Sharing pics from my kids birthday!!

My kids turned 10 last week. 10!!! I can't believe how quickly the last decade has flown. This was the first year we didn't throw a party. I think they are reaching the age where we don't need to do that anymore. So I allowed them to play hookey from school and we had a fun day. Our fun day was spent at the White Water Center in Charlotte, NC. I did a lot of firsts. I'm terrified of heights, but I also like to challenge myself. So when they wanted to go zip-lining and do the ropes course, I was like, "Okay, lets do it." Momma can't back out in front of her kids, soooo I zip-lined and I did the ropes course. Guess what??? IT. WAS. AWESOME!!!

I am zip-lined converted. It was so thrilling. I can't believe I haven't done it before now. I unfortunately didn't get any pics from the Mega Line, my crap phone went in the fritz right as my kids were getting all hooked onto the wire. BUT I did get other pics.


That's my boy starting the intermediate ropes course.



And this is the girl. And yes, I did this too. I backed up so I could take some pics before they hooked me up to follow.

















My beautiful girl!

My handsome boy.


Getting our gear on so we can zip the Mega Line!

Me playing it up for the camera.

Getting ready to zip-line. Right before my phone fritzed out.

After the zip-line. Yes the stupid phone actually worked AFTER we zipped

Playing it up some more.

My boy!

My girl!


Getting ready to kayak. Seriously, people. Peace is found in a kayak. I loved it!!

Getting ready to zip on a much short line.

There she goes!

The boys turn!

There he goes!

They loved zipping too!







The advanced rope course. This really tested your mind. There is a part where you are 60 feet above the ground. It was scary!










Yep, he fell off the wire.

The guide coming to help him back up.

I have to get in the pics some way. So yes, selfie!! As you can see I DID the ropes course even if there is no proof.
