Everyone. It’s time to meet Red. No, not the color. Red is my brother.
Over time I am sure you will meet all six of my siblings, but today we are talking about Red. He is more commonly known around here as Shred Doggy, Shredman G or Shredeo. Red (Ok, technically his name is Redmond, Redmond Baird Gerard – my parents have a thing for strange, well really odd names) is my 12-year-old superstar of a brother.
Well, he would not call himself a superstar, but in my eyes he’s a Superstar. He does things like front double tens, apparently it’s three spins while doing two flips 30 feet or more in the air. At least that’s what I think a front double ten is, I get pretty confused after the first spin.
I had to go over that last sentence like three times with him. Finally, he got too frustrated and walked away.
He is the most energetic kid you will ever meet. He was just telling me how tired his legs were while spinning himself across the kitchen floor. Even when he is tired, he’s still spinning. He does not stop.
He lives a life that probably any 12-year old boy would love to live. Wait, let me rephrase that, he lives a life that probably anyone would want to live. He travels all over the place. In the last month he has been to Switzerland, Park City, Lake Tahoe, Los Angeles, Big Bear and next it’s back to Park City. He wakes up and pretty much everyday and goes snowboarding. Oh, and he gets boxes and boxes and boxes (seriously, I am not exaggerating) of stuff from Burton, Arnette and a few other sponsors. Yeah, I told you he’s got the life.
Right about now I am guessing you are you asking your self “what about school”? Yup, you guessed it, he is home schooled.
Even though the kid has the life, he works hard. He loves snowboarding, and the attention he gets from magazines and his sponsors has not changed him in the least. He snowboards cause he loves it. He loves flying through air, he loves going fast and he just wants to have fun!
Check him out for yourself. I am not going to lie, it’s kind of amazing. And remember he is only 12.
Ok, switching gears. That was way too much snowboard talk for me, like way too much.
I made you Mini Cinnamon Buns. Oh and I made them in 30 minutes. Yup, 30 minutes! Oh, and I healthified them fo you. So now you can pop like 3 of 4 or maybe even 5 and not feel guilty! I am not going to sit here and tell you that these are better than the real thing, but they way easier and still insanely addicting! Plus, you will not get the sugar comma you probably enter after eating one from the Cinnabon place ate the airport! It’s good to get some whole grain in every once and a while!
Healthy and Quick and insanely Delicious? Yup! I told Asher to leave some for tomorrow and she said “but, these things are so good”.
Why are mini foods so cute?
