Vertical Endeavors / Morton Arboretum

The one trip we took last week while on vacation was first to Vertical Endeavors to do some wall climbing.  We had been before, but this time we took our six year old.  Little “P”  did really well and surely climbed higher than the yellow butterfly that  I struggled to reach.   I suspect she was helped out by the fact that she only weighs forty pounds and the auto belay pretty much gave her “zero gravity” !!  But she had a lot of fun and was very brave going up as far as she did.  She already would like to go back soon.

After the climbing, we made the short trip to The Morton Arboretum.  It was a very nice early fall day to go and since it seemed only her district was off of school she had the Children’s Garden to herself.   A big thanks to my mother-in-law for giving us a membership to the Arboretum.  It was not that long ago (slipping into a Grandpa Simpson moment here) when you could take a whole carload of people into the Arboretum for $8.00.  Now, it’s $11.00 for each adult !!!  It’s nice to have the membership so we can make quick trips there (just to have lunch sometimes) and not have to spend the whole day to get our $11.00 worth.

Enjoy the photos of our visit.
