Trip to Brian Head over Easter

Despite the fact that my grandmother is going to kill me, we are probably heading to Brian Head to close out the season this weekend. It is the last weekend of the season and there is an Easter Egg hunt as well as the annual Pond Skimming contest. I am going to give pond skimming a go this year and have challenged Jeremy and Jacob to try it too. (Neither seems excited about the idea of getting soaked in 35 degree water.)

I am already starting to miss the season after taking this last week off. I hate to miss the last weekend, despite the warm temps and spring conditions.

It is 88 degrees in Phoenix today and I know what is coming. The AC is already running and I spend yesterday in the backyard doing some yard work. I filled out my FAFSA for the MBA program at SUU today, did my taxes, and bought my tickets to NYC for a work trip in two weeks. I renewed my Suns tickets and bought my Cardinals tickets for next year. I have two brand new mountain bikes in the closet. Lindsey is standing on her own and about to take her first steps and baseball season is starting. So my life has plenty to fill things up. Yet all summer, all I can think about is "How far away is November?"

I am already setting goals for what I want to accomplish next year. I want to throw a switch 180 and a 360. I want to start throwing some grabs. I want to lose 35 lbs. I want to improve my technique in powder. I want to ride some new rails. I want to start the season in better shape so that it doesn't take a month to get over the soreness of riding consecutive days. I want to ski 60 days. I want to finish my MBA. But all of these things can wait one more weekend while I enjoy the finale of the season at Brian Head.
