Ice Fest

Last week was Ice Fest in C-burg and the kids always love braving the cold to check out the awesome ice sculptures! The highlight is always the ice-throne but this year they had something even "cooler" ~ a 40 foot ICE SLIDE...oh yeah, baby!

Of course lil D had an "incident" and one of the C-burg LAX players who were manning the slide had to swoooooop in and save my DS from being pummled at the end of the slide an on-coming slider. He was standing there in la-la land after his breath taking slide-ride...that kid, I swear.

We headed over to a sub shop for a quick dinner and caught the fireworks from the hill down the road from our house. IceFest rocks..and I'd like to give a big shout out to my bestie T-Flo for her hard work to make it all happen and for introducing me to the cool ice carving dudes!

Hitting the Slopes

Daddy and lil D have been doing quite a-lot-a this lately. The weather has been very uncooperative...going from bone-chilling winds to 55 degrees and sunny! To say the least the slopes have been unpredictable which makes it hard for the lil one to work on his boarding skills. He's still a trooper and even though this happened...

...when his dad smacked him in the lip with the safety bar, he continued on...for the love of the sport! They got to go out with our close family this past week when they were up for a vist from the sunny south. The little florida girls loved seeing snow for the first time and all TEN of the cousins got together on Sunday. The boys were playing video games, the girls played dolls and we all had a chance to catch up!
