Today was a day for Andrew, Lauren, and Zachary, and they chose to go to the Cave of The Winds and do the
Wind Walker Challenge.
They didn't want to waste any time, so, it was on with the
harness, and with a little instruction, they were
off. It took them all a little while to gain some courage
and get the feel of the course, but, first thing I knew, Lauren
was way up in the air and out over the canyon some 600 feet from the bottom.
Now, the boys were still
being a little
cautious about their footing, and neither one was too anxious about going out over the overhang. I somehow think they kept avoiding it. But, not Lauren...every time I looked she was
up and out or
swinging on a rope...she was being a real monkey girl today. In fact, she told Poppa she wanted him to come to Colorado for the whole summer next year...just so she could come and get her a job here.
Now, I know the boys
too, but...Lauren is one that got her money's worth of entertainment today.
The little ones were really disappointed that they weren't big enough...oh, excuse me...they weren't tall enough to do the Wind Walker, so we had to settle for taking a tour of the cave. Not quite as impressive, but they had a good time. This might mean, I have to come back when they grow taller!
This day like all the others was priceless!
