Since the kids had been cooped up in the van for the past 2 days we decided to try to find something to use up the kids' excess energy. Auntie B had heard about a climbing place, so we decided to check it out.
Asher decided to take a little break halfway up. This one had a nice little bridge for him to sit on.
Apple enjoyed watching her brothers & cousins climb, but was a bit put out that she wasn't old enough to climb yet.
She & I walked around to watch all the kids climb, & she had a fun time on the bouncy toys.
Jelly took a bit of prompting to climb higher than a couple of feet, but he was really proud once he got the hang of it!
Chancery didn't get very many photos taken since I couldn't find her most of the time. She found a little friend to climb with & the two of them climbed together for most of the morning.
Asher climbed almost all of the 75 walls. He was quite tired out by the end of the day, & at bedtime he said, "Daddy, my arms are tired!"
PChad gave Noodle some extra encouragement, & the two of the climbed beside each other a few times.
At the end of the day Noodle climbed almost to the top of the pirate ship!
Here's a picture of Noodle, PChad, Asher & Jelly climbing Mount Rushmore!
