Before I go any further, I need to say a HUGE thank you to my dad and Ramona. They have been so willing to help both Kade and I throughout this whole situation. Because Kade and I are still trying to get rid of our condo they have been kind enough to allow Kade to move in to their house as well. That way our condo will remain in pristine condition whenever someone wants to walk through. So THANK YOU! We love you!
Kade starting out on his journey
Not so sure about this choice of activities...
Being rescued by Dave whose not roped up!
A few more encouraging words from his friend Dave
Look at my brave man swinging on a rope while his friend climbs the treacherous way down... The good thing is that Kade knows he deserves to be teased about this little episode!
Kolton tests out the waters... looks comfortable, huh?!
Kolton passing Kade's courageous mark
And true to Gourley tradition, a challenge has been issued... Which brother will prevail?
Uh oh, here comes Kade!
That's right! Passing up Kolton! Go Baby!
This looks like a good place to stop.
But Kolton doesn't give up that easily. He beats Kade by only a few feet. Good job Kolt!
You couldn't tell by the climbing pictures, but it was INCREDIBLY WINDY!!
Our hike back down. You see that little red van? That's where we have to go. Good thing we're hard core adventure seeking individuals....... right!
We finished up our thrill seeking for this trip up to Idaho, so it was time to pack up and say goodbye. I have to admit, we fit a lot more stuff in that one room than either one of us thought possible. But one of the hardest parts of this weekend was Kade saying "see ya" to his wonderful roommates. Thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa Wheeler! We love you so much and are so grateful for the continuing love and support you have given to us, and especially Kade. He got a little teary eyed saying farewell. Thank you for being so willing to take him in for so long, and for letting him know that he is welcome back at any time. That his room will be waiting. Thank you for being such a wonderful example of kindness and generosity. And thank you for being so inspiring to everyone who knows you. We love you!
So that is our new adventure. Thoughts and prayers on Kade's behalf would be very appreciated! He is nervous about this new job and what it holds for us. It is going to be a trial in and of itself getting used to this new situation. As always, thank you for reading!
Love, Kade and Megan
