Monkey Motion!

We are vacationing in Kelowna this week and took a drive into Penticton today. We took the kids for our 2nd annual family canal ride. Last year when we went Eva slept on me the entire way. This year, not so much....she decided to hop into the canal and then scream in sheer terror when her feet hit the weeds! Yeah, everyone looked at as and were probably thinking we were hurting her but what do they know anyways! I don't have any pictures of the canal ride to post because I didn't want to risk getting my camera wet. What I do have pictures of is these 3 monkeys at Loco Landing also found in Penticton. These particular pictures are of the kids having an amazing time on the Monkey Motion ride!

This little monkey thought it was pretty cool how high she could jump. She wasn't brave enough to try a flip on her own but the attendant was kind enough to help her flip over....

This monkey had No Fear when it cam to doing flips on the monkey motion! I think he managed to get 3 successful flips done. The funny part was the first flip he didn't grab back on to the ropes and wound up hanging upside down and eventually fell out of his harness! It was soooo funny to watch. He obviously wasn't traumatized because he got right back in and attempted a couple more!This little monkey was not so brave either. She did have huge smiles while doing her "high" jumps. You can always count on her to release shrieks of pure enjoyment!
