Snowboarding Day!

Part of the Christmas gifts we gave the kids this year was a gift certificate for a day of snowboard lessons, complete with all the equipment, and lift passes. So last Saturday, Shellise, Bill, Shellise's Friend Megan, and I went to snowboarding up at Snow Basin. Shellise had a scheduled snowboarding class from 10:00 a.m. to Noon.
The weather wasn't great. It rained all morning and made it so that everyone got soaked pretty quickly. But Shellise had a good time learning how to snowboard. Bill & Megan enjoyed the morning too, riding the lift up the hill and snowboarding down many, many times. I enjoyed watching from the Lodge. Shellise did pretty good. She spent a lot of time falling on her rear end and did a few face plants in the snow, but for the most part had fun. However, because the weather was beginning to get even worse, we quickly cut the day short soon after Shellise's class was over.
Even though the weather wasn't the greatest, and Shellise ended up being very sore for the next several days, we still made some good memories and look forward to going again in the near future and when Jessie can go with us. Also....Preferably when the ski's are blue and the sun is shining!

So fun! I haven't been skiing in forever, and I wonder if I even can anymore!
