Birthday Weekend in Bend, OR!

So Aaron and I decided to go skiing in Oregon for my birthday weekend.  I really wanted to do something, and I haven't really gone anywhere since I started my new job back in September, so I was EXTREMELY excited to get out of town for the weekend!! 

We chose to go to Mt. Bachelor because we got a great deal on the tickets (2 for 1).  The day before we leave my dad decides to tell me,

"You should have told me sooner!  I can get free tickets to Mt. Bachelor.  Always check with Daddy first." 


Anyhow, I LOVELOVELOVED it!!  I've never been skiing outside of the Reno/Tahoe area, so it was really neat to go skiing in Oregon.  But it was COLD!  We took the summit lift a couple of times, and it was so cold I thought my skin was going to fall off.
Unfortunately, I sucked at taking pictures because it was so cold I could bring myself to take my gloves off. 
This are the pictures I was able to snap though!  Enjoy :-)

1st day was a bluebird day.  Beautiful!  Everyone was raving about how you could see the sky, etc. etc.  I thought, "Big deal."  But then the next day I realized why it was such a big deal.

The second day was soooo GLOOMY!  You could barely see your hand in front of your face.  I fell from making a turn on the BUNNY HILL because I couldn't really tell which way was up.  It was the craziest feeling ever - I have ever experienced that kind of weather before.  It was INSANE!!  

THAT'S HOW COLD IT WAS!!!!  The lift was growing ice!
Driving.  Was.  HELL.
Sooo cold.

... I just realized I didn't take any pictures of the two of us...
