Flash Back Friday 1/31/14

When the older kids were younger, we would spend weekends walking the mall and going to lunch. At one point in time a new sporting goods store, Galyans, popped up. It was an exciting store with tents, camping equipment, golf stuff, anything and everything else sports related and a two story ROCK CLIMBING WALL that was free of charge!

Since it was free, the kids made a few attempts; some attempts were quite interesting (and a bit comical).

Sadly, the boys discovered that they had a fear of heights. They were brave enough to harness themselves and were able to climb up around 3ft off the ground before they gave up. Their older sister ventured her way all the way to the top and rang the bell that sounded off when you reached the top. It was hard for us not to laugh at the boys, especially since there were much younger kids doing it. SN- We all laugh at each other, that’s how we made our skin so thick 😉 

I will say that the boys did eventually get over their fear of everything and ventured on to joining the Navy.
