Climbing out of my comfort zone

Heights scare me! I’m not going to lie I really don’t do well with them. It is my one true fear and my kids falling from heights fear is the absolute worst (which doesn’t help that my youngest has always been like spiderman). When our local YMCA did a silent auction I decided to bid on the 5 personal climbing experience. I knew my kids would love it and I knew I needed to show them what it is like to get out of your comfort zone. I’m a true believer in modeling healthy behavior to your kids.  Here are some pictures: IMG_1600 Why do climbing harnesses always make your butt look HUGE?!?!?!

I would like to thank Vertical Endeavors of St Paul! Thanks for the donation to the silent auction!  Thanks for not laughing at me.  My youngest (Spiderman since birth) wants to go back every week. I don’t know about that, but I do think we will return as a family to have some fun.

Here is their website in case anyone else wants to have some climbing fun!
