This past weekend we drove down to Cedar Point. In Sandusky. Ohio. 10 hours by car.
Alex, Holly, Ferda and I all took the day off work and left town early Friday morning. We stopped a few times on the way but managed to make it there around 10pm. We met up with Alex's family from Windsor and the twelve of us had a great time: beers, soft pretzels, coasters - what's not to like!?
The weather cooperated pretty well considering hurricane Ike was headed our way. All things considered it was a great weekend. Thank you Ryan Hill for organizing, and thank you Alex and Holly for taking us to America's Roller Coast!
Two new Hollyisms emerged from the weekend that I must share:
1) She was meaning to say someone was a 'third-wheel', however she used the term 'third-leg' - which we explained to her is a slang term for penis.
2) At a restaurant in the States, after I ordered a coffee to drink with my dinner, Holly asked the server if they had any flavoured coffees. The server replied: "Well we have iced coffees." Holly then asked: "Are those cold?"
