You already know (or don’t) that the mister and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary this past weekend.
And I had a little trick up my sleeve planned for him.
JB and I always talk about going to the mountain and giving snowboarding a try (why? B/c we’re trying to kill ourselves early, that’s why).
So Saturday morning (technically, the day before our anniversary) I loaded up the car and off we went!
We were a little too late to make the 11:30AM snowboarding lessons (seriously, minutes) but one of the ticket ladies informed us she’d been snowboarding for years and all we needed to know was:
- Keep your weight on your toes or your heels
- You will go in the direction your shoulder is pointing
“That’s it?,” Jerry and I questioned.
She assured us that that was it and yes, we would fall but stick with it b/c it’s loads of fun.
So we did.
And it was.
And that’s the last time you’ll see me with a snowboard.
I’m going back to skis.
Snowboarding is WAY harder than skiing.
It was a blast, though. At least now I can say I’ve done it.
HAHAHA! That’s my mugshot. That face explains how freaking ridiculously exhausted I was (and I was smiling in the next pic but this one is too funny not to share). 🙂
PP Sorry for the low quality pics – there was no way I was bringing my Nikon on the mountain with all of the falling I knew we’d be doing. Oh, and I’m happy to report no broken bones, no bruises (SERIOUSLY!), just some sore knees and a super sore upper back from landing on my head while I tensed up my body. The Jer-Bear was just generally sore…lucky duck. Have you ever switched from skiing to snowboarding or vice versa? What did you think? I think skiing is WAY easier. Mucho respecto to all you snowboarders out there!
