Snowboarding Adventure

Bucket List
Snowboarding: Check!!

I can now check off snowboarding from my bucket list!
This was my first time snowboarding and well all I can say is that...
It's fun but not as easy as it looks.
Snowboarding is definitely something that takes practice and
not mastered the first time around!

I think the whole experience from putting on all the
layers of clothing to getting those boots on.. and getting on that snow 
and trying to figure out how to stand was definitely an exciting adventure.
Will I snowboard again?? Yes, I want to be able to get on that snow and not
spend most of the time falling on that hard snow in other words I want to master this sport!

After our snowboarding fun day, our adventure did not stop there..
Here is the story..
As we are heading back home, the guys in the front talking and my friend and I
in the back also talking, all of a sudden our friend, the driver, says, "the tires are losing pressure." 
We all looked at each other and long story short, one of the tires was
losing so much air that we literally could not keep driving.
We finally made it to the closest gas station and got some road side assistance; 
thank god for road side assistance!
Since we were going to be there for a while.. my friend Melanie and I decided that
the spot we were at was perfect for pictures.
So while the guys took care of the tire problem
We took care of taking pictures. To end our adventurous day we decided to drive back 
home and eat the best BBQ in town, "Bobby-Q," so if you are ever in the phoenix area I definitely 
recommend this bbq place!! 
And this was our day.. Definitely a fun day!!











Take a look at that BIG bolt!

And the damage it did after a few minutes.

  1. I really want to learn to snowboard, but now that we have Maile, it's kind of been put on the back burner ... We'll probably end up learning together! Haha. Looks like you had a blast!

    1. Hi Katie! We really did have a blast.. it definitely is something different, at least for me it was! Hopefully once Maile is a little older you can all go snowboarding!!

  2. The one time I went snowboarding, I spent the day on my bum (i.e., just fell down a lot). Checking off things from the bucket list is just fantastic! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
