Daredevils











Well, after being gone for what seemed like a long time, we're home, and I'm finally starting to catch up on stuff a little. We had a great time and did all sorts of fun stuff. First, we celebrated my Grandparents' 50th Anniversary, which was fun. Almost everyone was there, and some of them I haven't seen in years. The kids and I stayed with my parents for a few days, and then we all went to a reunion on my dad's side. It's been even longer since I've seen some of those guys, and it was fun, too. We camped at the Heber Valley Camp, and there were challenge courses, among other things. The first day, we put harnesses on and were pulled up about 20ft or so and dropped, swinging in the air back and forth for awhile. I was brave and tried it, and it was fun! Carson got to do it as well, but he didn't go all the way up. The next day, Mike arrived, and we went on paddle boats on the lake. That afternoon, we went to another challenge course. First of all, you climb up a 25ft pole with notches, which is hanging from above, so it swings a little. Next, walk across a cable suspended 25ft in the air while holding onto a rope. Last, repel back down to the ground. I decided there was NO WAY I'd try it. Of course, Mike never even asked me, knowing that I don't respond well to pressure. In the end, I decided I could do it, and I'd prove it to myself and everyone. It was scary, but I did it! Mike did too, and he was so fast! Carson really wanted to, but he was a bit too small. Who's kid is he, anyway?

Good job! I would not do either of those things, so I'm super impressed. It was fun to see you. I wish we had more time, but maybe in the future. I'm glad you made it home safely!

Sounds like you guys had a fun summer trip! We still need one of those, you are getting me a bit more motivated. :)

I love that mike doesn't pressure you because he knows you so well, that is so cute!
