josh made a couple of videos from our adventures snowboarding in utah a few weeks ago! the first one is from our little snowboarding date we did together and the second is a little bit of footage from eleanor and samson’s first snowboard lesson on the slopes! we didn’t have the camera out much during their lesson, so only had about a minute of film, but it’s still so adorable. those little boards get me every single time!
and the video josh made of our date was so sweet. snowboarding has been such a big part of his life and when we were dating i remember him even expressing how much he hoped to make it a big part of his family’s life someday. back when he said that, i remember thinking yep. nope! if ya marry me, i’ll be with some hot cocoa in a lodge somewhere staying warm. good luck with that! but i have to tell you, after this day of snowboarding together, i felt like this just might be something i’m up for year after year with my family in the years to come, because i had a lot of fun! thank you for being patient, josh! and for getting some video, too! it’s been fun to watch that fall in slow-motion over and over again! ;)
and eleanor and samson were such brave little kids up there, especially the first time we went up the ski lift and down the mountain together! looking back, i really wish we would have taken more video during their lesson. but it was difficult to when i was trying to stay on my board myself (this was from our very first day on the slopes!) and josh was with conrad. next year! when samson puts all his “tricks” together for everyone. he’s been practicing in our living room with a book underneath his feet pretending it’s his board. haha! i have a feeling he’s going to be a bit of a daredevil someday on the mountain which truly terrifies me, if i’m being totally honest.
