{this moment}

{this moment} - Inspired by SouleMama

When it's still way into the 90s and ungodly humid it's time to find a new indoor activity.  In this case it was a Taste of Climbing at RockQuest in Sharonville, Ohio.  For $10 each kid got to try two climbs in full gear under the watchful eye of a trained staff member.   Foghorn has been talking for months about becoming a professional rock climber when she grew up (despite never having climbed in her life).  She took the first turn and did really well, going about 3/4 of the way up the wall.  The Professor took his first turn and then Foghorn passed to let him take his second and then...she burst into tears and refused take her final turn at all.  She wouldn't discuss what her problem was and on the way home she had a terrible, pained look on her face.  Uncle Chester commented, "I think we just saw a dream die."

That looks like a blast! (Well, not for me with my lack of upper body strength, but for others.) :)
