Goodbye summer

Our last weekend of summer had us up in the trees, under the ground and climbing walls - it was an adventure!

This was my first summer working full time since having kids and I didn't realize how busy we'd be just getting through the days. J and I decided to make the most of our last weekend of summer and did some things we've been meaning to do for months.

First up was Camp Fortune's aerial park on Saturday for some ziplining fun! I have been wanting to do this forever and we finally did.

We signed in and got our harnesses, helmets and gloves. There was some nervous energy buzzing as we made our way into the forest to the start of the course. Our instructor went over the rules and we made sure the kids could clip everything themselves. They tried the practice area and then we climbed up the first tree.

For the obstacles Little J went first and I was right behind him. Little K and J followed behind us. The second obstacle, Little J and I looked back to see Little K reverse back and start crying. J had to cleverly get them both through the obstacle because once you're up you're up!

For the ziplines I went first so I could help unclip Little J at the other side. J would then send Little K and I would get her unclipped too. Little J was so nervous excited but loved the ziplines!

It took us about 1.5 hours to do the kids course. We made our way back to Ontario and had dinner at one of our favourite restaurants.

Sunday was our underground adventure. Kontinuum is a multimedia show in the light rail station downtown. I had heard good things and we weren't disappointed.

Monday we spent the morning rock climbing at Altitude Gym in Kanata. We decided on passes to the quarry, which is a huge climbing wall that doesn't require harnesses. We climbed until we couldn't climb anymore. Our muscles were sore and tired and J's hands were destroyed.
