Yes, our anniversary was a lovely day spent together.
We went out for the best ice cream in town.
We sat in the park and talked while enjoying the creamy goodness.
We took a stroll.
We went out to Johnny Rockets for dinner.
We came home and read side by side.
And finished the night by watching Evan Almighty.
(which was actually quite good.
I was impressed.)
But, friends, two days before our anniversary we headed to Sandusky, OH.
To truly experience the gift we had chosen to share with one another.
A day at America's Roller Coast.
The weather forecast was threatening.
Thunderstorms were predicted for the large majority of the day.
But I knew it was the only day we could go.
And so I prayed.
I even said, "God, I know this is totally selfish, but please please keep the rain at bay.
We need this day to celebrate each other.
Please, God. We will give you the glory."
And that is exactly what I intend on doing!
Never once did it rain on us.
No rides closed down.
The 67-70 degree predicted temps were blown out the water by the summer-like 80s.
Besides the massive number of school groups, the day was quite perfect.
Crowds were relatively low.
We road every ride we hoped to.
Laughed and laughed as we flew over and up and around at insane speeds.
Sure, I got whiplash a time or two
and I'm fairly certain the older coasters can't be safe in the least,
but who cares.
That's half the fun!
And for posterity's sake, a photo journey of our day together.
Why, hello there, Cedar Point.
How are you doing today?
gotta start the day right.
Blue Streak, here we come!
couldn't resist the old school Calypso.
yeah, Sky Ride!
Thank you, Cedar Point, for a memorable day.
Thank you, AAA, for the discounted tickets.
Thank you, Lord, for answering my prayers in such an evident way!
And thank you, husband, for enjoying every moment of our anniversary weekend.
I love you.
