Little Red Riding Hood wanted her picture taken in front of her favorite animals. She loves the color pink so had to be photographed in front of the flamingos. of course!
They were harnessed in and taught about climbing gear. To my joy and amazement, they both went through all of the levels (all the way to the top). Furthermore, they encouraged each other all along the way! These two are my main bickerers and spend loads of time in strife. It was really nice to see them encourage each other. I am glad we only sent the two of them up there. I think it was a great moment for building a positive memory in their relationship.
I bet this was good exercise for Tom Sawyer's core issues. It was also great for both of their self esteems.
Watching them made me one proud Mom. My poor husband and mother did not get their pictures taken the whole day. I am not sure how that happened. It was a lovely family outing.
