Rock Climbing

That's Melissa (my sister in-law ) in the red sweater
That's me above. Trusting my sister-in-law in a deeper way (as she's what would keep me from falling)!

Andy's brother, Cullen, and his wife Melissa are avid rock climbers. We went with them and Andy's parents to do some rock climbing for their dad's birthday. It turned out to be alot of fun. I actually climbed part of a very large rock ( with Melissa's help). Andy climbed the same rock with much ease. Morgan tried it as well and lasted a whole 2 minutes!! ;). I had a few seconds of panic when I looked down but then quickly looked up to focus on the next grab ahead of me ( a life lesson that I'm using every day now as we are minus a dear family member.

I'm not even close to an expert but was glad that I tried it.

I have to say, you are braver than I. If I went rock climbing, you would find me with my feet planted safely at the bottom.

You shouldn't have told us that you weren't an expert... those pictures fooled me!!!

Jeni- you don't know how many times I have said no to this. But I finally gave in this time

The secret, Laura, Andy strategically angled the camera so it looked like I was going straight up. It still was really hard though!
