this is how days should be spent

we used to go snowboarding once a year. one week out west. but the last couple of years it didn’t work out so we thought we’d treat ourselves to an entire month of snowboarding at sierra at tahoe. leave it to us to pick one of the driest years they’ve had, but we’re making the most of it!

i look like either a 10 year old boy or a pez dispenser. definitely not a 40 year old “lady”01

i’ve only wiped out a couple of times. and luckily they’ve been relatively safe wipe outs. thank you for the private hot tub! 05
