Day 1165 - Aug 8, 2011

Today we did something so out of the ordinary. Kevin, Karen, Jared and Johnnie all went zip-lining. Karen's family had went last weekend and they decided to go back and when we mentioned it to Kevin he was excited to go too. (there ya go Moe - Kevin will go with you!)

So we all piled into the van and took off. When we got there everyone got geared up and I took off to the other end with my trusty camera. You can be rest assured that I would not be brave enough to take that step off. Nope. Nosiree.

Anyway, here are all the photos. I already got them ready for print so some of them are different colors, are textured, etc.

You can just tell what a blast he's having, huh? I have to admit to having severe heart palpitations when he was getting ready to jump though. It's so hard letting him do things that I think you have to be crazy to do. But he needs to be as much of the person as he was before the attack and this is who he was - one crazy kid with no fear whatsoever!

I'm with you Leslie, there's no way I'd be getting up on that platform, let alone stepping off of it. GO KEVIN! You did a great job and looked like you were having a blast!

That's awesome! It's just a matter of time before he wants to go parachute jumping now! LOL! I'm just as impressed that he made it to the top as I am that he jumped off. That must have been a pretty tough climb for him.

Glad you've been enjoying your visitors! What was that mysterious dr appt?
