So, my birthday was last month. 32. Yep, it was
awful awful awful awesome.
Anyway, to cheer myself up from the dark reality that I am in fact old and only getting older and will probably die soon, I thought it'd be fun to get some friends together and go act like a kid in the snow! Besides, what else is there to do in the dead winter of January? So the Ski Day Birthday Celebration Extravanga was born.
If you've ever been to the Midwest, you're proably baffled as to where in the heck could we possibly ski in Missouri. Well well, let me tell you...it's not all flat around here. Don't get me wrong, we've got plenty of flat in Missouri and we're surrounded by flat (hello Iowa, Illinois, Kansas), but we also have the Ozark Mountains. MOUNTAINS! Did you hear that? Ok, so they're not real mountians, they're more like big hills, but really that's all you need to ski, right? Well, a big hill and snow, of course. Luckily, we were not lacking in snow this winter, so the skiing was actually pretty good. No, not Breckenridge good, but good enough. Whatever. Moving on.
And we're off!
Ryan took the camera down first to get some good action shots for me.
Here's little brother coming down the hill on a snowboard.
I had no idea he could snowboard.
