Costa Rica is full of what they call "canopy tours," or zip-lines. I found one in our area that said they would take kids as young as four. I was kicking myself because Jonah, although he was still about a month away from turning four, could totally pass for a four year old, but I had already told the canopy company the kids ages. Terrible of me to even consider fudging the numbers, I simply wrote them back and assured them that he acts and looks like a four year old. A reminder that honesty is truly the best policy, they replied "I keep an open mind, let's try it." and we were in! Where we go one we go all!
|All suited up and ready for the fun!|
|These two were completely stoked! Not fearful at all.|
|This kid is Mr. Super Fun! He is always living life with the|
greatest enthusiasm! Laughter comes so easily for him, it
is wonderfully contagious.
|Jonah and Eli got to go down with a friend.|
|The rest of us zoomed solo.|
|They also had a couple of rope bridges. Aaron and I both|
agreed that although we were higher and faster riding the cables,
this was the scariest!
|We also got to repel off a couple of towers. The oldest three even dropped upside|
down. Then they sat on this log waiting for the rest of the group.
|Which made a perfect target for Aaron who was|
coming down with the water bottles.
|At the end we were rewarded with fresh pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, and|
watermelon, and a jump into space on the tarzan swing.
Tessa: "Today we went and met guys who's names were Orlando, William, and Jacob. They were very nice. We went on 9 zip-lines and 11 platforms and 2 repelling ropes. I repelled upside down on the ropes. We also went on two rope bridges that are really skinny and wobbly. At the end we found a hut and got food and we did the tarzan swing. I loved it!!!"
