Not exactly "Careful Caleb"...

As a last ditch effort to get some fun in before our summer was officially over, we took a quick trip to New Braunfels to visit "The Original" Schlitterbahn. Chris' mom ("MeeMaw") drove up and had fun with us. We stayed at the resort at Schlitterbahn that overlooks the Comal River. As we floated the river Sunday night, we got to see the "Skycoaster" and the crazies being dropped 180 feet...definitely NOT my cup of tea. Here's how the conversation went...

Caleb: "I want to do that!"
Me: "Ummm...."
MeeMaw: "I'll do it! I do it every year! But it's the last thing I do before I leave the park."
Caleb: "Maybe I'll do it with you...AND I'll even pull the cord!"
Chris: "We'll look into it tomorrow."
Me: "Ummmm...."

Fast-forward to Monday afternoon. My kids were sun-kissed and maybe even a little water-logged from the fun of the day. MeeMaw decided that it was time for the "Screaming Skycoaster". As we approached the desk, Caleb said, "I'm not sure I want to go right now. Maybe later..."

That's my boy. Careful Caleb.

Chris and MeeMaw quickly chimed in that they were going NOW and this would be his only opportunity. Careful Caleb evidently got a little carefree. He was tall enough, so he decided to try it out. And, yes, he even pulled the cord. If I could figure out how to download the video we bought, I would post it here. You would hear the onlookers in awe of the "little boy" that was going up 180 feet into the air. You would hear Cole yelling, "Go Ca-leb!". And you would hear me in all of my country-accent glory yelling, "Woooooo Hoooooo!" (at least it wasn't "Yeee Haaaw!", right?) Alas, I can't get it to work, so you can make some sound effects as you scroll down through these pictures. It was only after they landed that I asked myself what exactly I was thinking when I let my 6 year old do that...

And we just thought he was brave doing the Boogie Bahn....
