memories.

Daniel was sooooo lucky as many of the younger children rides were completely empty!  He just ran around going from one ride to the next having a great time which was great as I could just sit and watch him sometimes and not worry he was pushing in or anything like that!

Mothers Day

Mothers Day 2013 will definitely be one to remember!!!

Waking up on Mothers Day in a modest RV with 8 people isn't everyone's idea of celebrating but I was sooooo grateful to be traveling around America with all these gorgeous people that I love!  (Plus for this trip we actually had a really nice and supportive mattress so that helped!)

Jason and the children made breakfast for me and then I received a gorgeous present from Tiffanys.  Even though I knew it was coming I was still amazed that I had this gorgeous gold bow necklace.  I love it! It will help me to remember this amazing family trip we had together!  It also reminds me of how blessed I am to have a wonderful husband and a wonderful life!

Then we were able to go to church in Kirtland and have great devotionals for mothers and after church the men had all baked lunch for Relief Society women.  I had to ask if they had really baked themselves and everyone I asked said they did.  I was impressed as everything was sooooo yummy.  As usual for most Mormon get togethers there was heaps of food so all the families were able to eat which is another bonus for our family.
