This week has been a memorable one for Vanessa Bryant and her children after marking the first anniversary of Kobe and Gianna Bryant's death from a helicopter crash.

A day after marking the anniversary, Vanessa and her girls decided to go to familiar grounds to have fun and revisit old memories.
Vanessa warmed her fans' hearts with clips and pictures from their time out in a snowy park. This spot is familiar because Kobe and Vanessa brought their girls there when the basketball star was alive.
Vanessa, alongside her girls Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 1, could be seen in a couple of short clips she posted riding in innertubes on a snowy slope amid bouts of laughter.
The family ensured that their time on the snow was a memorable one. In one of the clips, Vanessa and her girls were joined by their longtime family friend, Pau Gasol, who has had a strong presence in their life since Kobe's death.
She revealed that there are days that look so dark and get her feeling down.
Vanessa has never stopped talking about how much she misses Kobe and Gianna, and in one of her posts, she remarked that she wished they would have been around for the family fun.
Of late, she has been reminiscing on her memories with the late Kobe. In one post, she shared a video of her going down the hill and revealed that she and Kobe used to race down that hill on their stomach.
Vanessa and her girls said that they are thankful for the enormous support and love they have received from their fans and friends since the death of Kobe and Gianna.
Recently, the 38-year-old mother opened up on her struggle with grief. According to her, grief can be a messed up emotion that leaves a person feeling confused.
She revealed that there are days that look so dark and get her feeling down, but she draws strength from her girls and tries to be strong for them.
Vanessa advised people struggling with grief to find what to live for. According to her, her daughters give her a reason to live and stay full of hope.
Vanessa and her family were recently touched by a letter from one of Gianna's best friends, Aubrey, who shared some of the memories with the late 13-year-old. Aubrey reminded Vanessa that she did it right when it came to raising Gianna. A statement her fans did agree with.
