I love this shot because literally from our first date to today (6 years later) he still opens the car (or helicopter 😉 door for me every time. Cody was so excited he was giddy like a little kid! 🙂 They let him go up front for part of it and he thought it was coolest thing ever!
Cody and I didn’t get a real date night (like alone just us) until about a year after B was been born. Now that we found a good babysitter we try to make it a weekly or every other week event. Sometimes time slips away but it’s really something I look forward to with him!
We have our usual date nights like dinner, or a movie and then we have a list of extreme date nights for special occasions. A private helicopter ride had been on our list so we got dressed up, enjoyed a bottle of my favorite wine, and made it a night! A crazy storm rolled in like an hour before and I thought we were for sure going to have to cancel but it actually worked in our favor. We delayed taking off until it passed, leaving a beautiful sunset! We flew over the Great Salt Lake, Antelope Mountain, and finished over downtown Salt Lake by the Capital and Temple Square. It was by far one of the funnest things we’ve done!
When we decided we wanted to do a helicopter ride I immediately knew I wanted to bring a bottle of riesling, one of my personal favorites, to toast the occasion and knew it would be a perfect excuse for a toast for the Chateau Ste. Michelle’s #AToastTo competition. So here’s a toast to adventure, love, and cheers from above.
This week’s theme is a toast to wine (too easy!) so make your toast to wine with their cute toast generator and share it on Twitter and Instagram using hashtags #ToastContest and #AToastTo for a chance to win a couple prizes including a trip to Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Summer Concert Series.
