Rock Climbing!

So, as Kurtis said in his last post...we went rock climbing last weekend. Sorry it took a week to put these pics up but I'm slow, what can I say? My sister Meg and her husband Steve go climbing like every week at least and Steve is like Spider Man. They talked us into going with them. It was really fun. I have to admit I didn't realize how afraid of heights I was until I was half way up the wall. I kind of had a freak out. I started sweating and breathing really hard. But, I got over it. Meg was climbing by me and talked me up the wall and it got better and better every time. By the time we were done though, my muscles were shaking! It was a lot of work. Hopefully next time we go I will learn to use my legs more cause I think I pretty much pulled myself up with my arms. I don't think we will be the avid rock climbers that Meg and Steve are but we will go again for sure! So here are a couple pics from our excursion.

P.S. Can I just say how over winter I am?! We got mountain bikes for Christmas and I can't wait until it is warm and we can use them! We also got camping stuff for our wedding so I am so excited to go on road trips and use the stuff we got. Every weekend will be a new adventure when it gets warm enough!

Just so you all know, we do have some new pics coming. We went rock climbing at an indoor climbing place in Provo and we took some pics. It was rather fun. I really thought I would die because I can barely lift a bag of garbage to put it in the dumpster let alone this tubby body of mine up a wall. It was crazy that I actually did. Like 6 times! It wasn't extremely graceful or pretty, but I did it and had fun at the same time. Thanks to Steve and Meg for the great day! Well that's about it for now. I do have simulator training on Saturday and I am not really looking forward to it. It's good that we have to do it, it's just not that much fun because it's stressful. We sit and fly that thing doing all sorts of emergency training stuff for about 4 hours. I have to study for the next couple days to refresh my memory on some stuff and get up to speed on changes to procedures that have come in the last few months. Anyway, that's boring and I don't want to bore any of you with stupid pilot stuff. Hopefully we will get those pictures up soon and you can see how awesome we are at climbing. Ha ha!
