Here is the group of kids Bailey was racing with. It wasn't a group race, it was an individual race. You had to go around these markers and be timed. If you missed a marker you were automatically DQ'd (disqualified) I learned the cool way to say it by hearing a mom yelling at her daughter for being DQ'd. "We drove all the way up here, waited forever for your turn just to see you get DQ'd?!?!?" <--Kinda sad. That mom was a B, and by B, you know what I mean. No need to fear, Bailey made all his markers so we didn't have to yell at him.
Here he is starting. Still so cute!!
Lucky for you I got it on video. Not good video, I only had my regular camera. He fell right off the bat because he started with his wrong foot, but he didn't get DQ'd, so who cares.
After Bailey's race we went back and got the rest of the kids boards and Dwight took the 3 older ones down the hill while Howie and I waited at the bottom for his turn. Then Dwight took Howie on the bunny hill a couple of times. Again, lucky for you I had my camera, because it is the cutest thing evah! Just be patient it takes about 34 sec to figure out which one is Howie. And it gets cut off at the end because he is about to pee his pants. I had to run with him to the lodge and get him in the stall and rip all his gear off . He ended up peeing all over the stall, but at least not in his snowpants. So he still got another turn.
Howie thought he was pretty cool stuff.
Calvin wanted me to take a picture of him looking cool too.
Ella ate a lot of snow.
We ended up hanging out there the ENTIRE day and I was the only one with regular clothes on. Freezing!! We got back to the car and found a note from someone who had hit our car. But it's cool, because I was there to support my kid on his first race. I will never do it again, so hopefully he will always remember this day.
