Friday Fun – Date Night at the Carnival!!!!!!!!

Zach and I have been married four and a half years and we still have date nights.  These are really important to us because it is so so SO easy to allow ourselves to get swept away into the busyness of life (especially with owning our own business).  There’s nothing better than making the effort to get out and do something different and have intentional fun with each other!

About a mile away from where we now live a carnival came into town, so we decided to go there the other night with our trusty ‘ol point and shoot camera (who wants to lug around one of our big ones?).

First, we were hungry so we paid $6 for an “Italian sausage” (so they said) but it tasted more like an Italian guy’s foot… we think it had been sitting there for awhile… it wasn’t that great :0/

Then, because it had been YEARS since I had had one, I thought I most definitely needed a CANDY APPLE!!

It was DEE-lish and got all stuck in my teeth and everything :)  I ate that bad boy up like Christmas dinner!

And of course, what’s going to a carnival and watching all the crazy people on the rides (yes, watching… not participating :) without a little popcorn goodness?

Watching everyone on the crazy carnival rides got us talking about making a trip to Cedar Point some time…. Oh my gosh, that would be SO fun!

Cedar Point is “The Roller Coaster Capital Of the World”  in Sandusky, Ohio and my family went there every summer growing up.  Now THAT place has some good (and safe, ha ha…) rides!

Ah, the memories!  I am a HUGE roller coaster lover (used to call them “rolley coasters” :) and I think it is definitely time to leave my stomach behind on some killer rides up North.

Check this video out of one of their roller coasters that have been added to the park since I have been!  Aw snap!!

If any of you want to road trip it there sometime… Oooh, maybe THIS summer! That would be a blast!  Roller coaster lovers and non-roller coaster lovers are welcome.  There is fun for all :)  Ha ha.

Ok, I’m done with my tangent :) Just got me excited there for a bit.  Lol.  Anyone else been to Cedar Point?  What’s your favorite ride?  Wanna go back?  I’m serious!  :)  For those of you who have yet to experience the goodness of Cedar Point, you need to.

I’ll leave you with our parting iPhone carnival photo…
