I took Lissa on a mommy-daughter date last Thursday.
We went indoor rock climbing. It was a first for both of us.

Lissa's goal was to climb up high enough to touch that green thing that looks like a turtle shell. She got so close!

(Here she takes a little rest.)
Unfortunately, the more she tried, the weaker and shakier and more blistery became her hands. We learned that you can climb the highest on your first go before you use up your strength.

And Lissa found a new use for the fountains just outside the Salomon Center. (Ahhhhh...)

My favorite part? Trying something new and exciting (and a little scary) with my daughter along.

Second best? Outside confirmation that. . .
