Hello 2013, hello friends. 

I'd like to tell you about what I'm scheming. 

Tuesday, at noon, we have a flight to Brazil scheduled. Currently, we are in Utah. We need to make the 11 hour trek to Los Angeles tomorrow, spend the night, hop on the plane and be on our way.

But. You see... here in Utah it's snowing. Inch after inch, piling up in beautiful drifts of powder. It started snowing about 6 hours ago and hasn't stopped. But my brain has started running with this idea.

Tomorrow, I'd like to fit in a half day of snowboarding. Then we can take the 11 hour trip, fall into bed at around 3 am, and wake up and get on the plane. It may not be a reasonable idea but I definitely want to do it. 

The last 3 weeks, we Bluelilies have been hitting the slopes. Mega. The kids are great skiiers now and Tyler too has joined in on a snowboard- we are a force to be reckoned with. And by reckoned, I mean, if we ski and don't get hot chocolate afterwards we will hurt you. 

There are "some people" who are close to me who think this is a "lunatic idea" and that we should just skip the boarding. But those people are just.... not snowboard addicts. 

I'll let you know how it turns out. 

 

Oh and hey, remember when our kids were tiny? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy do they grow?
