Vacation 2011 – Day 8

Today was a busy and active day in Charlotte. After a pancake breakfast, the Fishers and we headed out to the Whitewater Center for some outdoor fun. We only had time and budget for one activity, and rock climbing won the day.

We weren’t up for that one just yet, so we tried a few easier courses. They also happened to be in the shade. Samantha was the only experienced climber in our family, having gone once before as part of a Brownie expedition.

Jake wasn’t about to let that deter him. He didn’t quite reach the top, but he made it about 15 feet up one of the courses. I think floating down may have been his favorite part.

Kerri took to it as well. She made it to the top and was already arranging a follow up date back in Dayton by the time we were leaving.

With appetites on full alert, we next brought picnic lunches from Price’s Chicken Coop to the park. Now that is finger-lickin’ good food.

The day ended with sandwiches and sweet potato fries at Duckworth’s. I believe we duly earned the beer sampler.

One last bit of news to wrap up a loose end from yesterday: Anne won the game of Catan that we finished this afternoon. I believe my students may see the game, too.
