Cedar Point is the best amusement park ever. It has more roller coasters than any other park in the world. In my opinion, it is so much better than Six Flags, Disneyland, etc. I grew up going to this Ohio park annually with my dad and I just love it! This was also my first night and day away from Blake, and it actually went pretty well. I called home about four times to make sure he was alright, but Grandma Julie loved taking care of him. It was incredibly fun for all of us couples to have a day together again without our children even though we love them. It felt like a mini spring break!
Some of our favorite memories of the trip were Troy’s 2-hour long blood-pressure rising financial advice session in the car, “pillow talk” in the hotel room where we had had all planned on getting a good night’s sleep without our children but instead stayed up late laughing, and Troy getting pulled over by a cop on the way home.
When the cop asked for the registration, Troy and Mitch fiddled around for several minutes trying to figure out how to open the glove compartment. We were driving my parent’s vehicle and didn’t know how open anything. Then, Troy accidentally stepped on the gas pedal as he handed the cop several expired registrations. I don’t know why my dad even keeps those! We figured we would definitely get a ticket, but when the cop came back, he let Troy off with a warning. He said, “Watching you guys try to figure out how to open the glove compartment was the funniest thing I’ve seen all night!” Troy added, “How about revving up the engine?” The cop said, “That was pretty funny too.” We imagined that later that night he went and told all his cop friends about these idiots that couldn’t figure out their car.
