Zip Lining!

We decided to take the boys to a Zip Lining course last weekend.
Of course, I made the reservations, ignoring the reality that I would need to zip line.
I tried once before as part of a training class at work, and ended up (after a very long time sitting on the super high platform) walking down the tree again.  I just couldn't force myself to scooch off.
This time, though, after much psyching myself up, I did it!  Three times!
Here I am on the second Zip Line - if you're reading this in email you'll need to switch over to the blog to see the 14 second video. 
And here's Brennan on his very first Zip Line! (Another video - switch over to the blog please if you don't see it in your email).
He did great!
Thomas was a natural, having been through a zip line and high ropes course at church camp this summer.
Brennan and me, all suited up and ready to head out.
Me - not sure at all!
I'm so glad I did it and I'm so glad I did 3 different ones!  There were 6 total, but after #3 I stopped, the adrenaline wearing off.  I'd like to do it again someday though and attempt all 3.
The best part was being there with my family, having them cheer me on.

How much fun. One of the longest zip lines in NA is right across the GA state line. Trip want to do it this fall....
