Something OId Does Something New
Allow me to tell you what I learned about snowboarding....
1) it's harder than it looks
2) kids are much, much better than grown ups
3) it's freakin expensive - not a sport for us poor inner-city kids
4) it's the most fun you'll ever have on a frozen hill
So, for my birthday this year I wanted to try something different. I'm not sure where the idea came from, as I hate cold weather and normally opt to stay inside. Methinks my husband suggested it at some point and then once I decided, I would not be swayed. It was a balmy 20 degrees, maybe 5 or 10 when you factor in the windchill. We had SO much fun though! Now I'm totally going to be buying some used equipment so we can do this again.
Belly was fearless. And he was great. D was the first to really wipe out, and as he lay on the frozen ground with his board at an unnatural angle away from his body, he threw a thumbs up and yelled, "That was awesome!"
Yep, that about sums it up.
