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. . .

You DO rock Edith. There, now you have two sources of outside confirmation.

I should point out that while there is ample phhotographic evidence here that Lissa does, in fact, rock - there is a lack of evidence that you enjoy the same status. The picture of the wrist band just isn't sufficient.

Yeah, I handed Lissa the camera when I went up, but it didn't occur to her to take any pictures. I should have instructed her, but I think I'm relieved that she forgot to document the view of my...self from below.
You'll just have to take my word for it--I got a foot on the turtle shell before I reached my mental and physical limit. Next time I'm going all the way to the top.
