Where I've Been

I have been watching my sister's kids - she just moved out here from out east - YAY!!!
adding her three to mine, that made 6 kids under 6 - WOW!!! i dont know how you moms out there with more than 3 do it!

I have also been in Utah. I escaped the craziness of the 6 kids to go snowboarding and also to go to my sis' baby blessing. It was so much fun! I got to see Lyd's new house (and her new baby!!), owen, little steph, dawn (and fam), aunt steph, sherri, and my cousin jen, more aunts and even my bro in law sam too!! Most importantly, i got to go snowboarding FINALLY!!! For those of you who know me well, you will know that i absolutely LOVE snowboarding - it seriously makes me SO HAPPY
The pic is of me. It snowed a LOT!!! So, we had the most wonderful snow and so much fun hitting the powder! I took little steph with me the first day, but she broke her tailbone. :( The second day I took owen. This run was so much fun! seriously, look at how fluffy that is!!!

ps, utah is absolutely beautiful. i miss the mountains.

Now, I am home.

did i tell you that I had so much fun???!!!!!

This first video is my bro owen doing a five. He was landing this all day, until i got my little phone's camera out... still, i think he is a stud. i keep thinking he is just this little 8 yr old punk... i guess he has grown up!!!

The second video is actually me doing a 3!!! I rented a helmet, so I actually wasnt scared. actually, i used to do these all the time (before marriage) but that was when i was willing to sacrifice my body for fun... one season in particular i had 3 concussions and pulled out my shoulder! now that i am a mom, i am not so willing to do that to myself. somehow, with a helmet, i forgot all of that... i didnt land this one perfectly, but, i must say i was pretty proud of myself!

I've been wondering where you've been! I loved snowboarding in my younger years, but I can only imagine what I would look like out there now!

P.S. Is your whole family moving here? Have I mentioned I'm jealous. =(
