Breaking Promises

I am not a woman of my word. 14 years ago I made a promise to never snowboard again. I broke that promise on Thursday afternoon. Dwight planned a quick mid-week family vacation up in snowy McCall, Idaho. While we were up there we spent a day at Brundage, snowboarding. If you don't believe I did it, come over here and check out my right hip. I'm pretty sure it's broken. I also have this picture with the ski hill in the background, looking all fake and WalMart studio-ish.

You may be thinking, "it's just like riding a bike, you never forget." Well....it's not. It's a pretty big blow to your ego when you're going down the hill and get passed up by your 4 year old yelling, "stay on your heels mom". Thanks for the tip Howie.
Speaking of Howie, look how fancy he is.

I had to delete my first comment because it was not approprriate. J/K I was logged in as my son and he had a cow. What I was trying to say was that Shaun White sure makes it look easy but that doesn't mean old ladies like us should be trying it. --now what are you doing March 12th. I am coming to Boise for a girls night. I just haven't told MK yet.

Erin, it's a virgin screw driver, but still tasty.
Memzy, I was planning on taking pictures of me in action, especially because I got a new outfit for the occasion. But when I actually got up on the hill I was putting all my concentration on not dying, so I forgot about taking pictures.
PearGirl, hold on while I check my calender.....yeah I'm free!

The cuteness that is Howie totally makes up for the h*#ll that is snowboarding.

I've never been snowboarding and I have no real desire to. Everything out there would be passing me up.
I would have loved some video of you doing this! And the image of Howie yelling out instructions to you is priceless.

Thanks for reminding me never to break my own vow of never snowboarding again. I hate it. And that is now my all time favorite picture of Howie. Laughed my head off!!!

Glad you didn't fall and break anything...and will Howie be over his fanciness when he marries my daughter? cuz she drinks her OJ right from the carton, and I don't know how he will feel about that.
