Last year Phil and I were super excited when snowboarding season came along... then I found out I was prego. I kept getting tempted to go anyway since it was only the first trimester of the pregnancy. I didn't give in though and that was probably smart of me. Phil being the nice husband he is didn't go either since that has always been our thing (we went snowboarding all the time together back when we were dating).
Then this year it's been a little more difficult to up and go snowboarding because of work and Kayden. I have never wanted to be the mom to leave my kids with babysitters all the time if I didn't need to. Plus I really do enjoy being around Kayden even though it can be tiring trying to keep up with him. I have also heard of some pretty rotten babysitters out there that are good at fooling parents, and I don't like asking too much from friends. For some reason I just don't want my friends to feel used. He hasn't been away from me too much. Only twice of which he practically slept the whole time both times, so I refuse to leave him with someone new while I don't get service on my phone... at least until he's a little older and weaned.
Anyway so my mom has kept asking me when we wanted to go snowboarding so she could come to town and watch him. We were FINALLY able to plan a day to go! It was awesome to get out and do something Phil and I both enjoy without having any worries about Kayden. Thanks Mom for coming and playing with Kayden... even though you had to drive home in the not so good weather. I really appreciated it. And so did Phil since he hasn't gone a couple times when he had the chance to (because he promised me that we would go together the first time this year and he kept that promise, thanks for not ditching me hun).
These are my super cute snowpants that I got for Christmas. I needed new ones since I'm still too fat for my old ones. Sorry but I'm excited about them so I have to show them off :)
