Spring Break

Last weekend as you know we went snowboarding. On this trip we realized that we are not really that into snowboarding/skiing. It was fun but we weren't like "Wohoo! Snowboarding!".

We got there right when it opened and went down about 4 times and we were done. This is partly due to my traumatic experience...

So usually we just go up the lift that takes you about half way up the mountain and go from there cause I know the trail. But since all the runs were open we decided to go all the way to the top, something I have never done before. I am shaking on the way up, not because I am cold but because I am scared out of my mind. I'm a wimp, I know. Anyways, we get to the top and and Brennon tells me to just stay on Sidewinder the whole way down. Easy enough right? So I'm skiing down and it gets to a T in the trail and Sidewinders' up to the right and I accidentally went down so if any of you have skied, you know its pretty impossible to go uphill. So I think it probably should meet up somewhere along the way. So I go down. About 2.5 seconds after I make this decision, I get this knot in my stomach when I realize maybe there are not green runs (the easy ones) all the way down the hill. So at this point I'm freaking out. Then I see a lodge. The run ends at a lodge. I then ask some hard core girl if there is any way to get to the bottom from here. She smart-allecly says "Not unless you wanna walk".

I seriously considered it.

Then I break open my trusty map and try to pull it together. I have to go back up to the top, which I wasn't really sure it even led to the top, and find my way back down. By myself. So, I get on the lift, by myself, and check the map again. I am shaking and almost crying at this point, thinking I'm gonna have to go down a hard run to get to the bottom from where was at. I took off my gloves to check the map and try and hold my poles all at the same time. So something had to give.

It was my glove.

It plummeted to its death, never to be seen again. This is when the tears came.

Well, it turns out I didn't have to go down a hard run the lift took me right to where I had "missed my exit", so I took that and ended up safely at the bottom, where Brennon had been waiting for me for 15 minutes. Besides a frozen hand and a bruised ego, I was fine. But done.

Luckily, Brennon was done too so we went to the car, ate our lunch, and headed back.

Here's a few pictures of this momentous occasion.

The evil mountain of death.

Since I don't currently have a stable job right now(anybody need a nanny??), I decided to go up to Jo City where my family was going and where all the fun happens. But Brennon couldn't come cause someone in this relationship has to be responsible I guess. It was the first time being married that we have been apart for a night. My family got pretty sick of me mentioning my husband that I missed on a daily basis. It was only 3 days so I survived. Here are some of the highlights of the trip-

We did some Hip Hop Abs. My mom and Breea were also there but this is the only picture I have. Yeah, go ahead, laugh it up. Who'll be laughing when I have rock hard abs?

Uncle Jason barbecued chicken and Kristal and I made it pretty. Your mouths are all watering huh.

We played a hard core game of volleyball. My mom and I were an unstoppable duo out there. That's me looking all sporty in the middle, probably about to spike it or something.

Another night we had a delicious dinner at Kristal's. I just thought the table setting was adorable and look at grandma's cute face.

The cute kids table. The ugly kids table not pictured.

We also did some singing around the piano which was lovely.

And he's just plain cute.

Breea and I also went with Kayla and Kristal to take her senior pictures. Yeah, she got the looks in the family. It was pretty funny trying to find cool places in Holbrook to take pictures. If any of you have been to Holbrook, you know what I mean. But Kristal could take pictures in a dumpster and it could go in Vogue.

We weren't really dressed to take pictures but still a cute picture of half my sisters.

So that was it. Kayla, Breea, Mom, Grandma and me all drove to Payson on Wednesday to meet Brennon to take Kayla and I back home. We ate at Chilies where we ate one of the most delicious deserts ever, The White Chocolate Molton Lava Cake. I thought it was fantastic, no one else really did. Seriously, amazing

This weekend we did basically nothing, which was great. Not looking forward to going back to school tomorrow, but I guess life must go on. Hope everyone's Spring Break was awesome!

Oh and I don't know if this video will be funny to anyone but it was hilarious in person. So, i guess, enjoy!

I'm glad you survived the "mountain of death"....ha ha. You're funny. I, too, have had many dramatic experiences on the mountain. And I, also, really dislike the "hard core" snowboard chicks who think that they are too cool for school.
J-town sounds like fun. Oh and I know ALL about Holbrook. It's my hometown (when I was 0-6). How on earth does she find places to take those cute pictures. And i TOTALLY know where that blueish/greenish triangle wall is!

Kristal said...

White Chocolate Molten Lava Cake is the best thing since, well, it's the best thing EVER!!! We'll have to take each other out for our birthdays and eat a whole one! I'll start saving my points now.

It was a good time! I'm glad you gusy came up. I'm in a slight depression...going through Guttery girl withdrawls. I'll be fine though, don't worry about me...oh and Boss....seriously cute!

I went down the mountain of death too! I am scared to go down it again cause half-way down I wanted to die especially from steep places it takes you down! Never again! After that all I wanted to do was stay on the bunny hill! Atleast I wouldnt die on that! Looks like you had a great spring break!

You have to know that Chevy dog is say,"Chill out Brody" I love the picture of G-ma at Kristal's. I'm so jealous about your week at Jo Town. Where was your cute loverboy? I didn't see him in any pictures? Are you ready for March Madness? I like to call it Saturday Shopping while Keith is glued to the TV.
