ok so tomorrow is my birthday...i got out of work today....late.....and got home and was just gonna chill on the couch and go online. then my dad calls and asks what im doing....he said "well i have your birthday part of you present but i dont know if it will last till tomorrow so you might have to use it tonight..." i was like o ok your crazy what is it? and he tells me he has 4 trash barrels of snow so we can set up the box in the backyard!!! we already had the box set up, i was using soap and water on a carpet before tonight. he found an icerink about 20-30 min from our house that was open and that doesnt melt thier snow! so while i put the snow up he set up the lights! i skied for about 3 1/2 hours! i was so excited!!! it was like the coolest gift my dad could give me!!! all my friends at home think im crazy...they dont understand the addiction to skiing...so i thought maybe the NS community would appreciate my lil story!
