Extreme Sports...Winter Edition!

Sunday, January 17, 2010

So about a month before before Christmas Big D started asking for a snowboard...
It took us awhile to figure out exactly what he was saying...for some reason - that wasn't one of his more clear requests...
Finally, one day...I said - "A snowboard?" To which he replied..."YES! THAT is what I've been talkin' about!"

We weren't sure if that was something he really did want or if he'd even know what to do with one - an odd request considering it's been about a dozen or more years since either of his parents have even donned a pair of snow skis -
But the night before we celebrated his 3rd birthday with a celebration...I saw one on clearance at Target and thought - what the hell!

Immediately after seeing it he put his feet in the straps, bent his knees and started jumping!
What the...

He then insisted on practicing on chairs...YIKES!
He quickly graduated from kid chairs to kitchen chairs...


So today we decided to put the goofy little hill in our backyard to good use...


And even big sister took a turn!



I have to say...She was a superstar on that thing...making it all the way down the hill upright! For sure a great last minute decision...
If we're going to be stuck with winter...we may as well dig in and enjoy it!

Hunter has one like that, and both kids love it. Best clearance money I ever spent!

Anyone who skis has seen the little ones. They ski better than they walk. Looks like you've got a superstar there. Stopping by from SITS.

So cute. We got very similar snowboards for our boys for Christmas, too. Looking forward to meeting you at the FMSC event tonight.
