When I'm 12 I'll Ride the Zipline

Saturday we had a family get together at the lake house for Pierce's birthday.  In the spirit of Go, Diego, Go, I cooked a fiesta of chicken enchiladas, slow cooked black beans, and yellow rice.  My brother and his family came, as well as Pam and George (my aunt and uncle).  With 5 kids under the age of 5, everyone got lots of attention.  Here are Reid and Cort with Pop Pop and Cat Cat:

Pierce got some great train sets.  He is still very much into Thomas. 

Do you remember in August when we went to Wintergreen?  Paul and I rode one of those huge ziplines.  Pierce wasn't allowed - the age cut off was 12.  He still talks about when he is 12 years old, he'll ride the zipline.  Turns out, he won't have to wait that long.  Diego rides a zipline, so you can see why Pierce is so eager to ride one.
Pop Pop and Cat Cat got Pierce his own zipline for his birthday.  It's been a huge hit.

Go, Diego, Go!

A zip line was a perfect gift. I remember my neighbors having one when I was little. It was such fun.

Oh I love it! Pop Pop and Cat Cat sure know how to buy the perfect birthday gifts! Now you've got me trying to figure out which trees in my yard we can do that to for my kids! lol

My husband went on a zip line this Summer. He loved it! We have talked about building one on our property even before we bought it 15 years ago. I think it's time to do it even if it is a smaller scale just for the kids.

Have a Great Day!

I love zip lines. Had one when I was young and when I had children I made one for them.. Top of the shed across the back yard..
My son now has a zip line across his back yard.. It starts 15 feet in the air on top of the tree house and then ends on other side of his backyard. The kids just love it~! Memories of childhood are so wonderful~!
