Tara's List

Here is Tara's list of 10 things that she wants to do/accomplish in the next 10 years (Robby's list is coming soon-so I have been told!)

1. Climb Half Dome in Yosemite
2. Run a marathon (no hurry on that one though!)
3. Learn to swim (no, I can't swim, yes, that's right, I can't swim)
4. Zip line (hopefully at Soaring Colorado) (doesn't it sound fun? I just need all of my kids to weigh 50+ pounds and quite a bit of cash!) (completed 7/20/10-no kids this time since we celebrated our 10th anniversary sans kids)
5. Train ride through Canada (I don't know anything about Canada but it sounds fun!)
6. RV through Utah (which would help me accomplish goal #10)
7. Read a book every month (that may be a little much-maybe I should just say read more!)
8. See New York City in Christmas time
9. Pick apples and make apple pie (Completed half 9/30/10-picking apples outside of cottage in Bar Harbor, Maine)

Wow - that's quite a list but I have no doubt you will make good progress on it if not accomplish all of those. We actually went to a rainforest cafe in Galveston the other day - Kaleigh was a little bit terrified!
