Climb Time

Last Saturday, we made our annual pilgrimmage to Indianapolis to meet up with 4 of our best friends. We drove down from Grand Rapids, Rob and Kate drove up from Kentucky, and Chris and Rachel drove over from Ohio.

We went to a place called "Climb Time"

It was a lot of fun! My profession (massage therapy) caused me to not participate as much as I would have liked. As soon as I got there my hands and forearms assessed the walls and said something like, "ummm, yeah.. after everything you put us through all week, I quit!" So, I enjoyed watching more than climbing, but I DID make it up a few times :-)

Anyway, it was so nice to have a little break from the craziness that was January. I can hear you thinking, "But Leslie, didn't you guys just go to Mexico?". Yes, we did. aaaaaand then we got back. aaaaand then the poop hit the fan in a few of our teens' lives, and we needed a break (already) to have someone encourage and nurture our tired hearts and spirits. Our lil' trip did just that.

(Youth ministry = kind of challenging, actually)

I digress...

Here are some pictures from a fun weekend! Enjoy!

Josh is a very good climber!


  1. Looks like you had a lovely trip. It's always rejuvenating to see friends/take a little break. Hope things get better for your teenagers. You two are awesome for what you do! You guys will be in my prayers!

  2. I want to go rock climbing. I have never been!
