Today was the first warm day we have had in a long time and it made me want to blog about some of the winter activities we did. Greg always finds fun activities for us. We went to the World Speed Skating Championship back in January. Here is Greg outside of the Olympic Oval.
We also went to the World Aerial Ski Competition in Park City. It was the first time either of us had been to a skiing event like this. It was incredible what the athletes were able to do. They ski down a super steep slope up a ramp that catapults them 30 feet into the air. They twist and turn and somehow land on the feet again. We were so impressed and also really cold. We went with our friends, Noah and LaShae. All the other attendees were wearing snowboarding gear and all bundled up. We were slightly less prepared. We were all in jeans and Greg was wearing his work shoes. It was freezing. It was hard to smile for pictures because our lips were so cold and becoming fat. I definitely want to do this again next year.
My favorite activity was learning how to curl. We took a 2 hour introductory course at the Olympic Oval with our friends, Clark and Autumn. Greg was a natural of course. He says this is his last shot to become an Olympian. I think Greg wants to join a league now. Curling is way harder then it looks. Sweeping the ice is a workout. Beneath is a picture of Greg and me with our brooms.
