Winterlude 2010

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

We decided to go and check out the Winterlude ice sculptures downtown this morning. The temperature wasn't TOO cold and I wore my new red Olympic mitts to keep my hands warm. I only got a few pictures before my camera's batteries died (and I didn't have any to replace them). This happened just as I was trying to get a photo of the two of us. DRAT! We did get to eat some yummy Beaver Tails and hot chocolate though.

This walrus was all made of plastic (including hundreds of plastic water bottles).

One of the ice sculptures:

There were all sorts of handknit objects covering a bunch of trees including this little creature perched on branch.

Snowy Virginia!

A quick trip to Virginia at the end of January to see our buds for a week. This is the first time we've seen snow in Virginia and we had it TWICE in one week! Still, it was nice to see our friends and do some shopping.
