Something New

by Stacey


We had hoped to go skiing over the long weekend but some early weekend germs but a stop to that plan. By Monday, everyone was healthy and a bit stir crazy. None of us really felt like skiing but we wanted to do something and get out of the house and off the couch. We threw around a bunch of ideas that no one really liked and then Caroline suggested that we go rock climbing. She had attended a birthday party at an indoor rock climbing gym and loved it so we decided to give it a try.

We were really impressed by how hard the girls worked. They were both determined not only to reach the top but to try harder and harder walls each time they climbed. Eventually their arms tired out and they moved back to slightly easier walls but they were excited for the added challenge of wearing a blind fold to climb.



Neither Rob nor I climbed but I must say, I’m thinking we should have given it a try. There is something to be said for doing something new and different and a little bit scary. Maybe next time…



  1. A blindfold to climb?  Whoa.  There is a climbing wall at the Y where I work out but I’ve never tried it — I think my kids would love it when they’re a little older though!

    You totally have to try it, it is so much fun. I have not been in years, but must go again. Looks like had a great time!

  3. Shana Norris says:

    This looks SO fun.  I’d totally do it if we had something like it nearby.  I think you and Rob should do it next time, Stacey 🙂

  4. Jessica says:

    This looks like fun! I’m a cautious person by nature, but I agree with you. It’s wonderfully rewarding to attempt something new and scary.

    Wow, mine are still too young for this, probably, but I can see my daughter loving this. My sister loves to do stuff like this for fun! I photograph it for fun, so I guess that count?
