Pain!

So what you didn't see in the photos the other day from our little snowboarding adventure was Daddy trying out standing up on Evan's sled while going down the hill. Needless to say, I had a few rather unimpressive looking wipeouts, and today I'm paying for it! My whole body hurts. The first time I went down the hill standing up, I did alright, until I started going really fast, then my knee drove right into the icy ground and I ended up in a pile at the bottom of the hill. I felt a burning sensation in my knee that I'd never felt before. I gingerly rose to my feet, with the wind nearly knocked out of me, I squeezed out a "Im okay" to Evan at the top of the hill. Once the pain subsided, I gained enough confidence to try again. I made it down the hill rather flawlessly a few times, but the falls I did have still hurt a few days later. Falling on that icy ground was like falling on concrete, and lets face it, I'm not getting any younger.
