Wine and Canvas
I've had some fun events over the past few days. Had a fabulous time at Wine and Canvas with a group of writer friends. If you have never been to a Wine and Canvas, check it out. They are a lot of fun. What I attended was a private event, but there are plenty of dates that are open to the public. The concept is you are guided in the creation of a painting by a "teacher" artist and during this time you can purchase some wine and sip to your heart's content while you paint. There are a lot of laughs involved and if you are scared of painting or nervous, just drink more wine! It makes it easier :)
Over the weekend, we traveled south to Kings Island and spent the day just having fun. The kiddo got to go have fun with Grandma & Grandpa's house so Mom and Dad lived the high life riding the big kid rides. I was a little nervous, not because of the rides - I've always loved amusement parks - but because the last few experiences on roller coasters weren't the most pleasant. I ended up not feeling so good.
I'm going to chalk those up as anomalies.
The day was cloudy, but the rain held off for us. We waited in line for Firehawk for about 90 minutes. I thought it was worth it. This is the roller coaster that makes you feel like you are flying and I loved it. We got lucky and ended up in the very first row. The weird thing about this ride is that because you get flipped over onto your stomach (as you are lying flat) there are times you feel like you are going to fly out of the seat. Once on your stomach though the feeling of flying is one of a kind.
Flight of Fear was another awesome ride. This coaster is in the dark - like space mountain - but I think it is much much much better. We ended the day with Banshee and that ride is a trip. It was the perfect ride in my opinion to end the day on.
So my experience at Kings Island was a good one. No headache, no upset stomach. Just like the old days. Guess I still got it! :)
