But among all the haste of moving, we had to take time this week to celebrate Stella's 9th birthday.
She wanted to do something as a family, because sadly, this is really the last time we'll be all living under one roof as a family for several years to come. She also chose something that everyone could participate in, and so we headed off to the Wavre Adventure park on this very chilly day in April to swing from great heights, and climb, and jump, and play as a family.
She made a great choice really, and above all, we hope she had a memorable time.
This time, Matt stayed on the ground to help the boys and take photos with a standby camera, while I climbed to the treetops with the girls. It's definitely more fun to be up in the trees and the continuous belay made for a lot more confidence with the kids on each cable line. For me it brought back great childhood memories of a zip line at a friend's house where we'd repeatedly sail through the treetops and then smack into a stop at the bottom.
