Brighton ain't so bright

We went snowboarding at Brighton on Friday night with friends Matt and Tim. This was probably my sixth time snowboarding. At times I have thought I could really get into it and get good, but Friday night made these realities apparent:

I am not good.
I am never going to be good.
I hate being cold.

I guess it didn't help that the Great Blizzard of '08 was upon us that night, and huge gusts of snow and wind rocked our lift back and forth. So basically, I am in favor of the other board sports: surfing, skateboarding. Although, I don't think I'm going to be busting out ollies any time soon. The guys had a lot of fun, so call me Nellie Negative.




Also, Jamie has bronchitis and strep and Milo has two ear infections, so please feel sorry for us. Thank you.

That's a bummer. Also, is that a one-piecer on Jamie?

Elinor said the wind was horrible in SLC that night. I'm surprised you didn't complain about that until now.
I do feel sorry for you. AG

Sorry it wasn't as good for you Abby.

I'm still waiting on that album review.

Sarah- Not a one piecer. But wouldn't that be funny?

Tim- It's coming. We need to give it two or three listens. But I'm already loving it.

Mom- I thought of you the whole time the lift was swaying, thinking you'd have some choice words if you were in the same situation.

Sarah's comment made me laugh- hard. :) James could pull it off though, if anyone could.

You're a good sport for going Abby. I always use the excuse that someone has to stay home with the babies.
