This is NOT my child!

This is my sweet, innocent baby.  What does she want to do on her vacation?

Why, she wants to rock climb.

Are you sure?

Yes, Mom.

Okay, at this point, I could barely snap the pictures, because I was feeling lightheaded.  How did this happen?  How did I create a human being without a fear of heights?  Obviously, I have enough fear for the both of us.

And she rings the bell!

For making it to the top, she gets to go again free if she wants.  Here he is asking if she wants to go again.  She politely declined.  Apparently, once is enough.  But that’s one more than me!

Victory is SWEET!

  1. Yay, what a brave little lady, I have one of those and I too wouldn't be joining her on the ascent lol.

  2. She's obviously got an adventurous spirit! I don't think I would have made it to the bell!

  3. Great job. Very brave. I love the pictures from Rock City. Have not been there in a few years. Always fun.

  4. She did a great job!

    I don't even know if I could do that. I'm terrified of heights.

  5. I felt sick looking at the pics! Way to go girl!

  6. What a cutie! And congratulations to both of you. Her for making it to the top, and you for continuing to inflate your lungs with oxygen. I've been a climber my whole life, but I know that the minute my baby says HEY, I'D LIKE TO GO ROCK CLIMBING? I will die.

    I like your blog; I'm glad I stopped by!
