Cedar Point's Halloweekends Mom Blogger Event

Last Friday my family and I got to spend the day at Cedar Point for a Halloweekends Kick-off event for mom bloggers and we had a blast! I was so nervous about going since I haven't been on a roller coaster in over 5 years but my nerves settled fast. I had the opportunity to ride the Gatekeeper for the first time and experience Cedar Point's featured haunted house, Zombie High School. The Gatekeeper is now my favorite ride! Zombie High School scared the doody out of me but I'm a huge sissy when it comes to haunted houses. 
We spent most of our time at Planet Snoopy because my 2 1/2 year old daughter was having way too much fun on the rides. She's so fearless! The little booger kept begging to go on the coasters but obviously she's too little. I can't wait until she is big enough to ride them!
Halloweekends is the best time to experience Cedar Point. It's not super hot out, the lines aren't 2 hours long, the decorations are fabulous, the haunted houses are spooky, and the shows are spectacular! They even have a little fall play area called Howl-O-Palooza for the kiddos! 
Howl-O-Palooza has a a fun house called the Magical House on Boo Hill, a Peanuts Halloween show, kids' costume contest, hay bale maze, and special appearances by the Peanut Gallery, I mean characters. Halloweekends also has a Trick-or-Treat with the Dinosaurs trail with 50 life-sized animated dinosaurs and the Monster Midway Invasion celebration parade; perfect for the kids. 

Shows featured at Halloweekends include The Edge of Madness Infernal Nightmare at the Red Garter Saloon, the Skeleton Crew at Celebration Plaza by the Midway, Sideshow: A Carnival of Magic at the Jack Aldrich Theatre, Gypsy Fortune Tellers by the Frontier trail, Friendly Monsters at Howl-O-Palooza, Halloween Hullabaloo at the Goul Time Theatre, Monster Under My Bed at the Planet Snoopy Stage, and Funtime Frolics at the Camp Spooky Theatre. We had a chance to check out the Skeleton Crew and were completely blown away by their performance. What a spectacle and a must see!
Cedar Point has 10 spooky haunted houses set up for Halloweekends this year with the feature being Zombie High School which I mentioned previously. Blood on the Bayou, CarnEvil, Cut Throat Cove, Corn Stalkers, Erie Estate, Eternity Infirmary, Fear Faire, Screamworks, and the Chamber of Horrors are also available for extra screams. We didn't get a chance to check these out because we're all a bunch of babies and I wasn't going by myself. No way! I've been through some of Cedar Point's haunted houses before and I will never venture in alone!
Cedar Point's Halloweekends has 10 walk through attractions, six live shows, 60 performers, 60 parade characters, 300 Screamsters, 20 make-up artists that trasform the Screamsters in under four hours, 450 prosthetics, 4,500 square feet of wax bodies in the Chamber of Horrors, 67,200 corn stalks, 800 pumpkins, 400 gourds, and 96 bushel baskets. Halloweekends take 4 weeks to build and a full year of brain storming and creating. Every year I think Cedar Point gets bigger and better. They're going to need more land soon! 

I wish we never had to leave. We only got to experience Friday evening because I had to work the next day (Booooooo) but I really hope to get back before they close for the winter. I'd love for my daughter to have the opportunity to see all of what Saturday has to offer at Halloweekends. If you haven't been to Cedar Point before, I'd highly recommend putting a trip there on your bucket list. Cedar Point is located in Sandusky Ohio on the beaches of Lake Erie. It is absolutely the best place to visit for family fun through spring, summer, and fall.

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality.
