A 90-year-old woman in Missouri proves it's never to late to try something new and daring in life.

Justin Schmidt has the story.

Skydiving always seemed like something Rosebud Gard wanted to try.

I hope I got all the instructions right. I was kind of worried, I didn't bring my hearing aid.

For the past 20 years or so rosebud has been crossing things off her bucket list.

I wanted to go on a hot air balloon. I got to do that on my 70th birthday.
I wanted to go on a cruise, that was my second thing I wanted to. I wanted to parasail. And I did that, in '95.

I'm really rather excited, I'm not scared a bit, haven't got sense enough I guess.

Rosebud, at 90 years young finally got to the end of her list.

She jumped out of an airplane.

As friends and family watched from the safety of the the ground, they knew she was finally living her dream.

That was wonderful.

We're so thrilled for her. We're excited, we're happy, and she's down.

But just because rosebuds done with her list doesn't mean she'll stop looking for adventure.

You know when we were kids in school as they say what you wanted to come back as, I wanted to come back as a bird.
