Weeeeeeeeeee!


Claude and I signed up for a trapeze lesson through a groupon offer a few months back. We cashed in on it last Thursday and I had no idea what was in store for us. I'm sort of glad, because otherwise it might have been impossible to get me to go!

Trapeze!
I must say it exhilarating, terrifying, stressful, exciting and empowering all wrapped in a nice little package.

They start you off with a nice, simple jump and swing. The entire time - from ladder climb until the moment I jumped - I was nothing short of freaking out.

Then before you can try and decide if you can do THAT again they don't waste any time and move on to the next thing, which for us meant putting our legs up on the bar and doing a back-flip dismount.

Here are two videos, the first one is jump #5 which is basically preparation for jump #6...which, is a catch! Weeeeeeeeeeeee!
