gosh, this trip to utah has been nothing short of wonderful. we flew in just as a big snowstorm hit and it has made our time here all the more magical to see the snow everywhere. i wanted to share some photos from our first day on the slopes. i admit i’m usually skeptical of how the day will go, especially in the morning when we’re getting everybody dressed and all the layers and bundling takes a year to complete because some little thing is bothering them and someone realizes they have to go potty again after they are fully dressed for the mountain, but somehow, at the end of the day, we’re always walking away being like, “that was so much fun!” i think we are one step closer to josh’s dream of having his family be a snowboarding family....Read more
