More sledding adventures…

As promised, here is Hayden’s super jump that Tori caught at a moments notice…

From 2009-01-22, Tori’s

Please click on picture to see an amazing jump…

Hayden is quite a dare devil and is very tough.  All afternoon the kids took videos trying to capture themselves going off their jump.  Hayden’s jump was by far the most impressive of all the kids!  He is very proud of how far he was able to fly.  He will admit it hurt his stomach… just a little though and kept sledding the rest of the day.

This summer we spent a fun filled weekend at Holland Lake for the Braaten Family Reunion.  It was a great weekend getting caught up with everyone and seeing all the new additions. One of the highlights was when a couple of the more daring type decided to try out a rope swing that swung out over Holland Lake at heights of up to 20 ft (this is a very debatable question around here btw) and drop in at just the right moment.  You had to let go at the peak of the swing to make sure you would drop into the deeper part of the lake, not too soon or…well… lets not go there!  And you definitely could not ride the rope back to the hillside or you would crash into the giant  tree that held the rope.  The first one is of Sawyer going off…

You can imagine the mother’s heart inside of me when Mark and I walked up to the swing  just in time to see our 7 year old playing Tarzan off this rope!  There wasn’t even time to talk some motherly sense into him, his feet were off the ground and he was in full motion.  They had been there the night before with their uncle and few other of the Braaten clan, and later that night when Garrett told me about going off the rope swing I didn’t think too much of it…until we walked up on him doing this…

This isn’t the best angle to fully appreciate the height of this swing, but these pictures put it in a little better perspective…
