Malia Story & Rock Climbing

Well here's another fun story about Malia. Sometimes I just don't know what to do with her! She is obsessed with stripping everything off! Yesterday I heard her wake up from her nap to find her completely naked, blankets all pulled off the crib and on the floor and she is sitting in a puddle of PEE, what the heck? And of course her diaper is on the floor completely dry. And do you see that her head is half wet, yep that is pee in her HAIR, ugh, gross! I know she looks really sad sitting there naked in her pee, but she's really grumpy when she wakes up and wouldn't look at the camera and I had to get a picture of this...good thing she is so freaken cute!

Ok on to the next item...rock climbing!

Bright and early Monday morning we headed off to windy point up on Mt. Lemmon. We went with two other couples, Adams Cousin Michael and his 9 month pregnant wife and the Pauls. Justin Paul had just taken a class for rock climbing so at least one of us knew what we were doing. Adam and I had both done it before, but not for a long time. Anyone who knows Adam knows that he is terrified of heights, but he can go bungee jumping, totally weird. Anywas he was just a tad nervous about this rock climbing thing. It took a little bit to set everything up and make sure we weren't going to die and I thought Adam was going to have a heart attack anytime anyone got just kind of close to the edge. Adam went down last.
This is overlooking the cliff

I wish you could see the beads of sweat running down his face. I think it took him about 10 minutes to go about two feet, but he did it. He made it down with no trouble at all.

Then came the climbing part. Nice butt shot huh?
And of course he has to get at least one pose in...

...and then he's done. This is one of the couples daughter, I think she is around 6 or 7. She was like a little monkey, just climbed right up, no fear at all. She made it as high as most of us grown ups!

My turn going up the rock. It always looks so much easier from down below. I think I was stuck in this same spot for at least 5 minutes.Adam zoomed in on this shot but there is no way that's getting on here, no butt shots for me! We both made it out alive. I loved it, it's a great workout and it's so much fun. Hopefully we get to go again really soon!

Sam, I totally was hoping you would comment because I thought of you when I wrote that line. :) Rock Climbing looks fun...and scary!

Hey Samantha, Nora here. All 4 of our girls have done that (twins still do) so all 4 have had their diapers duct-taped on at about age 18 mo. and on. It's a bit embarrassing but it works!

Oh my---rock climbing! Who would want to? Wouldn't you rather relax with your feet in the ocean?

Looks fun for you... but not me!

Love, Mom
