Birthday party fun!

My daughter was invited to her dearest school friends birthday party last weekend.
It was held at the indoor rock climbing gym her parents own, Planet Rock!
It's Very Awesome.... always fun! (even for the athletically challenged)
If you haven't tried (the safe, weight defying rigging, climate controlled version of) rock climbing you really should!
Unfortunately I couldn't go with her this year but dad happily took my place and had a GREAT time.

The next morning they extended an invitation to join them in their backyard...


where they have HUGE ZIPLINE!!
As you would expect from uber rock climbing athletes its the real deal...
600' long, 60' up!

MY BABY!!!!!
HOOOOLD ON!!!



She was a bit scared the first time.
But she had one of her fearless friends from the Fairy Club with her!
If you missed the Fairy Club post it's a cute story.














But everything is more fun with more friends!!!
Look at that HAPPY trio!!
EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

 
 
No, not my best photographic achievement but heck I was 2 football fields away!!!
I love these memory catchers anyways!!



What an AMAZING experience for our girls!!!


BIG Heart Felt "Thank YOU" to our hosts!!

Alexandra & Graham Bell

I remember using an avocado green rotary dial phone at my grandmothers house. I almost kept it when she passed....I should have!
I found this one at a local tag sale and couldn't leave behind such a fantastic photo prop!
(don't tell my family but this photography thing is just a front to disguise my vintage addiction...clever don't ya think?)
Alexandra and her brother Graham had some interesting and amusing conversations.

Old Man Winter is Here!

I finally made it to this tree farm down the road before the morning sun burned off all Jack Frosts hard work!
Isn't it beautiful? 





I hope to catch some frosted whiskers tomorrow morning!

VOTE!! 2012

I loved the simple blog post on Farm Fresh Fun this morning.

It inspired me and my helpers to write a post...

 

Brought to you by these...


and the last patriotic hurrah will be over. No more excuses, the festive porch bunting (made by the kids and I) must be packed away. Sigh...see you next summer happy porch!
