Ice Festival 2010

Last weekend our little town of Vicksburg had their annual Ice Festival and Chili Cook off. Gabe and I LOVE to go and watch the Ice Sculptures being made. We got up early Saturday morning, ate breakfast and then put our Snow pants, Coats, Hats, Boots & Gloves on and were ready for a fun morning downtown. We walked out the door, I locked the door as I always do only to remember just as the door shuts....I have NO keys on my person to get back into our house. John was at work and the "hide a key" had been removed, used and not put back. So here we were LOCKED OUT! So I looked at Gabe and said let's go check out those Ice Sculptures and we will worry about getting back into the house later. Gabe's most favorite person Kelly met us there which TOTALLY made his day complete. He loves the view from the top which he can in no way shape or form get from his short little Mama!
This is one of the guys working on a Flying Pig!

This was a neat sailboat that our Church sponsored to have made. The talent that goes into each of these is amazing!
This one was my favorite from the weekend. I love the detail that went into this one. It was a great Ice Fest 2010 and we can't wait until next year. We didn't try the Chili but did hear that it they all were very good. Maybe next year we will give it a try.
P.S. We did get back into the house. Kelly let me barrow her car so that I could go and get John's from him at work. Alls well that ends well and Gabe and I had a terrific day together.


  1. I've never been to an ice festival. It looks like a lot of fun. So glad that you were able to get back into the house. That's a bonus!

  2. This sounds like a very fun day! we saw them doing some ice sculpturing in downtown BC one day and I knew the boys would be very interested to watch but we were on our way to go somewhere else and I suppose it is helpful to be prepared with the correct winter-wear if going to one of these events:)
