Winter Festival

So the Littles went to visit their Mom this weekend so I spent some quality time with my two. We got our butts kicked in Tae Kwon Do and then decided to go to the Winter Festival in a town about an hour north of us. Now mind you there is a winter storm watch in effect.

We drive up and I get a bit lost as I got off at the wrong exit but eventually we find ourselves in the village and where we need to be. First my SD card cracked it was so cold but yes I had another but of course could not get to it before the bonfire had died down a bit.

There were suppose to be fireworks but the fireman attending the bonfire said they were delayed and hour and well it was 7 degrees so we waited about 30 minutes before heading to dinner.

M1 sliding down the pile o snow on the beach while we waited for fireworks. Yes old fashioned "sled" aka cardboard box.

We played for several minutes but as the night went on the temperatures dropped more so we had to think about getting warm. We packed back into the car and took off for home

We also had fun sending off paper lanterns but the awesome photos my BFF got have clear shots of kiddo faces soooooo. If however you look to the upper right of the photo of M2 sliding you can see the lanterns that other folks lit off.

It was so much fun and we had a good time. We are hoping to go again next week too but get there earlier so we can have more fun.
