While we were out snowboarding the kids went to the snowmobiles.
Here we are with the girls after ice skating for a few hours. 
This is frosty, they were doing a movie of some kind and asked us to skate around with frosty.
But instead while frosty was skating backwards and Jerami was spinning the girls on the sled... Frosty got tripped up!
And here I am.. yes doesnt this look graceful? I fell 2 seconds later!! :) 
We forgot to bring cameras during the snowboarding. But it really happened! I was able to get up on the board, not heel side like I tried last time.. but toeside instead. We went for about six hours or so while the kids were off snowmobiling with the grandparents. I had to snowboard backwards most of the time.. which I was totally fine with, I just couldnt seem to get control while going down faced forward. I started to feel that my shoes were too small, and I ended up walking down one of the longer runs.. Maybe I walke 1.5 to 2 miles? I did however stop and sit down when there was a pretty spot to enjoy the view.
We had a great trip, and some friends came out to ski while we were snow boarding. What a fun weekend! Hope you enjoyed the pictures, I found my camera!!! yay!

Too fun, Mel. What else is going on with you? You should call me one of these days. I'd call you, but my brain doesn't work anymore. Hopefully, I'll just have interrupted nights soon, instead of everything I'm dealing with now! Be good!!!


Luke- I cant wait!!!! :)

River- there should be a link too of the fall but I havent gotten an email on it. It was so funny! This snowman didnt fall apart when knocked over luckily.

Tacy- Mine doesnt work either, I do think about you alot though... but my brain doesnt register "get in touch" I have no excuse!!! at least you found me on here )

I'm so impressed. I tried snowboarding once and spent just about 4 hours sliding on my butt down an icy mountain. I think I'll just stick to water skiing. LOL.
