Snowboarding in March!

Heather was singing at church on Sunday and Robyn John & Lucas were home from Vegas for a family wedding so Alex and I made the trip back home to Burley again. Robyn and John had just purchased some "sick" snowboarding gear on sale in Vegas and wanted to test it out so we hit the slopes. It's almost spring and we're out snowboarding! It was nice because this time Heather could come with us unlike last time over Christmas that she couldn't. Garrett was missing this time around and he seriously makes it even funner because you see him do these hilarious stunts! We missed you bud! As you can tell in the picture, I went the second half of the day with just a sweatshirt and no coat! That's how nice it was! I'm paying for it now though because this morning I broke out with 2 lips full of sun blisters because I didn't put sunscreen on my lips....HORRIBLE enough to not be able to go to work. I'm babying them like there's no tomorrow and I can see the progress, but still. I hate having this stupid Herpes Simplex virus. It makes my lips so dang sensative to bacteria and sunlight that I can almost expect at least a small cold sore everytime I'm out in the sun. It's ugly. I work at the front desk and it's bad enough I would definitely get stares! My top lip is the worst: 3X the size it should be with a ton of oozing blisters and bright pink swollen color. I can't even eat anything except out of a straw. I won't post any pictures because let's be honest...that's why I didn't go to work today! I'm more self conscious than anything I think but ya...life goes on! I'm just looking at the bright side: this same thing happened about a year and a half ago and it was 5X worse! At least it's not THAT bad! Anyway...sorry for the graphic detail. . .

Katelyn brought home a kid she met at ISU. His name was Jake and he was super cool and nice. It was only his second time snowboarding (he's normally a skiier) and he did great. It was mainly Alex and I and Jake & Katelyn because we kept being seperated from the rest of the group after lunch time.
