We are trying to ease into this school-year thing.  Trying to ease into summer’s-over-but-I-don’t-want-it-to-be…  A weekend at Cedar Point gave our family the perfect getaway!  Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio is celebrating Halloween in a BIG way.  The fall/Halloween decorations were outstanding.

We stayed at Castaway Bay, which is a Cedar Point property but it is a very short drive away from the park.  We chose it because it has an indoor waterpark and Rosie loves to swim!  It also seemed like a perfect way to transition since we are missing summer days.  Our room was very comfortable – a nice size and everything felt new and clean.

In addition to the standard coffee pot, hair dryer, iron, ironing board… there is a refrigerator and microwave in the room!  Families across America say “thank you” to hotels that include a refrigerator and a microwave.  Traveling with children can be crazy expensive, but if you can make your own snacks and/or breakfast, it saves so much money.  And if you have a child with allergies or refrigerated medicine, it’s a necessity.

The water park was clean, warm, and BIG fun!  The wave pool was our favorite, but Rosie loved the “Critter Cove” too.  She’s not into tube slides, so we didn’t try those but in a few years…  we’ll be slidin’!

Have you heard of #Halloweekends?  Cedar Point transforms the park with imaginative, stunning Halloween decorations!  Rosie was entranced by all the pumpkins, skeletons, ghosts, and more.  Here’s just a sampling!

Snoopy is the main character at Cedar Point.  Even Charlie Brown was in a fall mood!

Celebrate at Cedar Point!

Who knew monsters could do the Electric Slide?!

Cedar Point is the Roller Coaster Capital of the world!!  There are rides for everyone from the bravest to ahem, the cautious (us).

And no Kelly’s Lucky You post is complete with something about food!  This perfect fall treat was delicious!

One of my favorite things about food at Cedar Point is that they have franchise restaurtants!
