Sunshine and Snowboardin'

Jim and I went snowboarding together (finally!) on Saturday and had a blast. It was 40 degrees and totally sunny. We ended up taking off our hats, coats, and even gloves because we were so hot. Jim has the funniest sunburn on his face. He wore goggles cause it was so bright and totally looks like he still has them on. We are both still getting the hang of boarding but made a major improvement. I caught my back edge and biffed it hard twice. I mean head slamming the ground, hat and glasses flying off, me just laying there to get my bearings. I have been so sore the last couple of days, especially my neck. I think I got a good case of whiplash but it was still dang fun. Of course I forgot my camera, but I'll have to post a picture of our new boards when I take one-they are way sweet! By the way, new boards are especially slippery and fast! Be warned!

We had a fun weekend because the girls were at a sleepover at Grandma's (thanks Mom!). Jim and I went to a movie (10,000 B.C.-it was good) Friday night and spent Saturday together in Driggs (looking at a house we're interested in) and then boardin'. It's so good to spend time together without the kids every once in a while.

You guys are brave to do the snowboard thing! I am still terrible at skiing unlike Spencer who is a Pro. I completely agree that it is important to have that one on one time without the kids!

Christine- I went through and read some of your past posts. You are hilarious. I think that you should write a book- seriously. I would buy it! You are way brave to go snowboarding. I think I'll just stick with dry, safe, solid ground! Did you see that my boys tagged Ashtyn and Jordyn? -- Am

Christine-
I love your blog, you are so funny!
Are you guys wanting to move to Driggs? We need to have a get together sometime soon because it seems like that is the only time I ever get to talk to everyone.
