Engaging 8:13

Family fun at Red Mountain Park

Family fun at Red Mountain Park  Photo cred: Brett Whitcomb

Thanks to my job (and some rad family reunion shirts), this past Saturday my family got to participate in a photo shoot for our local convention and visitors bureau. The morning started off with a large group of us staging a family reunion. My step-mother and I were posted up in the back tossing a frisbee back and forth. My dad and brother threw a football. Several cousins and an uncle also participated in the scene. In hindsight it reminds of a Seurat painting. After much needed showers and a change of clothes, two of my cousins, my brother and I headed over to Red Mountain Park for part two of the shoot. Following a vigorous walk and several pep talks, the four of us took on the Mega Zip! This was our first time zip lining and it was amazing! I will definitely do it again.

Nothing like overcoming fears and photo shoots to bring a family together. Here’s to more Bentley adventures in the coming future!

    I haven’t been to Red Top yet, but a few weeks ago I attempted the Tree Top Ropes course at Callaway Gardens….and had to chicken out halfway through. I wonder if they are similar. The one at Callaway had 26 challenges and there were several ziplines through the whole thing.

    Good for you on doing it!

      You should definitely try it out! The hardest part was just getting to the top. I felt such a rush of excitement and accomplishment once I finally let go and took a leap.
