Full day

Today's deal was going up to Mount Lake Terrace to go see Ted.  We both wanted to see the movie and machupicchu wanted to check out Cinnebarre so it was a day trip!  I found the place originally because I hate kids in movie theaters and because they serve booze, they don't all 'em.  So when I want to see a movie that someone might take their child to, that's my place.

Ted is not a movie to take your child to but Matthew got all jazzed about being able to drink and watch a movie.  They do serve brunch on Sunday's.  It was worth a shot.  Even though my food was underwhelming, the service was kind of weird, it was way too far to go and the movie stunk, it was a fun trip.  It really was.

Coming back we decided to go check out the new ferris wheel when we got home, which we did.


Yesterday was the ferris wheel's opening day so we figured the line would be long but we hoped the gray skies would help keep the crowd down.  We hit it just right.  We waited maybe 30 minutes total from the time we walked up until the time we put our butts on the seats.  The line got much longer after we got on the ride.  It was great.  Just wonderful.  I cannot wait to do it again and again and again.

machupicchu took a lot of pictures and I'm sure they will show up in his journal. I mainly just looked and looked and looked.  There is so much to see.  Next time I'm taking binoculars.

When I walked into my house after, we were in the 7th inning and the Mariners were ahead by 1.  Boston tied it up and now we're in extra innings.  I'm wiped out so I'm just going to relax and watch the rest of the game before deciding anything like what's for dinner.
