Since we had a day off school today, we decided to go snowboarding! We got a tram pass - which I have never done before - and it is the coolest thing. You board this boat thing and it takes you to the very top (at least as high as they will let you go) and then you have any number of runs to go down and instead of having to go up the lift again and again, there is nothing but mountain to go down. And we wouldn't be the girls that we are if we didn't stop to take a few pictures along the way.
For some reason every time that we moved there would be random lime green snow. It didn't really make any sense and we couldn't tell where it was coming from. It was just green. Very green.
We stopped to take a little lunch break about halfway down. While there we got quite a few comments about being stopped. At one point all three of us (Emily, Allison, and I) decided that the next time someone commented we were going to offer them some carrots. Unfortunately, the opportunity never presented itself. In this picture though, it almost did as you can tell from the analyzing look on Emily's face.
We had so much fun today! I don't remember the last time that I went snowboarding with just girls - or if that has ever even happened before today. Normally there are boys present (and we love you boys!). But the problem when going with boys is that they like to go fast and do tricks...we are more the take your time and enjoy the ride type. That doesn't mean that we don't like to have fun though! And kudos to Allison for doing a killer job snowboarding her first time in years. This is definitely an event that will be repeated.
