Bailey wants to sky dive for her 18th birthday. So, for Christmas, we got her an 'Ogden Adventure' that included indoor skydiving at iFly, rock climbing at iRock, and indoor surfing at Flow Rider. We headed to Ogden on a Saturday so she could redeem her present. She had a blast! She's hooked, and wants to go back and do it all again!
|We stopped at the Brigham City Temple on the way down to do baptisms.|
iFly was so fun! She took a short class that gave her instructions on the position she needed to be in, signals to watch for, and how to make slight changes with small movements. Then they got geared up and ready to fly. She got two 1 minute flights. On the second flight, part way into it, the instructor held on to her and took her up to the top of the wind tunnel and back down really fast several times. She said it didn't look like much in the video, but it was such a rush. She said it was even hard to breath when you got to the top. She loved it!

|She just got into the tunnel, so her instructor is helping her learn the correct position.|
|I love this picture! She was grinning the whole time!|
When she was done skydiving, we headed over to iRock, for some rock climbing. She made it to the top, but her forearms were so sore!
|She made it!|
After the rock climbing, she went indoor surfing at Flow Rider. This was hilarious to watch! She did it for an hour, and wiped out enough times that she was pretty banged up by the time we left. She had a couple good rides on the surf board, and lots of very impressive crashes! There were some CRAZY college guys on the opposite side from her. I'm so glad Bailey wasn't in their group. They were nuts! One of them ended up at the bottom, and his shorts were at the top. I was DYING! So funny! Bailey couldn't decide if she liked the sky diving or surfing better. She said they are both super fun, but in totally different ways.
|Getting started with the rope.|
|She loved the boogie board too, but she was determined to get the surfing figured out.|
|She had a pretty good ride on this one!|
|She made it up and back down again before she crashed.|
This post wouldn't be complete without some wipeout videos. Some of them were so funny!
She did pretty good on this one, but the crash was bad!
When we were finished, we tried to do baptisms at the Ogden Temple, but it was too long of a wait. We'll have to go back to that one another day. Super fun adventure!
