“I think we should go separately, like the President and Vice President”

“I think we should go separately, like the President and Vice President”

While at the beach, we saw lots of boats pulling parasailers. Mom kept saying “I want to go!” I ignored her. I’m not a thrill seeker. The thought didn’t sound fun. At. All.

But Tyler pressed. He and his mom had been before. They loved it.

And somehow, one morning, we found ourselves at Chute for the Sky getting fitted for life vests.

I tried to get out of it. I did. I offered to stay behind with Remi. But oh boy! They had a lifevest to fit her and she could ride for free.

So off we went. I cried when the first couple went soaring up over our heads into the sky.

Then a few rounds later, it was our turn. I knew I would like it – when it was over.

I even told Tyler, “We should go separately. Like the President and Vice President don’t travel together.”

He laughed. And we got harnessed in. I held on white knuckled. And up we went!

800 feet of rope, 450 feet high.

They were going to dip us into the water, but we saw a TON of jelly fish below, so Tyler motioned for them not to get us wet.DSC_0174

Our moms went, and my thrill-seeking mama had the best time.

And they totally wanted a dip into the ocean. And they loved it.DSC_0327

I would go again. It was neat. But man, was it facing a fear!
