9. Be adventurous.


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

Monday we spent the day at Snow Mountain. 
The five of us (us plus the Nana) climbed into the family raft on Avalanche Alley. I will confess to being a tad bit nervous. Just beyond our raft in the picture, is a drop off. Then you go flying down the man made snow straight to the bottom of the mountain. Where you are greeted by a lovely employee who says "Welcome to the bottom!" real chipper like!

On the first time down, Pumpkin had her eyes closed and held onto Nana. Let's just say I don't think she was trying to keep the Nana in the raft! 

But she went - because Pumpkin is at heart an adventurer. Adventurers have all kinds of life experiences that others never will.

Be adventurous.
