we just returned to new york from a quick week in utah where josh and i gave a keynote address at rootstech! utah is always a good time since we’re able to see family and friends and during the winter months, enjoy all of the fun outdoor activities they have going on. if you’ve been following along on instagram or snapchat, you have seen some pictures from some snowboarding lessons which the kids and i attempted so we can keep up with papa on the mountain in the years to come. so we were glad we were able to tack on a couple of extra days around the conference to enjoy some of our favorite things in utah. more on the trip later, but i wanted to share a few photos from the most amazing ice castles we visited while we were there.
if you live around the midway area, it’s probably old news, but if you haven’t checked it out, it’s worth it! the entire thing is made of ice and there are so many fun tunnels and rooms and even a couple of slides made out of ice! it definitely gave me a little bit of anxiety while we were walking through the tunnels wondering if any of the icicles might be loose and could fall and basically kill us, but fortunately, all the ice stayed in place. ;)
do you see what i mean about being nervous one of those might just fall on you?!
ok, this little slide was seriously the funnest thing ever. i know, because i totally had to go down it.
eleanor insisted on taking conrad down all by herself (it was a very gentle slope, not steep at all, so you couldn’t gain any speed). they were so cute doing this over and over again!
all these years later and i still can’t get away from feet pictures. heaven help me.
catching drops of water from melting icicles! this was probably conrad’s favorite part of the afternoon.
what a good looking crew, if i do say so myself!
eleanor loved taking samson around in the maze of tunnels they had. she kept wanting us to split into groups and try to find each other again. love that she wants to do her own thing these days.
until next time, utah!
WEARING: my shirt is from marimekko (out of stock) and jeans from madewell. wearing sorel boots and beanie is old from american apparel. lip color is pink me up by maybelline. the kids and i are all wearing patagonia jackets (i even got mine from the kids section because they have better color options there. haha!) eleanor and samson’s hats are also from patagonia. boys are in hunter boots and eleanor’s in sperry boots.
