WORDLESS & WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

This is a picture that my friend took when they all went camping last weekend. Four of the guys and my daughter, Miranda, climbed up a steep trail on the side of that cliff and they all took turns jumping off it, which was approximately 35 feet down! Apparently, my friends (the girls) didn't know that my daughter had no fear of heights, and they thought she was going to get in trouble by my husband for jumping off. Of course, the guys that were up there with her were totally encouraging her to do it...lol. She was totally not in trouble! My husband was like, "Wow, Miranda!!" But, just so you know, our friends waited right there at the water to make sure she was okay!

See my girl in the middle of the picture??? She rocks! You go, girl!

GOOD GOLLY MISS MIRANDA!!! That's impressive! I didn't notice her until you pointed her out. You weren't kidding when you said she wasn't afraid to try anything. I totally would have chickened out.

Oh my word! I am totally not ready for this with my boys! Thankfully I have one that has a huge respect for heights. (like me) it´s gotten worse for me though through the years.

It is awesome that she can do that! What an incredible feet!

Sweet Annabelle said...

I think I would've fainted as she jumped - - - and missed the shot!

MoziEsmé said...

Alrighty!

These things leave me petrified, but my husband does them all the time, so I'm sure my girl will be attempting some crazy stunts, too.

Staci said...

That's one brave girl! I could never do it!

Joy said...

That is so BRAVE! Yep, I'd never do it! But I've never denied the fact that I'm a chicken.

Happy WW!

Wow, that's all I can say. I'm having anxiety just looking at the picture. I am so afraid of heights it's pathetic. Good for her!!

I would have had a fit. Lol! Seriously, I would have curled up in a corner somewhere freaking out!!!

Very awesome.

Melissa said...

WOW! I jumped off a 50-foot cliff in Jamaica, and will NEVER do that again! It was such a long fall, that I (for some unknown reason) thought that I should have hit the water already, so instead of keeping my legs straight, I bent them into a sitting position. So, yah, my tailbone took the brunt of the fall, and it broke! OMG! The pain was unbelievable and I still had to swim back to the boat.....

So, yah, your girl is pretty brave! Rock on girl, and always remember to KEEP YOUR LEGS STRAIGHT!

Daphine said...

Are you kidding me?!?!?!? What a brave thing she is!!! I am so not afraid of heights either, but I sure wouldn't have been bold enough to jump off this cliff and into the water! Oh my goodness! I am tripping on this....lol!
