Vacation Part 3
One night we went to San Destin to Baytowne Wharf. It's like this cool little village back behind a beautiful hotel. I highly recommend going to see it if you ever get a chance! It's got all kinds of neat shops and restaurants. It's also got some fun activities for kids. There was a ropes course and this huge trampoline that you jumped on with bungee cords. There was also a zip line. As soon as Gabe saw this he wantedto ride it. I immediately thought NO WAY! But he was insistent, and I saw kids much smaller than him riding this thing. So he and Matt bought a ticket and up they went! I have to admit I was a little nervous for him. They had to walk up several flights of stairs and at the top was this long platform that he had to walk out onto by himself. I had seen a few kids get scared and not step off, they ended up walking back down the stairs. I was certain that Gabe would be one of these kids. Boy did he prove me wrong! He got up to the top and slowly made his way to the end of the platform. And then he just stepped off!! I was so proud! That's what I love about Gabe, he will try just about anything once.
