We took Stella skiing for the first time this past weekend. Seth and I have a huge desire to teach our children to gain a love for the mountains, since we both grew up around them. Living where we currently do, we'll have to make the best of our limited resources. But it was really good to get Stella on the bunny-hill mountain, and it only took about 15 minutes until an emotional breakdown. We didn't push it and stopped when she wanted to stop. I was actually excited to take some speedy runs even though I was snowboarding on granules. It's always nice to get the wind blowing through the hair. I think next season we'll buy a family pass and make good use.
