She'll jump off anything!!

My eldest child and only daughter has the travel bug. She has done a couple of months in Malaysia and Cambodia and recently had her second trip to New Zealand.  Today Jody posted a photo of her gorgeous girls 13th birthday and I was remembering my daughter and how relatively easy she was as a teenager.

There is something about New Zealand that brings out the dare devil in my girl. Last time she bungee jumped.

This time she found a couple of new things to give her mother nightmares for years to come.

 That's her and Megan hanging in the air from the platform at the front!!  That platform at the back is where she bungee jumped from last time.

Not content to fall backwards ( and then go back again to fall front first!!) she decided that jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet might be fun. 

I'm sure the view was amazing

from up there.

and she did seem to be enjoying it.

But I must say this is my favourite photo.
If I had photos of the helicopter ride over the glacier I would put that in too.
So now that smugness I used to have over a relatively pain free time living with a teenage girl has gone cause it seems she is making up for the lack of stress back then by tripling it now she is in her 20's.
(So far the three boys have kept their feet on the ground.)
