How to give Kulani a heart attack ...

Post this:


Kulani is deathly afraid of heights. His mom says he wouldn't even climb up steps to sit in bleachers at his brothers' football games when he was little. I like that he doesn't like heights, because I don't like them too much either, so he doesn't dare me to do things he wouldn't do (like jump off big bridges or rock walls). My family, on the other hand, are daredevils. There's the infamous near-death experience by Brian jumping off cliffs in Cauldron Linn near Twin Falls. He first hit the side of the canyon wall before ragdolling into the river below. Then there was the time we went to City of Rocks and B.J. casually just started free climbing the face of one of the tallest rock formations there. I couldn't watch. After he got down to solid ground he admitted that that was probably a foolish thing to do only a few weeks before leaving on his mission. Honestly, our family could probably stay up all night recounting all the death-defying stunts done by family members. And where do we get it from? Norvel the Magnificent. I am convinced it is stuff like the above picture that caused many of us to turn out the way we have. Lissy, the one who Grandpa is holding in the picture above, is very tender hearted and pretty timid. But with Grandpa holding her, she was willing to view the Shoshone Falls from atop a fence. Lilia stayed by Kulani's side the whole time we were there.

Here's another viewpoint of the falls:


Looks like Lissy needs her bangs trimmed.

I think our family is pretty much just like yours! How we survived without any one dying is beyond me! Weren't the falls awesome!? It was neat to see them so full!
