Introducing...the new snowboarding champion!

We had a blast on the slopes of Nagano, Japan last month (yes, it's been way too long since my last post).  I will spare you the boring details, but will include our photos and a shortened version of our trip.

We stayed at a place called Alpine Wind run by an Australian man and his Japanese wife.  We were in an area called the Japanese Alps, and it sure felt like it with the style of buildings and everything so full of snow.  I had to keep reminding myself that we were still in Japan because of all the English-speakers around.

The first day we were on the slopes, it was gorgeous...sunny and clear.  But of course, the day we had our camera it was snowing and foggy.

Bron's first encounter with snow.  Of course the first thing he does is eat it.

Where was Bronson during all of this snowboarding business?  Well, the first day we put him into the nursery/daycare center on the slope.  It actually turned out to be pretty affordable.  But we came out on this trip with some friends with little girls.  So, one of the days, we just took turns skiing and watching the kids.  It turned out to be a great setup.

This was our little group.  We couldn't quite get everyone's smiles coordinated.  :)

On our way home, this was our view of Mt. Fuji.  It was beautiful out there away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded city.
