So to finish out some pics and videos of our wonderful week in Aspen, here are 2 videos of Kevin climbing the rock wall. Unbelievably, Kevin pulled himself up the wall with his one arm. He now weighs about 217 pounds, add to that all the gear, and he amazed me that he could do it!
The first video is long because it's all but the last darn seconds of him climbing the wall. My finger slipped and turned it off just as he was ringing the bell, but I quickly got it going again. You gotta love his new quote right at the end after ringing the bell, lol.
Piece of cake, right? He sounded like he was dying, lol.
And here is the final photo of our trip. It's Kevin receiving a medal for a job well done.
A big thanks need to go out to the VA for putting such a wonderful trip together for these guys/gals. It was a great week full of fun and camaraderie and I hope very much that Kevin will go back next year!
And on to the real world - not too much happened this week for us. Kevin's taking it easy while his toe heals from the toenail removal. He's wearing a walking boot which tends to slip off rather easily so we aren't doing too much. I don't really know how long he'll have to wear it, but hopefully he can put his sneakers on soon.
That's pretty much it so I'll catch y'all next week!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
