Now this is happy monday!

This weekend we went snowboarding (my first time and Scott's second).

It. Was. Awesome.

I am a little banged and bruised today, but really looking forward to going back again soon, if it stays cold enough.

I thought it was funny that our instructor mentioned that there was nothing in the evolutionary history of humans that prepared us to slide down a hill of ice on a thin board, and have to lean the ways we do (on a snowboard) to keep from falling all the time.

After a day on the bunny hill I can enthusiastically agree with him. Every part of me wanted to lean the "wrong" way, which led to quite a few spills, but after 3 or so hours, I was finally getting it down. For more pictures :).
