Colorado Ski Trip
Emma's lifelong friend, Ashley, and her NEW BEAU were in town from England!! For the short time they were here before they moved to NEW ZEALAND, Ashley wanted to take him to the amazing state of Colorado!! When we caught wind of the plans we jumped on board! Haha
Who all went you might ask..Ashley, Emmas friend, Ashley's boyfriend, Nick, Emma, Emma's husband, Ross, Evan, Evan's boyfriend, Darius, and 'our' Nick, our cousin. yes, there were two Nicks.
So.. the idea was we would go and hangout with them right.. well when does anything go according to plan?? We ended up only seeing them for one afternoon out of the 5 days we were there. (The day Emma decided to get super sick.) So that was a bummer, but all is well that ends well!!
Besides the fact that Emma and Nick got sick, Nick and Darius had never been snowboarding before, we were frozen to the core, we didn't actually get to spend the trip with the couple we planned the trip for, we got into a CAR ACCIDENT in the rental of course.. This trip was still amazing, full of hilarious stories and laughter!! It was definitely a learning experience. Like how we discovered that our bodies, as much as we love playing in the snow, are not made for cold weather! Can i get a Whoop Whoop for all us Texans?! ANNDD..Did you know Denver has a goose problem so theres a certain someone invented whats called the Goosinator, to help with the population issue..?? We thought that tidbit was funny..
