...on a trapeze! A few weeks ago my sweet friend Monique had the idea to take trapeze lessons for her birthday. What a great idea! We had a blast! At first it was REALLY scary climbing up the ladder and being so HIGH off the ground! I kept thinking, "that tiny bar is supposed to support me how???" It might not look that high, but it was!! Once I conquered my initial fear of heights, it was a BLAST! Thanks Monique for a fun day!! Justin came to support me in case it was the last time he saw me alive (or to be my photographer) :) ha ha ha. It was actually completely safe.
After we practiced a few times and felt a little more comfortable with what we were doing (not that I knew what I was doing in the slightest) we got ready for our "catch." The idea is to grab the arms of the other guy swinging from the opposite bar. I was fortunate enough to get it on my first try. I think it was mostly luck!
