I haven’t done this with Chevy since she was 1 year:

Powell Beach SUmmerland

Gyro Beach kelowna First time on zipline (flying fox) all by her

 

Chevy went for it!!  She actually did it!!  I didn’t think she would go through with this zip line into the water, it looks pretty intimdating from the starting ramp!  But she actually gave up a chance for a sushi dinner to stay and wait for her turn!

Then she did it again! (I only had to help bring the rope back because she was too short/deep water)

Chevy rocked it!!

I helped prepare the posters but Chevy added her info herself and talked easily for about 1.2 hour about dino-facts and answering questions like a pro!!
