Texas – Day 1: This isn't flying. This is falling with style!

Monday, April 14, 2008

I’m alive! Sorry I wasn’t more specific about my Texas activities in the “will” post. I wasn’t 100% sure if we would actually participate in such a life threatening outing and didn’t want to come off as a wimp if we didn’t. What did we do?

We went SKYDIVING! That’s right; I jumped out of a plane and saw the beautiful state of Texas from the sky! It had to be one of the most amazing moments of my life. If I could do it again right now, I would! I had the jump videotaped but I don’t get the DVD until the end of this week. Once I get it I will try and figure out how to get it up on here so you can see it. Basically it’s 55 sec of me screaming and then 5 min of me say, “Oh, wow that was amazing” over and over again while we parachuted down. It’s still kind of a funny video.

If you want a nice little summary of what I did on my first day, please read Sarah’s blog. She did a nice little write-up.
