The second most fun place in Charlotte? Definitely the White Water Center. We spent the day there once Daddy arrived for the weekend. A gorgeous (HOT!) summer day.
First up was the rock climbing wall. Rory thought she wanted to try it, until it turned out that she was so small that an instructor would have to belay her. Then she decided she's rather stay on the ground. (Little Miss Independent.)
Lily couldn't wait to climb that wall.
Mommy & Lily.
(Notice she's higher than me!)
Little rock-climbing rock star!
Rory preferred climbing these rocks, thankyouverymuch!
Daddy went rafting.
The girls dunked their feet in the river.
They were waiting for Auntie & Mommy, who were paddleboarding.
After a super-yummy lunch, Mommy & Auntie went on a giant zip line.
And then Daddy, Auntie AND LILY went on a zip line in the woods.
Here comes Lily...
Poor little Roo. The minimum weight for everything was 45 pounds. She is not quite 30 pounds yet. She spent a lot of this day frustrated and crying. And covered in dirt.
But she did take this picture.
Before we left, Lily and Daddy went on one last zipline together.
We spent a small fortune on bottled water, and we were all stinky and exhausted on the way home, but it was just about the greatest day ever.
